The black course is a 4-day experience with the most powerful techniques in the world.


Learn the most insane skills in persuasion that I will never teach in public, and walk out the door of this event with skills and tactics that less than 1% possess.


The black course contains the elite-level training that I consider to be dangerous, but also has the greatest potential to create radical, positive change. Remember, a tool is only made evil by its user.


There's no gimmick - this course contains content and methods you will never hear anywhere else in the world. I built these methods through working with the world-leading experts in the science of psychology, behavior, and neuroscience.

Top Secret

Training in advanced tradecraft and human engineering. The only place in the civilian world to obtain this level of knowledge. 

*Background check and interview required*


Yes. I require all attendees to undergo a background and criminal records check for the course, as well as a 4-minute phone call with a government-level Artificial Intelligence system that is designed to screen candidates using four automated questions to assess/identify risk.



In the last decade, the advancements I've made in the field of influence, persuasion, and what we now call behavioral surgery, have progressed as if we went from sending telegrams to facetime calls. The persuasion industry as a whole has had a habit of doing many things that were limiting:


  • Relying on linguistics when they aren't that effective at all
  • Developing new techniques based on old techniques
  • Trying to use therapy techniques in regular conversations for influence (this one's actually hilarious, and you'll learn more in the course)
  • Ignoring the mammalian brain (which makes all our decisions)
  • Ignoring the spinal cord (which can control the whole body)
  • Using 'hypnosis' as an influence tool
  • Pretending that conversational hypnosis is effective in persuasion
  • Using technology from the 1960's (before brain imaging was even a thing)
  • Teaching 'magic' phrases and language 'patterns' that belong in the 1960's (with bellbottom pants)
  • Completely ignoring real brain science - I'M NOT KIDDING


The only system developed using over $12M in research and FMRI-backed results. Kaptor is only taught at the Black Course, and it is highly recommended that you be a Mastery graduate to participate in the Kaptor training. 

I was upset too when I learned how outdated and ineffective these things were. Trust me, I spent a lot of money and time developing techniques out of this stuff for HIGH STAKES situations, and I thought that I had access to the best stuff out there…but that is only because people THINK it's the best - the marketing for this material is better than the material itself in most cases.





The black course is a 4-day intensive training with hundreds of guided exercises, examples, demonstrations, and walkthroughs of the most advanced influence and persuasion skills known to mankind (so far).


In this course, I am going to walk you through the most amazing and awe-inspiring methods of performing behavioral surgery on thoughts, feelings, decisions, and actions. Everyone in attendance will be a person who has a tremendous positive impact on the world.

I want our clients to be the most dangerous person in the room. The unfair advantage will always come down to human factors.

The first day, I'm going to walk you through the most incredible demonstration of this live with a volunteer. You'll understand persuasion and influence from a neurological perspective, not someone claiming to have 'studied' the brain. This day will lay the groundwork for what's ahead so that you will understand the brain in a way I guarantee you have never seen or heard of before.


A very brief overview:

  • Walkthrough of the crossfade method (never released and never will be outside the Black Course)

  • Full breakdown of the neurology and neuroendocrinology of how persuasion works

  • How lacking a REAL education in neuroscience is holding you back from just about everything

  • Breaking down the brain in real time: see a live brain scan of techniques in action and see for yourself how effective vs. ineffective techniques really are

  • Watch a live brain EEG of how enhanced persuasion works on the brain

  • Develop a whole new understanding of neurology with a hands on experience that you will NEVER forget

  • Finally get acquainted with what you can get the spinal cord to do in a single conversation - and how to leverage this in yourself and others

  • Step-by-step walkthroughs of neurological activation

  • The real reason linguistics will never work - YES, I'll prove it with a brain scan

  • How to leverage deep-brain stimulation in conversation (nope. It's not linguistics)

  • Evening: small groups and mandatory review and practice with Chase and his team

  • End of day exams and remediation




On day two, you're going to literally download a new behavior pattern for yourself. We already know the influence and persuasion training community is grossly ignorant of real neuroscience. Sadly, they are also lacking in teaching the ONE thing that matters more than all skill - how we think and behave.


Here's an example: Let's say I studied linguistics for fifty years, then I spent ten million dollars consulting with persuasion 'experts' and developed the most powerful, devastating linguistic technique on the planet.


Pretty cool right?


But what if I then handed this technique to a person with low self-confidence, or social anxiety? They would fail.


I don't claim to know why internal behavior is so wildly ignored, but I do know that it is. There's a very specific set of internal traits that you need to be a powerhouse, and it will absolutely be the single reason you fail or succeed.


In short, here's day two:

  • I will reprogram you using something you will never expect to download all these new behaviors

  • You'll get a tool that will run like an artificial intelligence machine in your head to reprogram your personal beliefs and behaviors

  • You will take an exam that isn't very comfortable: it will show you every single data point that is holding you back from success (and the machine will fix it for you)

  • You will sit with my team and develop a detailed outline of your psychology, and how to leverage what is already in your head to drastically change the game

  • A step-by-step walkthrough of The AvikPro™ rapid behavior change system - then I'm using that system on you to reprogram your confidence and belief systems

  • Deep-level, emotional walkthroughs of how to edit memories using a physical machine that I will only share in this one setting, and will never release publicly - this machine is only available in one place in the world, and you can even own one

  • Evening: a group exercise to test drive your entirely new system, and take the new psychology you have for a walk

  • Nightly mandatory rehearsal of AvikPro ™ system that you can use on clients or friends

  • Mandatory review and followup - all notes and data captured from today will be reviewed along with a wrap-up exam for day two

  • This doesn’t even cover half of what's in day two (some of it will not be shared)






Day three is all about the practical. It's great to have a full understanding of neurology and to possess the internal skills required, but this is where we will get into the 'fun stuff' that people always think about when it comes to this type of training.


Day three focuses primarily on using Defense Department-level brain enhancement to train you to rapidly read behavior and profile anyone around you. Forget the PowerPoint, this system of learning wasn't created by me, but it is going to be a little scary how fast you're able to learn behavior skills.


By the third hour, you'll be able to profile behavior in a way that took me 13 years to achieve. Facial expressions, fears, insecurities, limiting beliefs, self-doubt, and concealed psychology will start to jump forward into your mind when you speak to someone.


Here's a tiny snapshot of day two:

  • Rapid training protocol for behavior profiling

  • Live examples and demonstrations - you'll be able to do these by the end of the day (guaranteed)

  • The lockpick: how to get deep-level information even out of people that are closed off

  • Exercises in profiling to test your skills and fix errors - you'll be using the lockpick method by now

  • Covert methods using sound, light, and smell to obtain data, and drive behavior

  • Tie-in: by midday, you'll be able to read behavior to an extreme degree in under 45 seconds, and you'll have the tools to immediately process this information

  • What to do with a behavior profile: how to use the secret info you obtained in the profile to communicate

  • Evening practice and rehearsal: walkthroughs with real people that aren't attendees - you'll be profiling strangers who will be there only this evening for this reason

  • Evening exams: mandatory exams to ensure everyone is ready for day four





This day brings it all together - this is by far the most confidential day, and no recordings will be made, and all electronics will be shut off. Inside day four, you'll experience the true nature of how powerful these skills are. The day consists of step-by-step methods of how to leverage psychology in the most powerful ways you have ever seen in your life.


The 8 Formulas

  • The 8 formulas I will never share in any forum outside the Black Course

  • Walkthroughs of each formula (I promise you'll have them memorized before 11AM)

  • Neurological breakdowns of how to use them with the 'equipment' you will learn about

  • Live demonstrations of all formulas with a volunteer and brain scan

  • Usage in field (you'll use these immediately and continue until they are perfected)


Live Polygraph Demo

  • It's not what you think (leveraging the formulas for good)


400 years beyond hypnosis

  • In 13 minutes, I will show you what has been missing from every system in the world

  • The breakthrough methods that I use for Avery programming

  • How Avery works and why


Creating Avery Programs in Everyday Life

  • How you can build artificial intelligence that is self-learning in anyone you meet in under 7 minutes




The second half of day four will never be shared. Working late into the evening, you will learn and experience the real reason this is called AvikPro™





You'll leave this event with friends you'll keep for life. Most importantly, everyone you will have met is also a positive force in the world. Without the need for relentless reminders that you need to be a good person, you'll have skills that less than a hundred people on earth possess.


The AI phone screening system I use is the most advanced system ever built…I've even been featured with it in peer-reviewed academic research. This is why Uncle Sam uses it. The AI is offered through ClearSpeed technology for human risk assessment and identification.


2 0 2 3

By the end of day one, you'll have a 10x on the investment you've made in yourself. By the end of day three, you will NEVER see the world the same again.
What you'll find in this course is a comprehensive system built through decades of hard-won research and experimentation in the most arduous conditions known to man.

This system not only had to be razor-sharp, it had to deliver results fast. The stakes were high, and failure wasn't on the table.



The Black Course will be held at a private estate

- Venue details to follow after your seat is secured

- The estate has sleeping arrangements for 16, and some guests may choose to book a room locally at a nearby hotel.

If you choose to book in a nearby hotel, or the bedrooms have all been booked, your meals and all amenities of the estate will still be available to you.



The Black Course is being held in Provo, Utah due to its peaceful, serene nature, and brethtaking views. 

The private estate is a luxury location with access to all the city has to offer. Due to the schedule of the event, time will be limited to participate in activities on training days.

You must attend every event segment in order to continue to the following day.

**Access to electronics will be strictly controlled for this event. No recording will be allowed.


 Most guests will be in business casual attire.

The social hour on the evening before the event will be held poolside at the estate and will be catered.

Feel free to dress for a poolside occasion.

We are looking forward to taking care of you. 

Reach out to Sara on her private line (in your email) with any concerns you have before or during the event.

Kaptor was designed as a system to rapidly engineer behavior when less than 17 minutes were available to an operative. From introduction to recruting a spy in 17 minutes or less. Backed by actual results. 

There are countless 'persuasion experts' in the world. I've fallen victim to them as well, thinking I would get some holy grail of influence when I attended a course, or bought some book they were hocking online. I know the disappointment of getting duped by marketing. Many of the experts you've heard of, I've hired to help with projects for Uncle Sam, and sadly, no one delivered anything more than anecdotal folklore influence strategies that have been sitting in books for decades. 

After a decade of training with the best in the world, and having access to (nearly) unlimited resources, Kaptor was born. My baby. Kaptor's birthday was August 29, 2015. This was the day I used it on the one person who stood to make the decision of which intelligence training material should be used. When I played the video of the interaction back, the room was silent. 

Kaptor will never be in a training manual (other than BxFM, which is not for the public). You'll never see me discuss it online as some marketing ploy.

Kaptor is a tool.

Like any tool, it can be used for good, or it can be used to hurt people. Since I own Kaptor, it's my personal decision to control access to it, and to control how it is employed. If you're at the Black Course. (which might be the last one ever), you'll learn Kaptor, and you'll instantly see why I have you sign a bunch of documents before the training starts.
