*PUA Lingo does not endorse or support the use of these terms. We strive to describe them the best we can based on the seduction community’s uses for them in improving men’s (and some women’s) dating lives.
KAMI is a method of using kino to physically move a target. This can be used to gain compliance from a target, escalate physically, or for logistics and isolation. For example, if a PUA wants a girl to move with him to another side of the room, he can place his hand on her lower back and gently nudge her as he moves forward. If she’s sitting, touching her in the back of her upper arm will indicate for her to stand.
The PUG Badboy has specific KAMI movements that actually physically move a girl based on her muscular reflexes. By pushing a girl near the front of her hip area lightly, she will feel compelled to sit down. Also, placing your thumb and index finger around her wrist will physically lock her hand to your hand, and these pulls become physically powerful to actually move the girl, should she hesitate. This is informally known as a “wrist lock,” by lightly but surely guiding the woman towards a path of least resistance. If any physical resistance takes place, however, be sure to let go and calibrate. Do not become a physically forceful chode. Be physically influential.
An additional use of KAMI can be combined with anchoring, in preparation for later physical leading. For example, crossing a street can be used as an opportunity to put one’s hand on her back and “lead” her across the street, even though that’s where she’s going anyway. Reinforcing such kino serves as a physical yes-ladder that can be used to gain compliance later on.
