Diagonal Palm Shift

The Diagonal Palm Shift is an efficient method for secretly palming a card from the middle of the deck. It has a strong economy of emotion and can be used in the context of many effects. This is an advanced technique so make sure you are comfortable with the basics of palming before attempting to learn this.

Card Mucking Tutorial

In this video, Jeremy Griffith teaches a mucking technique that allows you to change a card either secretly or visually. Mucking comes from the gambling world where card cheats would secretly swap in high value cards in order to increase their chances of winning. Magicians have adopted the technique to be used in card effects and demonstrations. Please use responsibly!

Zarrow Shuffle Tutorial

The Zarrow Shuffle is arguably one of the greatest false shuffles ever devised. It cleverly simulates an ordinary tabled riffle shuffle while maintaining the complete order of the deck. This is an advanced technique and will take a good deal of practice to learn well, but it has a lot of applications and can be used in many card tricks.

How to Deal Cards like a Professional Dealer

Have you ever seen the way that professional dealers deal cards to players across the table from them? This is a dealing technique known as "sailing cards" and allows you to deal cards long distances and with accuracy.

It's a useful card skill to learn if you enjoy playing card games and also if you're interested in learning false dealing techniques. If you want to be able to do second deals or bottoms deals, then often times you will do these deals while sailing the cards to someone sitting across the table from you in the context of a magic trick or gambling routine.

Clip Steal Color Change

An awesome color change that was originally published in the 1920's, but seems to have been largely forgotten since... Our instructor Vinh Giang also covers a variation of this change that allows you to wrap your fingers completely around the deck and still make the card change, which it makes it look all the more impossible!

A Brilliant Prediction Effect with Coins

In this video Vinh Giang performs and teaches a brilliant prediction effect that ALWAYS WORKS. This routine has a lot of built in audience interaction and a killer ending. Best of all, it uses a handful of coins which are an extremely relatable object and can easily be carried with you always.

The Snap Double Lift

 

This is a great extension that can be added to your current double lift to make it more convincing and to demonstrate singularity in the cards. The Double Lift is one of the most important moves in card magic so it's well worth the time to practice it till you master it!
