Would you like to improve your Double Lift technique?
The Double Lift Project has been designed to help you improve your technique with the core move in card magic. As you are a magician, you already have a double lift that you use, but are to totally happy with it?
I'd like to invite you to try out one of the magic tricks taught on the DVD for free.
You can watch the performance and tuition videos here
When magicians come to The Merchant of Magic for tuition, they a have made the choice to move away from self working card tricks, and hope to add a little card technique to their working material. We usually start them on learning the Double Lift, as it is a fundamental building block to so many magic tricks with playing cards. Some magicians ONLY use the Double Lift in their card magic simply because it is so practical for a huge range of card magic tricks.
We've seen many working magicians who only have a passable double lift. Many magicians have clumsily technique, and use misdirection instead of technique to make it effective. It doesn't have to be that way. You can advantage of the many variations and context specific techniques to super charge your double lift.
Spend a moment to examine your double lift in a mirror. Be honest with yourself:
Does it REALLY look undetectable?
Does it look exactly the same as when you perform the normal action without thinking?
Do you find that you need to look down at the cards as you do the move?
Would it really stand up to close inspection?
No matter how often we repeat an action, we don't improve it unless we pay mindfull attention to it. There's always a good reason to go back to a move that we think we have mastered and examine it in the cold light of day.
