Card College 1&2 Personal Instruction Lesson 16: The Force 2


Card College is considered by many to be the most important and influential work on sleight-of-hand card magic for the beginner and the expert. With these videos the author personally coaches you. It is like taking one-to-one lessons!

This is Lesson 16 of the Card College 1&2 – Personal Instruction video course in card magic.

It will teach you two of the cornerstones of classic card magic: the Classic Force and the Riffle Force. The Classic Force is reputed to be one of the most difficult sleights to perform under fire. However, if you follow the step-by-step instruction in this lesson, you will be able to understand the problems involved and master them in a short time. You’ll also learn the sure-fire Riffle Force and some little-known details of handling, which will make it deceptive even to the most discerning spectator. The Force is an indispensable concept for some of the most astonishing card tricks you will ever perform.

Furthermore you’ll be able to enjoy the performance of an excellent trick done before real spectators. This is followed by a detailed discussion that will convey to you all the information needed to perform this easy, yet baffling piece containing an additional force not taught in the technical section.
