The Art of Palming by Javi Benitez
If you’ve got people watching your sleight of hand, you’re doing it wrong.
Written into the laws of card technique, smooth beats speed every time. That’s fact. The idea is to make your sleight of hand look like ANY natural movement. And that natural movement needs CAUSE to be there at the time it’s performed. A reason for the movement.
And that’s why Javi’s sh!!t goes past EVERYONE.
Natural. Fluid. Nothing to look at.
The first time we met Javi Benitez he fooled the Ellusionist team with a simple 'card to pocket' ….5 times in a row. His palm is so fluid, it moves through the cracks in your brain and you CAN’T see it.
And that’s the only reason for Penn’s outburst on the 'Fool Us' set. Even Penn and Teller, with as much as they know, were unable to visibly see Javi’s sleight of hand. He won the trophy with palming.
In life, there’s a saying, to learn and absorb from the best. This full more than hour long treatise will have you performing better all-around moves and magic, not just palming. Pick up Javi’s thoughts and thinking patterns toward palming and it will make your moves automatically smoother, more invisible. Plus, you’ll get the fine tuning of Javi’s SMOOTH PALM which is worth the cost of the video by itself.
In Spain, this sells for $35. We reduced the price by $10 in order to spread this wealth into magic circles everywhere.
I've never seen a palming as smooth as this one. It's amazing but not easy to do. I would have loved to see the tutorial from different angles, espeially from the over the shoulder view. I am missing this with nearly all tutorials.
Just amazing. Everybody can take somthing from that Download.
I was quite disappointed. I was expecting a much wider variety of palming techniques to be discussed. There isn't even a mention of palming from the bottom of a deck. The focus is more on the specific tricks taught than on the art of palming.
