Product Description

Ken Niinuma is not a household name in the west, but he has quietly amassed a very, very impressive arsenal of original, easy card magic. Joshua Jay "discovered" Ken on a trip to Japan nearly a decade ago. They have worked for months to bring you such an unusual and, frankly, exciting collection. This is NOT the kind of material you will find in magic shops or online stores. This is a rare glimpse into what close-up magic looks like very far from where most of us reside.

So what does Ken Niinuma's magic look like? Think John Bannon, Allan Ackerman, and Caleb Wiles...with a distinctly Asian flair. Here are details on three routines found in the collection:

Waltz: a beautiful effect for couples where under impossible conditions two signed selections find each other.

Thunderstruck: The Bannon Triumph, Japanese style. In this blockbuster Triumph extravaganza, you find all the cards of a particular suit, and then find ALL the other suits in an unexpected, surprising ending.

Crackdown: This is that rare sandwich effect worth learning (we're cynical about most sandwich tricks, but this is GOOD). Two selections are inserted fairly into the deck and the Kings then placed face up in the middle. With no moves whatsoever you immediately spread the deck to show that the Kings have moved throughout the deck to sandwich the selections.

The name Three Secrets is a hint - a big hint, actually. There really are three secrets hidden within this DVD. There is much more than meets the eye, so happy hunting, easter-egg fans!

This product was interesting in a few different ways.

First, I loved the whole feeling that the setting of the DVD gave you - there was just something about it that is indescribable.

The production quality is not great but it is not horrible either - somewhere in the middle. The lighting and the sound level for the music are good. The video is a little bit grainy at times but nothing that affects the ability to see the performance clearly nor the ability to learn the effects. There is no talking - everything is taught via text on the screen. It was kind of annoying because even though the video would freeze momentarily as the text was on the screen, sometimes it was too fast to read without having to pause it. The English text was very well-written and easy to understand, which made things very clear and easy to learn.

The three effects that you learn are not earth-moving and are not new, but rather they are unique approaches to existing effects.
