Er, using the move is not the same as Pioneering. If you want the pioneers, you want Cornelius and Elsmley.

Take care, Ian

In most routines that I know of, you only need to muscle pass horizontally, not vertically, which is much easier because you don't have gravity working against you. And in the cases that you need to MP vertically, usually it is only a few inches into a glass or something, unless you are doing the coin that falls up!

RJ,
That sounds like a cool move. Where did you learn it? Do you have any uses for it yet?




Milton Kort showed it to me in Nov of 1994. No there is no use other than Milton's use, which something he did for the kids in his drug store years ago. He was able to do it out of both hands and I think he did it just because he could. If anyone here from Detroit knows, there was a magic club that met at a resturant in Pontiac each week. I can't remember the name of the club but the resturant(I want to say it was a Cask-n-Cleaver or Steak-n-Ale) was right near the Dome. I was in Detroit the winters of 94-95 and 95-96 and staying with family in Royal Oak. There was also a very nice magic shop called "The Wonderground" I am not sure if it is still there. It was right on Main St in DT Royal Oak. And in 95 they were building a small theater the was attached to the shop.I meet some really great magicicans and I never got to thank them for introduceing me to Milton Kort, A man who taught me more about Life & Magic and how important finding a meeting point really is. I only got spend a few days each of those years with Mr Kort and if there is a true "inner circle" you can bet Milton Kort is sitting at that table...And as a tribute to Mr Kort I open my card act with "Kortially Yours" (P.7 Kort is now in Session, 1962 Ireland Magic Company)

If anyone here is from the Detroit area and was involved in magic back in 94-96 or knows if the Wonderground magic shop is still in business please PM I would like to find out the name of the magic club where I was introudeced to Milton Kort. I was performing holiday parties for Ford, Chrystler, & Johnson Reacearch. I was there Nov 10th thru Dec 22 in 1994 and Nov 12th Thru Jan 8th 95/96. I lost some of my contacts numbers and would really like to see if there was anyone who remember those days. So please PM me if you know.

Later & Out
RJ

Top be honest, I know the muscle pass, and only know "The Coin that Falls Up" and it gets great reactions. I think it was worth learning just for that.

By the way, Justin Miller also teaches tis move in his Silver Dream dvd as a vanish of a coin.

In addition to the sources mentioned, I believe Ian Kendall teaches this too in one of his videos.

I saw a performance of Tom Stone here ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KDriiutF4k ). Great work on the muscle pass.

Wunderground Magic has been serving up miracles from the Motor City since 1971. We've moved around a bit, but we're still in business and in the same area as we were back in '94.

You can do my Drop'N coin-thru-table using a quarter as well. In case you haven't seen it here is the link. It's the first trick on the trailer:

Jay Nobelazada has a great DVD for the muscle pass. Guarantees you will be doing it in 2 weeks ( I believe)

David Kong's DVD would be a nice start. Not only does it cover the MP, but also other uses for it. I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet.
One for the money...., 2 for a pass..., 3 for a Fly..., and 4 for matrix!

I found it quite easy to learn just from watching others do it, thought it will take a lot of dedication?
