It seems Koko-san has rather special kind books and DVDs. So the basic books such as Card College will fill up missing knowlege.

Vol.1 and Vol.2 of Card College will be suficient for some time.

You are right in that it is a lot of material there, Also there is a lot of great material there. Watch the videos performance sections and the reaction from the audience. You can get some idea how effective a trick can be. Just remember that they edit the videos and show the strongest reactions a lot of the time. Also, many times it is not the trick but the presentation that is getting a reaction. For example, two magicians do the same trick but preform it differently. The way that the first magician presents the effect might not get much reaction while the second magician blows away their audience with it. Presentation is just as important as the trick itself.

Koko,
I would suggest that you focus on the large collection that you already have. Start practicing the tricks that you like from your books and DVDs and see what fits your style.
Everyone has there own style and I would suggest taking a lot of time and finding out what your style is and build on it.

Good luck,
John

Hi Koko

That's some collection you have there, I really do not think that you need to add anything to it. My suggestion is that you start to work through what you already have and don't spend any more money.

What you already have should last you for many years to come. if you are serious about studying magic then it is time to stop being a collector and actually start learning and using the stuff you already own.

Practicing technique and performance will help you to decide for yourself what your next steps should be to reach a higher level.

You can do amazing things with the hindu shuffle control,double lift,top change,force and palm. learn one method that you are comfortable with of these 5 sleights and build your own routine with them.its easy to become obsessed with learning to much material and not perfecting anything.Hope this helps.

Koko,

you have almost an overkill of material. And I do understand that the wealth of material is a challenge.

Here is my proposal. Design your magic card show using tricks that you have. Once the show (15-30 minutes) stands. You start to practice. Having mastered the show, you can then start to replace tricks using your wealth of material. in other words, just watch your material searching for an ideal opener and so on.
