I started coin magic 16 months ago and here are 5 routines performed by myself

I back to China now and cannot upload them to Youtube, so here are the links:

Routines include:
ponta the smith's winged silver,3 fly, one coin routine

Jemery Pei's CSB interchange

and a three coin routine

I will film and upload more later, probably after 1 week.

Only 16 months into coin magic...uh oh, here comes another prodigy!

Wonderful technique...smooth, uniform quick pace and near flawless.

Wonderful achievement with coin magic, thanks for sharing this, Xingchi. And welcome to the Café!!!!
To see a difficult thing lightly handled gives the impression of the impossible.

I watched the first video. Yes, the technique is flawless (and a million times better than I'll ever be!), but it just leaves me cold. Rather than look and feel like magic, it looks like he's just mechanically performing a series of memorized moves and actions. I don't know, perhaps I'm just getting jaded with the direction coin magic seems to be taking . . .

yes,I probably need to perform more in real life to make my routines to be more magical

For the CSB routine, I perform twice in real life and Winged silver is about 5 times and 3 fly 0 time and one coin routine with 2 times.

Very nicely handled. You have mastered the mechanics of some difficult manipulation in a very short time. Now comes the hand part.

Pick the one trick (and only one at this time) that you like best and slow it down. Pause so that the audience doesn't have to play catch up... if the material is strong, it will withstand a more leasurely pace.

Let each "effect" have a moment before moving to the next.


Find a video of Al doing Matrix to understand how to sell the moments.

Yes, I agree with u.

I will post more routines later, and one of them, is Coin Menagerie, by Armando Lucero.

Of course, I will not show that routine online to public,maybe just part of it or show it to ppl in real life

Well that is a very pleasant way to start the day.
Excellent work Li!
In another sixteen months, the rest of us will all be taking up needlepoint.

I agree with the above suggestions. Slower is better, especially when performing for non magicians.
Emphasize the moments of magic by pausing and relax the right hand more.
You may notice that Ponta works very quickly but that is not seen by the audience.
Perform for people whenever you can and study their reactions.

Wonderful!!

This certainly made my day.
Thanks for the new links, Li, and wellcome to the Café.
Performing for people will make your handling more casual and therefore more magical.
And remember what Bill Duncan has said above.

I'm already curious to see your development!
