Do you ever feel like like there aren’t enough hours in a day to practice your magic? If so, don’t fear… you are NOT alone.
These days, most passionate magicians have full lives and practice time is hard to come by. Fortunately, you can make strategic decisions about what to practice. And when you do that, a little practice practice can go a long way!
In this post, you’ll discover three little known practice strategies you can use to make massive improvements out of even the most limited practice time.
Here’s a short video that teaches you an easy-to-do technique which demonstrates how all three practice strategies work in ‘real life’. Practice this one simple move, and you’ll get one of the most diabolical secret forces ever devised.
Even better, you’ll acquire invaluable knowledge you can use to get the most out of the practice time you DO have!

Practice Methods with Built-in Backup
If you want to watch your magic soar, choose methods you can expect to start testing in live performance soon.
This is crucial, because performance gives you the most useful feedback you can use to master ANY technique.
Built-in Backup means you don’t need to perform the new sleight successfully to have a successful performance.
For example, you can practice the classic force when you perform tricks that don’t require a force!
Performing with Built-In Backup removes all the pressure, and makes it much easier to discover how a technique functions in a live performance.
Use your new techniques with Built-In Backup and you’ll discover higher levels of confidence quickly. You’ll also discover that your new confidence translates to fast progress and true mastery!
Splinter Your Sleights For Success
Most ‘sleights’ we choose to practice are actually combinations of two, or more, secret moves.
For example, the double turnover requires you to turn two cards over (as one) to display the face of a card.
Then, to complete the switch, you need to do the whole thing again.
Even experienced magicians miss out on simple ways to make learning magic easier. They sometimes forget to choose routines that make it as simple as possible to use their new sleight successfully in performance.
For example, if you want to practice your double turnover, seek out a trick that only requires you to work with the first part, or splinter, until you are comfortable with it, and then move forward from there.
I call this Sleight Splintering – and it’s how I was able to make progress with every advanced sleight I’ve ever learned. Splinter your sleights, and you’ll lower the ‘success barrier’ and master every move faster!
Create Practice Leverage to Learn Faster Than Ever Before!
Often, we seek to leverage our practice time by focusing on sleights we can apply to many tricks. This is called Method Leverage, because each sleight lets you expand the tricks, and combinations of tricks, you can perform.
Practice Leverage, on the other hand, is when you choose to work on skills that will make it easier to master ANY future sleight you want to practice.
For example, the left fourth finger break and the 7-point natural dealing position both give you Practice Leverage. They each make MANY sleights easier to practice and perform.
Put It All Together with the Blu-Ray Crossing-the-Cut Force
The Blu-Ray Crossing-the-Cut Force (see the video in this post) makes it easy to acquire the most valuable misdirection skill we know.
It gives you Practice Leverage, because EVERY sleight becomes more effective with misdirection.
It offers you a Sleight Splinter, because it allows you to master misdirection without combining it with ANY other technique. Watch the video in this post, and you can start using misdirection with confidence in a matter of minutes!
You also get Built-In Backup, because this Force will still deceive your audience even if you ‘miss’ the misdirection technique in performance.
That means you can practice the Blu-Ray Crossing the Cut Force and start using it in performance almost immediately. And in the process, you’ll discover the fastest way to master one of the most important, little used powers any magician can hope to possess.
