List on knuckle-busting card moves.

Apr 9, 2019
Could someone give me a list of knuckle-busting card moves?
I think the most knuckle-busting move that I've learned is the side steal (if that is knuckle-busting).

It's a matter of perspective, but for me I'd say something like the Clip Shift might qualify, though that could just be because I haven't mastered it yet.
There are things I would have put on the list previously but now that I can do them they don't seem so bad - I'm talking to you Tivo 2.0!

Well, it depends. For me, something like the ambitious riser or the center deal are knuckle-busting. I struggled with the classic revolution cut much more than Kryptonite by Dan and Dave, but I wouldn’t call either of them truly knuckle busting. Considering the level you are in, your perspective of knuckle busting moves changes.

Is it as bad as jacking your hands up with continuous Muscle Pass practice and use?
Well, I practiced muscle pass for a while, muscle pass would cause your palm to hurt, but such moves would kinda hurt the neurons of you wrist and palm( more accurately Median and Ulnar nerves), and your hand would feel tired and sore for a while, but not necessarily painful.

Clipshift. I have trigger finger which I only recently learnt is basically CTS in your finger. Great.
