Well, I jsut signed up on the forums and am really starting to get into Cardistry. I have been performing magig for the last couple years but have recently started on cardistry (within the last 2 weeks). So here is a quick video I threw together to show off my (so called) skills.

Hey! Those were actually pretty smooth for only being a week or so in! The werm definetly needed work, but that sybil was pretty smooth, and the other flourish was nice as well!

Keep it up man!

Thanks. I really like cardistry because its a good break from practicing magic, not that, that is to boring but its great to throw around some cards..hopefully in a really cool way and not making a mess.

Overused music.

Onto the cards, for 1 week that's pretty damn good, probably better than me, but I don't focus on Cardistry and whatnot too much. Keep practicing.

Like everyone said, for a couple of weeks you're already ahead of the curve in my opinion. Flourishes gets smoother and faster the more you practice them.

Try learning some 'simple' cuts to help accent the longer 2-handed cuts.

Charlier
Revolution
Fans (one hand, thumb, pressure fan)
Springs and dribbles

Stuff like that. They're easier, and easy to practice a lot.


Can't wait to see more,

Yah, revolutions are really common in harder 2 handed cuts, or similar mechanics to it.

But really good for a week or so, you just look nervous and tense :p understandable.

Great work, keep up the practice man.

Thanks everyone! I will try and work on being a little less tense and work on the revolution cut.. I can get the cut done well about 3 out of 5 times...just needs more practice.

Nice work Curt! I'm wanting to begin into this as well...are you learning this from D&D's stuff?

Thanks, I am really trying to get "Akira" from D&D down...the dang spin on the thumb is killing me. O well. Hopefully I can get it,
