Topic: Learning Pick Pocketing
Message: Posted by: mjc (Jun 23, 2018 01:48AM)
Hi,

I saw a post over here "http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=627054&forum=189", however it seems this gentlemen was a little more advanced in pick pocketing. I saw this section and was wondering if some of you who already are experienced can share how you learned how to pick pocket legally? Do you often require someone to practice on or do you buy a tall manikin and practice on that? I am slightly interested in learning about this maybe some day or reading up on it. Thanks.

Can't believe no response on this.

I've seen people recommend the Encyclopedia of Pickpocketing DVD set by Byrd and Coats but I'm not sure how good it is and what level it's at

Hi MJC. Jim Ravel's "Theatrical Pickpocketing" is an excellent book. Also "The Pickpocket Secrets" of Mark Raffles is a good one, but hard to find.
I have two fullsize manikins by my self. When I started I hired retired mens in the neighbourhood for practising.
Wish you the best. - Geir
