I have a question for everyone regarding a routine I put together with these rings. It's short but to the point. I don't own the actual video yet but do know some moves with the Ninja rings that have been shown to me by magi.

I bought the rings first to work on them and see what I could come up with on my own. My routine is as follows, like I said short but to the point.

1. Count rings into left hand and give 2 linked to spectator to hold onto tight, assuming they're unlinked
2. Explain a difference between a magic link and a "forced link" ( silent vs crash )
3. Do a hard forced link for them the spin link on the table
4. Now I offer to magically transfer the link from my rings onto theirs, I unlink the rings and rock them back and forth slowly while moving them away from eachother in front of their hand. (IE now a link has happened in their hands supposedly).
5. I say something to the effect of now you saw a hard force link but everything was moving so quick, I'm going to give you the chance to see it again but this time closer, and I do a crash link onto the linked rings in their hand.
6. Now I allow them to try the forced link and they do the spectator link onto the linked 3, giving me the 4 linked rings.
7. Now before I put them away I need to make sure they'll fit so I'll do the last ring with one hand and do the one hand block link. As they go in my pocket I unlink the key and it's reset to go again.

What does everyone think? It's short and sweet and can be done without a table if you'd like to do away with the spin link. Like I said I don't have the vid YET, it's coming. Is there anything else you think I should add or take out? Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks everyone.
take care,

The Ninja rings are honestly one of the best tricks of its kind. I personally own a gold set, and a silver set. Of course I fell in love with this trick the minute I saw shoot Ogawoa perform it in the close up room at the Magic Castle last July. It's now one of my favorite tricks to carry around with me, and in my close up act. Smile I do recommend for anyone to purchase the Ninja Rings Instructional dvd to fully understand the moves. But I totally agree that everyone should try to come up with their own routine, using new creative moves and patter. Smile

What! You can't read Japanese?
don't panic friend, You'll get the money for the Dvd!
If you have any experience with Linking Rings, I'm sure you could improvise something till you can afford the dvd. Its worth the extra buck! As I'm sure you know by now Magic is an expensive hobby, especially if you buy the good stuff like myself! It really is a beautiful trick! Good luck! Sincerely Magic Johnathon. Smile

The rings are alittle hard to keep up with if you don't sit down and work on then about twice a week some of the harder links will leave you I worked and worked until I could get the one handed link down but I sat it down for a week and had to learn it agian

You really need the DVD, you learn so much by watching him perform.

I just bought a set of 8 4" steel rings from the magic shop in town for a measly $10 or so.

Where can I locate McClintock's HELP & INSPIRATION as well as Haydn's 4 Ring Routine?

My wife had given me a set of the gold plated Ninja Rings for a 50th wedding anniversary gift! I didn't care too much for using a table, so to open I am using Aldo Columbini's bit doing the Vernon ring display. I have been finishing with a ring and rope thing that again displays a solid ring.

I'm still looking for other influences to further develop my routine.

By the way, last week I received the Brooke Multiplying Bottle routine from Stevens. Thank you for you help.

For those on a strict budget the Empire small set are well made, good weight & work very well. Lots of items can be added for close up from Tarbell, Colombini as well as the beautiful Ninja routine. These things pack small & play very well.

I love these rings but I think some magicians are using them the wrong way.

I would not use them for the same venue that I use 10” or 12” rings. There strength is in Close Up Table or Walk around. Easy to keep in jacket pocket and if I do not have a table for the “table Link” I just skip it.

I got an extra single solid ring to swap out so now as an afterthought I remove the rings from my pocket at the end of the routine and let them be examined, very strong.
