one thing I wanted to say in the video but forgot to is that you need to use a break on your DL, its just sloppy if you don't in the video you posted you messed one up because you weren't using a break, even if you hit it 3/4 times and feel awesome, that's 1/4th of the time your spectator is gonna have a laugh at your expense when you mess it up.

Gary, could you please clarify that? Are you saying that all DL's need a break? Are you saying that Strike or Pushoff DL's need a break?

so sorry, my bad, What I was getting at is that at a beginners level he needs to be working with a break, as he did miss one in his video, I personally still use a break just because I like the extra security,

yes there are methods that do not require a break, but they need to be worked on a lot and it is my belief that you should learn with a break first.

I reckon this thread has had enough, given the subject. Folk will post on it, I'm sure, but really?

I haven't seen this much vitriol since Dickie Attenborough played 'Pinkie' in Brighton Rock.

It's, erm, "refreshing".

Now that I understand it, I can say that I disagree with your advice. I have personally taught students to use a push-off double and most of them are using it within a few weeks. And yes-- it's 100% sure. And I'm not special-- I'm sure there are many instructors out there with the same experience.

As to your video-- are you looking for critique? If so, I'll give it in private rather than in this thread...

Well then, just two different views, I personally learned to use a break in the DL and still do it. but you're entitled to your own opinion for sure, as for the video, I made it to offer a bit of help to the op but with only 4 years of experience I'm certainly open to any and all critiques and suggestions, shoot me a pm. that video certainly wasn't my best performance but no excuses, anything you see that needs work I'd love to hear about. just keep in mind I had no real plans as to what I was going to do and I'm definitely not an impromptu genius haha.

I must say, top trolling from the OP. You fooled a lot of people into thinking you were serious. Well done!

A few tips, try to relax, slow your movements down , feel the rythm. And also I can offer pointers if you would like , PM me any time. Just remember guys we were all beginners once , and the last thing we want to do is make Nicholas give up on magic , keep going and you'll soon be rewarded!
