Does anyone find that the harada hold is painful?

Very painful. Especially for a couple days after a good hour or two of practising. I personally don't think it's worth it. My hands I do not beleive, were meant for it.

Similar, but not the same.

I have to agree with Wayno. It's nice in theory, but I'm not that much of a coin guy to actually go through with this. I could see serious coin workers using it, but I don't see just casual coin workers really getting into it.

The skin in that particular area of my hands is pretty thin, and tight. I can hold certain coins there, and others I cannot. But in doing so, it causes pain.

If a sleight is going to cause pain on my tendons, and tenderness for days afterwards, it's not for me. Not to mention that with the amount of pain I receive, I can only imagine that actual damage is being caused.

That's a very good point. I know of a few people that can do the move naturally, but if you really have to work at this concealment, it's not worth it. That's why I'm not learning it now. It's not worth it to me to risk more pain on top of carpal tunnel.

The Harada Hold DVD would probably be a good place to start. Just a thought.

Haha.

Sorry, I searched it, but from the forum, nothing appeared. I should've searched harder.

Thanks,
Garrett

I actually bought the harada hold dvd on ebay about two and a half months ago (give or take a week or two) for about 25 bucks. Anyway, i won it, paid for it, and it still hasn't shown up! :evil: I've e-mailed the guy a couple times to no avail. Anybody know how to get your money back when an ebay transaction goes wrong?
