No you wont, there are ways out of it. It also depends on what kind of jacket you get, and what size and how many loops are on it.

If you are new to escapology, I would suggest getting Dixie Dooley's series on the subject. I do believe Penguin Magic sells the series. It will teach you all you need to know as a beginner.

Not really, It doenst teach the sj escape well or hand cuff. But it does teach other great effects and other need to know stuff. But dont get it just for the sj or cuffs.

I would check out cannons.

The 'shoulder dislocation' story was a horror story cooked up by Houdini to discourage would-be imitators.
