So I'm trying to learn how to do a muscle pass, does anyone have any good resources? So far I have been using this

I personally learned from Jay Noblezada's DVD on the muscle pass. It covers everything you need to know and its really quite affordable. After that, its just a lot of practise.

I learned the muscle pass from various videos on YouTube a few years ago.
There's really not that much to learn, it's just a matter of practice.

Getting a DVD about the move will not make it easier to learn.

For me I think it will... If I can understand the background of a move and then see it step by step from multiple angles, then it will help me understand it more

This move isn't about great resources or special techniques. Its about sh!tloads of practice. I learned it from a 5 second explaination on silver dream. He just gave the bare bones of the move and i just kept doing it. Antonio taught it perfectly there. Just keep doing it like he said. If you cant do it yet, you probably haven't done it hundreds of times like he told you to. My best tip is to just keep a half dollar with you and always be doing it. If you're watching tv just be shooting it into your other hand over and over. You'll get it.

I remember learning it I had a 20cent piece (about the same size as a half dollar I think) with me all the time. I was still at school so I would spend entire classes just shooting it from one hand to the other; building up that callus. It really is a matter of practise. I like Jay's DVD because it gave me a bit more confidence in practising the move as I knew I had the right technique...and Jay's teaching really resonates with me.
In sore hands,
Rev.

Rev, you can pull it off with a 20? Sweet, I thought it had to be bigger. I could probably try with my 2 pound coin which is a bit bigger than a 20 (I think) then.

Yeah, trust me, 20c piece is the perfect size and weight to get a good flight on your pass.

I can't seem to do it. Like not even that little pop you are supposed to be able to do...I don't think my hands are big enough (like thumb muscle and stuff, I have little kids hands but they are longer than kids hands)

Worst excuse ever for not being able to do the muscle.
The bigger the coin- the easier the pass is, hence, having small hands means that doing the pass with a half dollar will be easier for you than for someone with huge hands.

I started practicing the move with a half sheqel (a little bigger than a quarter, smaller than a half dollar) before I was even getting into coin magic, I just practiced it while I was in school.
There is really no need to get a DVD for this move because it is just so simple...
After you learn the move there are some DVDs you might want to check out because they teach applications (other than the famous ones like coin through window and coins that falls up) for the pass and ways of using it as a hidden move.
Fujii Akira and Shoot Ogawa got some killer stuff with the pass

It's a reason, not an excuse; there's a difference.


I have a 2 Pound coin that I use and it just doesn't work. I don't have a half dollar so that's not an option. I have what I have and it just isn't big enough. If my thumb muscle was bigger, it would make a smaller space thus making it a perfect reason and therefore, once again, I win.

Good day.
