In his never-ending quest to make magic relevant in our world of mediated entertainment, Kainoa’s performances brings the impossible to his audience. While things on television or the big screen are entertaining, live magic confronts people, amazing them in the here and now. It reminds us all that real wonder is not just an experience of childhood nor can it truly be contained on a screen. It can—and should—be a part of everyday life. Magic created specifically for the audience at hand is exactly the sort of entertainment needed in a distant, cynical, and impersonal world.
Kainoa’s magic breathes new life into the tired phrase "right before your very eyes." His performances represent his wish to share with others uncanny experiences—events that bring to life our desires. By making money appear from nowhere, reading people’s minds, and proving that (with the right encouragement) everyone can perform the impossible, Kainoa endeavors to make magical experiences meaningful to all.
Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawai'i—which explains his hard-to-pronounce name—Kainoa has always been a performer. As a child, he turned cardboard boxes into stages and toy blocks into microphones. He took to the theatre before he entered kindergarten. Since he was always typcast as the villian, Kainoa was the only drama student who owned a fake mustache and black cape by junior high.
But he soon found a new outlet for his love of performance: magic. He was drawn to its easily personalized and interactive form of entertainment. He got his start with a comedy and magic group threateningly titled “The Magic Mafia.” Their motto "you'll be entertained or we'll kill you" didn't take the group far but did force many audience members to confess that the shows were hilarious.
By high school Kainoa was working alongside some of O’ahu’s top magicians, performing the sleight-of-hand that would make him famous. He worked at Curtis Kam’s showroom in Waikiki as well as in restaurants and for private shows in both the business sector and the tourist industry.
Deciding to pursue a career in higher education based on his interest in English Romantic poetry, Kainoa soon focused his research on Victorian magic. He became an expert in the publication and performance history of the period that made magic what it is today. Bothered by the present state of education, he continues to amaze those charming and innovative enough to hire him in and around his adopted state of Delaware.
Kainoa is known among his friends as being rather C3P0-ish: knowledgeable about obscure and unimportant things (after teaching college English for almost a decade), insistent on order (brought on by chasing small children around Punahou School’s Creative Writing and Magic classes), and overly concerned with being sent to a statistically-difficult-to-survive-in asteroid field.
He has recently found and married his ideal R2-D2 counterpart.

I have kind of known about Kainoa for a couple years but never knew where to get any of his material.
As a devote coin magician and devote student of David Roth I was excited about this lecture. The lecture was wonderful. This guy REALLY knows what he is talking about! Most of the material on the lecture I will add to my act. Some I need to work on for a while.
I highly recommend Kainoa's work for anyone who isn't afraid of practice. If you want the magic that will work tomorrow, don't watch this lecture. If you are willing to work a bit and deserve the magic, this is good stuff.
Excellent lecture from a coin master! Report this review

With Coin Magic being such a niche market it was really refreshing to see Penguin bring in Kainoa Harbottle to lecture. Especially since Kainoa is not know for easy coin magic.
Kainoa's lecture was full of great real-world material (no YouTube daydreams here!) No crazy magnetic, half-shell, nested, shaved, flipping, bite-out coins. And he presented it in a fun, causal manner.
He even threw a couple card tricks for those girls out there who just have to have one. :)
I really recommend this lecture anyone looking to get into the real work on coins!
My coins were on edge... Report this review

I have to give this my highest recommendation. If you like coin magic or want to learn coin magic this is a great learning experience. Kainoa has some great thinking in regards to coin magic and routining. I especially liked the opening coin routine. Kainoa makes several valid and eye opening points. The sleights are surprisingly easy to learn. I was expecting a lot of real knuckle busting coin work from Kainoa but he uses stuff you can actually do in the "real" world of performing. I really enjoyed the lecture and the magic was top notch. At around 3 and 1/2 hours there is plenty to learn. He has a great book if your interested in the use of the "Edge Grip". It's called "Coins On Edge". He teaches his version of the hanging coins and I was in heaven. That is one of my all time favorite coin effects. Kainoa is a lot of fun and he teaches everything very well. You won't be disappointed if you purchase this.

I have a decent collection of coin magic DVDs and if I was to rate them on the quality of the learning experience I think some would stand out; those presented by good teachers. I’m thinking of magicians like David Roth and Eric Jones who are able to break moves down into simple steps, communicate the important details and leave you with confidence that you can do the routines yourself. Kainoa is a professional teacher and he’s similarly very good at explaining his moves and routines. I have a couple of his books and it’s great to see the material come to life. There’s a huge amount of good and practical coin magic in this lecture and much useful discussion about how to perform it well. Although I’ve seen him live in the UK I’m very pleased to have this have a download that I can refer to again. At over 3 hours I think it is great value for money. I skipped over the card magic section which is about 30 minutes so can’t comment on that.
This is the must for CoinMan!. Report this review

I love his act,technic,idea and personality.
He hold a coin with very light touch even hiding extra coins.
I look again and again his slow motion type coin vanish.
This is the Best slow motion coin vanish I have ever seen.
His act does not require jacket,And produce many coins.
His act can perform with standing.This is the good point.
Thank you for both Kainoa and Penguin.
And please see and follow my photo if you like.

Excellent video for Coin Magicians Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 2nd, 2013
Beautiful lecture on coin magic (with a hint of card) that shows how amazing coin magic can be. You will see the master at work with his amazing coin roll productions, to his infamous Hanging Pendulum Coins all taught in great detail. The best part about it was his patter and showmanship. He has a great personality that caters towards the audience and felt like himself rather then presenting himself as a "magician".
I would highly recommend this lecture if you have any hints of learning coin magic, but remember this isn't beginner stuff. I would imagine you know the basic slights and handling of coins before venturing forward. I would still purchase even if you are a beginner to see how flawless coin magic can get.
Both thumps up Report this review

Kainoa taught excellent stuff regarding coin magic. In addition, I think his false shuffle which he applied to a classic triumpf effect was quite practical (= I will use it!)
Imperative studies Report this review

The highest respect for Kainoa`s artistry
a true creative force on the contemporary
Magic scene all of his material along with Eric Jones,Miguel Angel Gea is an imperative must studies on the art of Coin prestidigitation!unless your the Amazing Jonathan,David Williamson,orJay Sankey, Mr Harbottle & Gea ,hopefully realise their atrocious silly attempts at humour is a repulsive annoyance & cruelty to audiences of any size!
Other than then that these Coin men are true miracle workers
Of this era!Get eveything you can get your hands of these Magi
Including Master David Roth & The coin material of Jay Sankey one of the top ten in Coin Manipulation
Brilliant lecturer & truly original Report this review

If you have any interest in coin magic and live lectures, get this lecture.
Kainoa is an excellent teacher and he manages to include something for every skill set in here. The bulk of the material is ungaffed coin work, but he throws in 2 or 3 routines with a simple gaff that most coin folks already have. His work on edge grip and mutobe palm is really clever and gives his routines this amazing fluidity and simplicity thats really hard to replicate by other methods.
Just in case you get bored, he throws in some very workable card stuff that I could perform after just a couple days of practice.
In addition he gives a few nuggets of wisdom on the theory of coin magic and what makes it more magical and also challenging than cards, as well as some goo thoughts on how to think about your performing persona.
Overall a great 3 hours that's had a lot of value to me as reference material any time I'm thinking about coin sleights.
