The Classic Force has long been considered the fairest and smoothest way of influencing a spectator to unknowingly pick the card YOU want. In this 60-minute action-packed tape, Paul Green breaks down the Classic Force step-by-step, and demonstrates how to make it the most powerful and versatile weapon in your arsenal.

Paul reveals sure-fire techniques for making the Classic Force 100 reliable - even in the most difficult and demanding situations.

You'll learn Paul's:

  • Perfect timing
  • Precision placement
  • Spread variations
  • Hand-to-hand management
  • Fail-safe outs
  • And finally, a MUST SEE method for manipulating the uncooperative spectator.

Shot outside the polite confines of a studio setting, Paul Green takes you deep in the trenches to completely destroy a real-world audience. Included is a tour de force of 6 devastating routines from Paul's professional repertoire. In a nutshell, he's a lean, Green forcing machine!

Simple; Well explained. Report this review

This is one of the best videos I've seen. The shots CLEARY show what is happening. No shaky camera work as is often the case. No attitude, as is also often the case. Paul actually shows real-life examples which include how to deal with un-cooperative spectators. This is rare. Overall, this is a great video. I'd recommend it to folks never before exposed to the classic force. I'm going to order all of his other videos :)

Great Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 28th, 2004
This is a great DVD and gives a real in-depth look at the classic force. Paul also covers a few other card techniques, like the top palm. He reviews the technique and talks about everything that is possible to happen with the Classic Force, and how to get out of it. Paul is a great teacher, and the camera angles are perfect on everything except for one technique. This is a must have for every card magician, weather you think you know the Classic Force well enough or not. The extra routines Paul includes are good, but they are not quite my style. They are not very comical, but can be made comical.

I'll give a quick overview:(out of 10)
Movie Quality-10
Camera Angles-9.5
Paul's Routines-8

Just a quick note, if you are new to the Classic Force, this will take time to practice and understand. It's a basic concept, but you will need to practice many many times on friends and family.

Hope this helped make you buy this product.

The best source to learn Report this review

Paul Green is well known for his mastery of the classic force. This DVD is the best place to learn. Paul teaches all the nuances so that you can go out and be confident with this sleight.

Somewhat pricey but a solid resource Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 11th, 2013
Generally clear instructions on how to perform the classic force, in terms of spread speed, movement of body and hands, psychology. However, I was surprised that Paul Green did not speak more about positioning of the force card (eg little finger position, how much of the card should be exposed, etc).
I also began to find his performing style grating and smug. Shame, because he clearly has good technical skills and some highly effective tricks.

I have many forces I have mastered over the years, but I have never been comfortable attempting the Classic Force until now. Paul's presentation and explanation has changed that for me. Not only does he take the time to show several different possibilities of situations that you will run into preforming it, he also explains outs if the spectator fails to pick the forced card. Additionally, Paul demonstrates, several routines using the classic force in tricks I already perform, but he has added some nice touches and ideas that I now include in my performances. I have been practicing this force even when I don't need to force a card, just to test myself and build my confidence. Paul's idea not mine, but it works. I've only been doing the classic force for a couple weeks now and I'm comfortable attempting to do it. Well worth the money - Buy it

Most Helpful- great detail Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 29th, 2013
When I first saw this video I was unsure about how to use the classic force, and this was the video that helped me not only to do it well, but to understand it deeply, or understand the spectator's actions, in relationship to the classic force, very deeply.

I now know exactly how to use it confidently, and I use it all the time, thanks to this video.

Use the Force Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 9th, 2010
Paul Green does an excellent job teaching the Classic Force step-by-step. He goes over every subtlety and nuance, from how to handle the difficult spectators to what to do if you miss (or will miss). If you think you know how to do the Classic Force but haven't seen this video then think again. This is a valuable resource and a must for all card workers.

Paul also teaches some tricks. Honestly they aren't that good, but you aren't getting this for the tricks you are getting it to learn to use the Force

A must know force Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I never had so much fun forcing cards as with the classic force. I always use the riffle force or hindu shuffle force, but the classic force as taught by Paul is so clean. I am getting the hang of it and so far Im at %100 with the force. I know I need to grow in confidence, but in time it will come.
This DVD also comes with great routines which uses the classic force. But if you don't want to learn the classic for there are great routines without the use of it.

A must have for your magic library.
