Fist of Fury:
In the summer of 2002, three masters of Coin-Fu met at a secluded monastery (strangely resembling the site of the IBM convention) for the sole purpose of bashing their audiences senseless.
Their weapon of choice? Coins.. . at close range.
In the wee hours of the morning, video cameras captured the most dramatic moments of what westerners call a “session” and escaped alive with the only known footage of these bizarre and mysterious rituals.
From master Kam:
Beijing Coins Across – Three silver coins shimmer into mirage-like existence, dance from hand to hand, then suddenly transform into ancient brass Chinese coins. They change singly back to silver, and visibly flash back to brass. This opening attack from Curtis Kam’s formal parlor show is the showpiece for his signature “Fingertip Wildcoin” sequence.
Coercive Purse – Cited by Tommy Wonder for its construction, this routine uses psychological warfare to beat skeptics into submission. Imagine the copper/silver transposition warped through a purse frame, by way of a Jedi mind trick. The final stroke of oriental deviousness is the production of a coin larger than the purse frame, from the purse frame.
The Goblet – Six coins transpose, transform and transport in, over, and around a stemmed metal goblet as Kam’s pioneering techniques turn this under-used prop into a dangerous weapon. The Goblet allows the elements of Beijing Coins Across to be re-sequenced for greater killing efficiency.
Tiananmen Square – For his final blow, Kam added a coin purse to Fingertip Wildcoin, punishing the audience with a standing handling of Roth’s classic Purse and Glass that goes way off the deep end, ending with 13 Chinese coins covering the tabletop in a dazzling display of mysterious metals.
East met West as 2 masters of the unusual stepped upto the mats. Kainoa Harbottle met Kam’s attack with a production sequence not for the queasy – ‘Repeat Coins from Nostril.’ Stunningly grotesque, it uses parts of your face not normally involved in western presentations.
Into the Abyss:
The three routines in INTO THE ABYSS all share the same goal. They make audiences think that you can really read their minds. Not on stage, not far away, but up close and personal with people that you are meeting for the first time. No pre-show and no stooges, just the real deal. These routines are easy to learn and require virtually no sleight of hand.
You will not find any boring, drawn-out procedures or outdated routines on this DVD. INTO THE ABYSS contains direct, in-your-face powerhouses that audiences will REMEMBER for a very long time to come. These routines have evolved over years of professional performance and Oz teaches them to you step-by-step so you are able to perform them with confidence.
Whats in a Name?
Your spectators will experience you performing the impossible: you will be able to name the person they are thinking of and disclose details about that person that you could not possibly know. This has become Ozs signature effect in his strolling repertoire. WARNING: Perform this at your own risk! Some spectators will truly believe that you are psychic.
Listen to my Words
Imagine approaching a group for the first time and having a person think of someone important from her past. Now picture the look on her face when you take a tape recorder out of your pocket and everyone hears the message you previously recorded that includes the name of the person that she is thinking of.
Its time to get even more personal and completely blow them away. You hand a fully stapled and sealed prediction to a spectator who, upon tearing it open, finds a folded business card. Written on it are all the details of a vacation that she went on including the name of a person she is thinking of from that trip. This is close-up mentalism with a true emotional hook.
