Proudly Funded With Kickstarter

After a few years of creating free content for the magic community I decided I wanted to create a full length premium product for dedicated students who want to invest in their magic and take it to the next level. I took the project idea to Kickstarter to see if I would get support from my students, and the answer was a resounding YES! This project was completely funded in just a few hours after launching the campaign and it ended up reaching 1300% of its funding goal! You can see the Kickstarter campaign here:

Over 4.5 Hours of In-Depth Video Instruction

The course consists of over 70 bite sized lesson modules. I film in high definition with an over-the-shoulder angle so that you can clearly see what I'm teaching from your own perspective. Follow along with deck in hand as I break down various moves and tricks. I teach the material with depth and clarity and aim to equip students with the tools needed to create memorable magic.

"Hi Asad - I'm a serious magic hobbyist (and by day a director/writer/actor of movies and TV shows) and I've scoured many sources and your style of teaching is by far my favorite ... I'm wanting to put some time (and money) into taking my skills to the next level, and I want you to be my teacher!" - David Wain

"I'm a 44 year old family doctor who has always loved sleight of hand but have never had the time to invest in learning…only watching. Now I'm learning. It's a great and inexpensive hobby and it's even become a great way to spend time with my 4 children. Of all the sources I've used so far, I've enjoyed yours the most. Concise yet thorough. Keep up the great work. I really appreciate your help." - Mike

"I am such a huge fan of your content because it is so much different than every other teacher I've seen online. I've been doing card magic for about 6 or 7 years now and I felt like I hit a wall in my progression. I'm in college so I don't have a lot of time to study techniques shown in a book. Your videos were so instrumental in progressing my skills and expanding my arsenal in an extremely speedy fashion. Your explanations are also very clear and concise and I love you always focus on the nitty gritty, considering that's where a lot of card instructors lack in their explanations." - Chris Wheatley
