Learn Shin Lim card tricks.
Shin Lim teaches Spring Card trick
The first trick Shin Lim teaches in the new video is called a “spring card”. It is a flourishing that involves letting the cards fall in one hand and catching them with the other.

Shin shows the necessary finger positions to make sure that the magicians on the left know that they must reflect everything he does. “This can take a lot of practice and a lot of strength,” Shin advises, acknowledging that at first your hand may not be strong enough.
The magician added that he should not try to take the cards too far when he started. Instead, just focus on getting the cards “out of your thumb.” He shared: “Don’t be discouraged, just keep going.”
How to Make the First Shine Learned Trick |
Shin continued to teach “scroll force,” which he says is the first card trick he learned. It involves predicting the exact card someone will pick from the deck, using some shaking hand.

The magician asks someone to tell you which card on the deck to stop. The trick is to move the preset card over the top of the deck, causing the person to think it was randomly chosen. You will also need a duplicate card to place it in your pocket.
Shin encourages aspiring musicians to “practice as much as possible” in front of family and friends. Do you think you will try one of these tricks? Let us know in the comments.
