Fresh off winning FISM, Shoot Ogawa presents an incredible new 2.5-hour lecture filled with the tricks and insights that helped him reach the top of his field.

On the Sunday morning after Magifest 2023, just about 12 hours after he floored the entire audience at the Gala show with his FISM act, Shoot Ogawa welcomed a small group of magicians for an incredible one-of-a-kind workshop. It was recorded in crystal-clear quality and is now available to you!

“Shoot Ogawa: Close-Up Miracles” is your rare opportunity to learn from a master of his craft. Filled with captivating tricks, elegant sleight of hand, and invaluable theory, there is something for everyone in this download. Most importantly, Shoot understands the finer details. His routines, drills, and tips will help you become a better overall magician.

Shoot is widely considered to be one of the most skilled coin magicians in the world, and that is on full display in this workshop. He goes deep into detail on the finer points needed to perform truly elegant sleight of hand. This includes an astounding approach to purse frame routines and invaluable advice on perfecting your angles to eliminate flashing. His deep dive into how magicians can perform more natural and realistic sleight of hand is worth its weight in gold.

As Shoot is a master card magician too, there is a ton of amazing card magic as well. You’ll love his unique take on the Ambitious Card that adds in a Cards to Pocket element and the stunning Cards Across. He even shares his ingenious thoughts on memorized deck, including a sneaky way to give yourself a safety net when performing.

There’s also a mini-session on the Ninja rings (close-up linking rings) and Shoot even shares some of the most exciting parts from his FISM act. The real value of the latter though is his discussion on the art of designing routines. You’ll find yourself revisiting this advice often.

“Close-Up Miracles” is as close to a private lesson from Shoot Ogawa as you can get. It’s available exclusively at Vanishing Inc. and is an unmissable chance to spend 2.5 hours with one of the greatest magicians of our time. Download today!

Excellent teaching. Ideas I had never considered. The 'Angles Management' section is gold. I've had the pleasure and privilege of working with Shoot at The Magical Mystery Show when it was on Maui, and also at the current location in Waikiki, and I can tell you, he is incredibly open and giving, as you can see in this video. All the infinitesimal refinements that I might stumble upon through ridiculous repetition...'So, I do like this...I am lining up my finger from my left eye to their left eyes...' Simple, brilliant, perhaps intuitive but perfectly explicated herein, a lightbulb suddenly illuminating a corner of the room that I didn't even know was dark. Thank you, Shoot, JT, Kekoa, and of course VI for making this available.



Five stars are not enough stars for this lecture. I am an old guy who still loves magic. I love learning from experts. The information provided is invaluable. Don't focus upon the technique or mechanics. Focus upon the thinking that goes into his practice and how he structures a routine. Unless you understand and apply his thinking, your magic will never go beyond being average. It is very hard to find this information in books though there are a few books that teach this well. This lecture is extremely practical for the serious magician.







OK. I must say that shoot ogawa is a real master of magic. he is really really good.



Very nice principles and honed techniques from years of performance.





Very good purchase. Shoot takes the time to answer many questions and goes into in-depht details. His purse routine explanations are very clear. There is also a 2nd section with 7 bonus tricks. Weather you are a beginner or a level 69 warlock, there is golden material for everyone in this purchase. Don't miss out! Shoot is not only a world champion but one of the most down to earth people out there and his very humble in his teaching. Definitelywould recommend to anyone wondering if this purchase is worth it or not.



Shoot Ogawa is not only a master magician but also a really great teacher. This is what I consider a true magic lecture in that he was not selling tricks he demonstrated but just taught on principles that are so important to making your magic much better. I learned so much about angle management, audience management, and how to practice. It was also interesting to hear how he developed some of his own sleights and his own routines. Shoot also spent a lot of time talking and demonstrating how he adjusts his magic to suit both the size of the audience and the size of the venue he is performing in. Extremely informative lecture.

Thank you for making this available to us. I wanted to go to Magi-Fest to be in this but wasn't able to. Now I get to learn from this. Thank you again.





There is a lot of great material here. Shoot is one of the best if not the best teachers in magic. I always turn to shoots material when I'm looking for something new to add to my close up sets. You wont regret getting this thats for sure.

What an amazing bundle! The workshop is full of interesting ideas, but the most valuable part is definitely the theory behind them. The hints on linking rings are awesome!
About the 7 bonus card tricks, most magicians probably know most of them, but it might be the kind of trick that you just forget about them, but they can be really strong for lay audience, and Shoot also gives important tips for all of them, that can be applied to other routines.



Man alive! This lecture is amazing. So much to take in. So much to practice. And all of it so well explained. I think this might be my favourite lecture of 2023 so far and it's going to be hard to top. The first 30 minute section on the French drop was startlingly good and from that point I knew the rest wouldn't be disappointing.
Shoot's tips on the rings were also brilliant and I feel I can finally start getting to grips with them.
In conclusion, highly recommended.

This is an excellent workshop. Not about tricks... about theory. About how to personalize what you do. And about how to make your movements more natural and more deceptive. This is the kind of workshop that can help every magician improve their performance.



Good lessons!!! Shoot did an Excellent job on description and break downs on everything he talked about. Very patient in explaining in detail each move. Great performer and great teacher! Video was well worth the price! The great part is that you can play it over and over again if you missed something the first or second time. Good Value! Worth the price!
Good Job Vanishing!!!
