Live lecture by Kainoa Harbottle (7.95)

You might remember his strange name from Palms of Steel or the New York Coin Magic Symposiums, seen him online at Reel Magic Magazine, or read his column in the pages of Genii. No matter how you know Kainoa Harbottle's material, you also know he brings with him an engaging personality, an off-beat sense of humor, and some of the cleanest coin magic you will ever see.

Originally hailing from Honolulu, Hawaii, Kainoa grew up "in the trenches," performing close-up magic in the hotels of Waikiki and the outer islands. He eventually moved to Los Angeles, where he was a Junior Member at the Magic Castle, and then headed further east, teaching for over a decade in the University of Delaware's English and Theater Departments while finishing a dissertation on (surprise, surprise) magic in the nineteenth century. A scholar of magic's history and an innovator of one of its most challenging genres, Kainoa's thinking is considered revolutionary by many of his contemporaries, and he enjoys surprising other magicians by making the most difficult material look effortless. This is what you'll be learning:

Too Many Coins: In "Too Many Coins," you will see coin magic performed and taught in ways you've never seen before. First, Kainoa performs a literally no-holds-barred routine of doom. Coins go across, change places, even as he tries to make things easier on the audience by getting rid of more and more of the coins. Finally, the coins suddenly all return... or don't because the ending is up to you. This routine is the center point of Kainoa's lecture because as he explains each sequence, he discusses a particular technique. Then, each of those techniques lead to a discussion of additional effects: from an extremely clean copper/silver transposition, to an easy-to-do Miser's Dream, to an impossible version of Two in the Hand, One in the Pocket. But the most important lesson is how to suture your effects together to create a routine that allows you to accomplish what you need to for your audiences.

Rolling Stone: Here, Kainoa discusses doing coin magic in the trenches, sharing a tablehopping routine he has performed for years. Coins surprisingly appear on the spectator's table not just once but twice, transforming the audience's space into one of magic. Additionally, Kainoa teaches three different techniques to getting into Edge Grip, each of which are designed to help you vanish not just one but multiple coins.
  • Key Moves: Steeplechase Discrepancy and Edge Grip
  • Coins appearing on the table
  • Three different techniques to get into Edge Grip
Ghosts and Vamps: Welcome to the realm of Goth Magic... or just vampire-themed card tricks. This reworking of Guy Hollingworth's "Voodoo Card" leaves you with a full deck of cards and your audience with a fun souvenir. More importantly, the structure of this routine gives you the opportunity to be as creative as possible.

Further Than Three Different Ways: This reworking of Michael Skinner's "Three Different Ways" takes a strong, fairly impromptu trick and turns it into a showpiece. Three cards are selected in three different ways, and after Kainoa reads one spectator's mind in a way that only he would, the rest of the selections are found in a variety of ways, and the rest of the deck turns into Jokers.

The Miser's Goblet Performance and Explanation: This is one of Kainoa's signature effects: as he tells the story of the first magician he ever saw, a seemingly endless amount of coins roll down his fingers into a brass goblet. When the last coin seems to have vanished, it returns while bringing even more coins to his fingertips. Learn the ideas and structure behind this effect, and, if you're brave enough, give it a try.
  • Key Moves: Steeplechase Discrepancy and Palming Lots of Coins

    Note: The lecture will be aired on April 3rd


Customer reviews for At The Table Live Lecture Kainoa Harbottle



I really enjoyed this lecture by kainoa harbottle, who is very talented with coins easily one of the best in the world. The lecture was jam packed with magic and I’m very impressed with it. Nice touches added in on how to manage the audience when you are putting coins in their hands. The four coins across routine is awesome in my opinion, very magical looking, glad he shared this I’m going to work on it. Brilliant thinking went into these routines.



Just loved this live lecture. That Goblet Performance is just amazing. I totally recommend this one if you're a fan of coin magic. Great content in here.



What can I say? This is worth watching for two of his routines, however, there is much, much more.
If you want to see a world class coin worker in action and learn some valuable tips to improve your own coin magic, get this...Now!





Great DVD. Love kainoa's work. Technically demanding as always in places but as always a joy to watch the man perform and great that he shares so much knowledge. Kainoa always brings top work to the table. This DVD will not disappoint anyone who loves coin magic. Excellent.



I'm a huge fan of Kainoa's work, so maybe I'm a bit biased, but this lecture met my expectations for sure. For the most part, this is not easy material, but there's still some lessons in here that you can take, even if you're if you're just starting out. But be warned, be prepared to work.



This was an amazing lecture I would highly recommend it. Anything Kainoa does on video really is a must watch for me.



A lot of good techniques to learn. If you want to learn coin magic this is one of the best
videos to get. He explains everything fairly well. Worth the price if you want to do real coin magic



good material, well performed and teached.
