Linking Rings

Once called The Chinese Linking Rings, this magic trick is widely performed and is a classic of close-up magic and stage magic. Seemingly solid rings appear to penetrate each other, create chains and other patterns before being magically unlinked by the magician. Ching Ling Foo popularised this effect around 1900. It’s a classic for a reason.



Close-up Linking Rings

Popularized by Shoot Ogawa, but created by his teacher Masahiro Yanagida, the close-up version of Linking Rings is typically known as "Ninja Rings." It is performed by many professional magicians and is perhaps the way that Linking Rings are now most often performed.
