Brad Christian: Why run if you’re not being chased?

December 28th, 2010 | Joe Hadsall | Filed Under General


So, did you get the e-mail from Brad? If you’re on our mailing list, then right before Christmas you should have received a great letter from him. Attached was this video from an as-yet-unreleased project, where he talks about one of the most important things you should practice with your magic. Enjoy.

  2. We all have ‘tells’ when doing a move. Not sure if Brad knows but he tilts his head to his left when palming, this is also evident in ‘Ninja 2 – Ambitious card routine’

  3. thanks brad, ill keep that in mind all the time :)

  4. I really enjoyed this video. One of the most important aspects of magic yet overlooked by many. I used to be one of those people that cared more about the move than the psychology/presentation. Then I realized it’s not the trick that the spectator remembers but that feeling.

  5. A much-needed pep talk. Thanks Brad!

  6. did any1 else cut through ice with hot steel after seeing this video?

  7. Thanks Brad, Yes, yes, don’t run when there’s no one chasing you. This really hits like a Zen stick! Most teaching magicians will just tell you how to perform the moves, the technicalities…they don’t post pep talks like these. Much appreciated.
