  • Return of the Angels

    Ichiro Araki demonstrates how to disperse and regroup four aces throughout a partial deck with a level of stealth that is beyond detection. By the end, your four aces will have found their way back to their starting positions seemingly instantaneously.

  • Twisting Aces Plus

    In just five minutes, Araki will teach you how to simultaneously hide and reveal your deck's four aces repeatedly before ultimately producing a baffling color change. You'll be able to impress any audience with what seems to be just a few simple twists and turns of the cards.

  • A Hors d'Oeuvre

    Learn how to magically transform your aces into kings and back again right before your audience's very eyes with A Hors d'Oeuvre. Due to the use of seemingly basic and minimal movements, this trick is beyond detection and relies on your ability to deliver a smooth execution.

  • Araki-Hofzinser Aces

    Araki demonstrates his version of the Hofzinser Aces Problem, a classic card problem created by Jack Avis in the 1950s. The four aces will help you locate your spectator's chosen card that has been seemingly lost within the deck. But, has it really?

  • Acrobatic

    For a beautiful production of any four of a kind, Ichiro demonstrates how to deliver a perfectly devious trick that'll let your audience believe they see all. As usual though, there is more going on just beneath the surface.

  • Jewelry Force

    Araki's Jewelry Force will make your audience truly believe in magic as they repeatedly pick the ace of spades out of the deck, even as the card count dwindles.

    Is it really magic or the work of some other more tangible force?

  • Araki Pass

    It's essential that every performer has some version of the pass within their arsenal. It is a practical trick that requires years of practice. Learning to control your deck with subtlety and ease will prove to be a truly crucial element in your card dealing career.

  • Araki-Erdnase Change

    Araki performs and provides a walk-through of the classic color change effect, the Erdnase Change. After this short tutorial you'll be able to change the color of any card in your deck with nothing more than a mere wave of the hand.

  • Chon's Invisible Pass

    Araki introduces a pass that can be completed so instantaneously that is almost completely imperceptible to to the untrained eye. This version, that begins very similarly to the Herrmann Pass, is much more quiet and swift than the original.

    Araki's modifications have made this pass even more ...

  • Side Steal

    Araki presents his version of the Side Steal, another classic sleight that exhibits a dealer's total control over their deck by commanding the spectator's card to the top of the deck every single time.

  • MA-Double Lift

    Fool audiences with this double lift. As they watch their card be placed into the middle of the deck, they won't know if they can trust their eyes as their card appears to actually be at the top of the deck every single time.

    Araki demonstrates another fundamental and essential effect that al...

  • Electric Change

    Araki demonstrates a change that is so quick, it's basically electric. Shock your audience with the speed in which you can control any card to the top of your deck with nothing, but a swift wave of your hand.

  • Electric Change v.2

    Araki provides a second version of the Electric Change that allows for increased audience engagement and interaction. They'll be shocked by where their card turns up in the end.

  • Shadow Change

    Araki introduces a highly visual variation of the Erdnase Change called the Shadow Change.

    By maintaining almost constant spread fingers, this trick appears to allow for zero cover. This leaves your audience with the belief that you couldn't possibly be hiding anything.
