It includes six unique magical effects performed by the master Japanese magician, Tenkai. Tenkai, also known as Tenkai Ishida, was a legendary Japanese magician who made significant contributions to the art of sleight of hand and close-up magic during the early 20th century. Born in 1889, Tenkai is best known for his mastery of the “Tenkai Palm,” a technique that allows a magician to secretly conceal and produce objects with remarkable dexterity. His innovative work greatly influenced future generations of magicians and continues to be studied and admired by magic enthusiasts worldwide.
