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.
