"I started performing 'Ambitious Card' over 25 years ago and since then I've created many fresh handlings and approaches. Every single one of them is included on this project. I've held back absolutely nothing."
-Jay Sankey

EXTREMELY AMBITIOUS is exactly that, an extremely ambitious collection of handlings, techniques, ideas and approaches all created with an eye towards taking the classic Ambitious Card effect to an exciting new level. Jay shares many of these for the VERY FIRST TIME!

This breakthrough project is divided into four parts: Essential Sleights, Openers, Middlers and Closers.

In the "Essential Sleights" section you will learn ALL THE SLEIGHTS you need to know. As a result, the DVD is a complete and comprehensive mini-course in the Ambitious Card! Perfect for beginners!

During 'Openers' Jay teaches you the secrets behind some of his favorite ways to begin the effect. 'Middlers' has Jay sharing many exciting techniques to have the selected card rise to the top. And 'Closers' includes all of Jay's favorite ways to end the classic effect with a hard-hitting and memorable BANG!

Jay also discusses what it is about the classic Ambitious Card effect that makes it so remarkably popular.

As a recognized master of the Classic Pass, Jay also teaches in rare detail The Classic Pass, Riffle Pass, Turnover Pass, Spread Pass, Jay's own Sleeves Up Pass, and the little-known Jiggle Pass.

EXTREMELY AMBITIOUS features original material for a wide range of skill levels from complete beginner to seasoned professional. It's the ideal reference for any serious student of card magic.

Great Service!

I have placed four orders with MJM. Each has shipped within a day and arrived well packaged and in perfect condition. I would recommend them to...


What can say about MJM Magic? Everything is just excellent! I found the RAVEN at a better price on another site and they gave it to me for that...

Once again, Super service.

I had a question that Jeff was able to help me with. His suggestions were varied and useful and will help me very soon. Thanks for going the extra...

Fantastic Customer Service

You'll be hard-pressed to find another site that is so dedicated to customer satisfaction as is MJM Magic. The staff at MJM Magic go out of their way...

This Place is Great!

I've ordered many times from MJM and every time I've gotten my order in exactly 5 days... And thats truly magic because I'm stationed in Iraq....
