"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.

MJM is the most consistant magic company in the business and that is very important to me. I want to know that Im getting the same service every time...

Good prices, reward points, fast shipping, large inventory, and amazingly conscientious customer service--MJM has become my first choice for magic.

The Best Gets Better

The best prices, the best promotions and the best service I have found. And it got even better once I became a return customer.

Better magic dealer of the web ! ! ! !

I highly recommend buying from this website! Jeff and his team are the most professional and smartest magic dealers I ever bought from . Plus:...

Awesome Customer Service!

When I told Jeff that I needed red card gimmicks instead of blue, he took the time to contact his supplier to check the entire inventory for that...
