Before we go on with more posts on card tricks, lets take a step back and brush up on one of the basic card tricks called the Double Lift. A lot of the tricks involve this technique and so it is important for us to learn it well.

Nice! There are many ways to do double lift.. I personally like the double push-off style (the one that david blaine uses). It might not look natural but no one would think that you could actually pick up two card that way. Anyway, it depends on one's style. If you are comfortable with it then it's okay. For example, I've never seen Cyril do double push-off, instead he uses the classic way by striking two cards as one from the corner of the deck yet he is awesome!
