Tenkai was also given the privilege of being named as a creator of a palm that hides a coin in the back of your hand. This palm is very clever and can be used when using coins to perform magic.

Below is a great display of cunning and magic when two coins are shown, one in each hand. Then unbelievably, one coin has jumped across the palms and joined the other coin making one hand produce two coins leaving the other hand empty.  The secret is to push the coin behind your fingers and pinch the coin between the ring finger and the pinky finger (the small finger for those who do not know what the pinky is... time to learn now in a funny way )
