Shoot Ogawa is a magician from Tokyo, Japan who has been interested in magic from the age of 10.[1] Ogawa has been featured on television in Japan and is a corporate entertainer.


Some of his most renowned tricks include the Ninja Rings and the Muscle Pass which he introduced to American magicians and helped make famous. In Feb 2008, he introduced his "Laws of Attraction" illusion to the Blackpool Magic Convention to an exclusive audience of professional magicians.

Ogawa was named the 2008 Parlour Magician of the Year by the Academy of Magical Arts. Previously, he was awarded Closeup Magician of the Year in 2003 and 2006, which is even more remarkable considering 2003 was his first year in America, and Ogawa spoke very little English. Ogawa also won 1st place at the close-up competition in the MacMillan International Convention in 2002.

He has been featured on the cover of the Magic Magazine March 2003 issue. He has also appeared on "After Dark At The Magic Castle."[2]
