"Takumi has surpassed me"
- Lennart Green, World Champion Close-up/Card magician
Prepare to learn card magic like you have never imagined!
Really! You will swear that these are camera tricks!
You might know Takumi Takahashi as a student of the legendary Lennart Green.
However, Takumi has created his own unique style of magic that is super visual. He will reveal his amazing methods in this exclusive tutorial! For the first time ever, Takumi teaches you refined routines that come from his own personal repertoire!!
Don't expect to master these techniques in 30 minutes. These effects WILL require practice. But it will be so worth it!
Learn Lennart Green's Top Shot production from his master class student!
The spectator selects a card, which is inserted back into the deck. The magician finds it by literally shooting it out of the deck! Looks incredible and impossible!! WOW!
Twelve cards are taken from the deck and mixed. The spectator chooses one card and it turns out to be the only red card -- all of the other cards are black! But wait! What if she had chosen a black card instead? With a black card on the table, you gather the rest and immediately show that she has the only black card and that, now, all the cards in your hand are red! You gather them up again and show that they are now an even spread of alternating black and red cards! Finally, you turn them face up and show that when you deal a face up red card onto the black pile, it automatically changes to black as well. A miracle!
The ultimate one-handed card production from the middle of the deck! This looks unbelievable!
The four Aces are cleanly and fairly placed into four different parts of the deck as the magician deals through the cards. The magician stops when there are only four cards left in his hand... they are the four Aces! AND, the deck is spread to discover that the originally placed four Aces are gone!
Produce the four Aces out of thin air!
A fabulous and FAST production that looks so magical, your spectators will gasp in amazement!
Takumi's stunning take on the Triumph plot. The deck is shuffled, and a random card is chosen and placed back into the deck. It is then shuffled with half the cards face up, and half the cards face down. Just like magic, the cards now all turn face down except for the one chosen card! But there is more... now the entire deck is separated into red and black cards even though they were shuffled at the beginning!
A chosen card appears on your arm as a tattoo!
Show all the cards to be different, and shuffle the deck. Your spectator cuts the deck anywhere they'd like, and the card they cut to is tabled. Show your arm to be clean. With some magical flourishes, show your arm again, this time tattooed with the name of a card! Turn over the spectator's card - it matches your arm's tattoo perfectly!
An impossible effect where a card is freely chosen and lost in the deck. The black King acts as the Blood Hound dog and sniffs its way through the deck to find the spectator's chosen card!
This really is amazing, as piles of cards gradually diminish until there are only two cards left - the Blood Hound card and the spectator's selection. Fun to do!
Your spectator selects a card, and it is inserted into the deck FACE DOWN. With just a wave, her card turns FACE UP. With another wave, the three matching cards turn face up as well!
