Takumi Takahashi - the "Green" Magic

Takumi Takahashi's magic on "The Amazing Magicians" has shocked thousands of audience with his impressive sleight of hands. He, however, has commented his performance as 'awful' and I believe that he did appear somewhat nervous on stage. You'll understand why if you watch the clip below, on his 'usual level' of performance, and his signature "laser deal":

This is card magic at its finest and perfection. As his teacher, the legendary Lennart Green has given him the highest compliment, "Takumi has surpassed me."

Will Tsai the Visualist

I think many of you would have watched Will Tsai's performance on AGT (America's Got Talent) last year. His sensational act has successfully attracted millions of views and also triggered off some heated discussion among magicians' societies, which has been quite controversial since then. Too unreal or unbelievable? I shall not reveal any of the secrets here, but the answer actually lie in his title - he calls himself a "Visualist" for a reason! Anyway, it is still fascinating to watch it as an entertainment ;)

Knowledge vs Experience

This is a great image. What I see in it is - the 'dots' can be anything we learn from textbooks, but the skill of connecting all of them is best learned from Ward Rounds and apprenticeship under our mentors, which the experience and wisdom is irreplaceable.
