David Hooper has just launched his work on how to do the Classic Force, and it’s one of the most highly recommended Tuition DVD’s we have seen is a very long time.
Take a look:
Force of Will is Davids own take on the force he developed because he found it difficult to learn the traditional Classic force. Over the years, working on a stall selling magic tricks, he developed and perfected the technique to what it is today.
I’ve not met David yet, but would like too. He comes across as genuine, passionate about magic, and with a no thrills, down to earth approach about what is important in magic. That comes across in his teaching which is honest and refreshing. The tuition feels like learning from someone who has developed a strong technique ‘in the trenches’ over time, doing this in his working ‘pitch’ It’s not come from a magic product development workshop etc..
I’ve been using a traditional classic force for many years, so didn’t think I would find much of value here. I was wrong.. To give you just one example, there’s one little technique used in the seconds after the spectator picks a card, that made myself and Ben Williams in the shop look at each other and say ‘genius!” at the same time. Even if you are happy with your own force, I bet you take that little tip on board and use it in your own force. For the price, that tuition is worth it alone.
For total beginners. This is a lovely place to pick up a style of Classic force to use. He also teaches a way to practice the technique and build up confidence and pace etc.
