Mixing his love of mentalism with his hypnotism skills, together with Kev Sheldrake he has created a performance style and technique capable of producing some of the most mind-blowing mental effects.

On this Four-disc set you will learn, in detail, Anthony’s approach to impromptu hypnosis – no prior knowledge is required – the first part of this set will guide you through everything you need to know in order to become the hypnotist. The second part takes the format of a discussion forum where Anthony is joined by mad genius, Kev Sheldrake and fellow hypnotist and magician Amit Badiani. In this section you will get a detailed look at some of the principles and applications of the techniques taught to magic and mentalism performances.

Hypno forces and hypno peeks are examples of the covert pre-show techniques that are available to a hypnotising mentalist. The Reverse Mind Reading effect takes these concepts a step further, producing an unlimited ability to read a mind with the minimum of hypnotic pre-show work.

Alakazam Team Note:

We spent a few minutes chatting to our good friend Amit Badiani about hypnosis and what you can expect to learn from The Manchurian Approach DVD project and he would like to share this message:

"Wow what can I say guys, as you read this message you are very nearly the proud owners of The Manchurian Approach DVD. Before I continue I would like to personally thank a few people, Anthony himself for letting me be apart of the DVD project and all the courses that he runs and also Kev Sheldrake, Russ Stevens from RSVP Magic who is a fantastic person and great fun to be around with, and last but not least Chris Harding, Peter Nardi, Mark Gray and everyone else from Alakazam

What a fantastic Journey it has been, we had so much fun filming for the DVD, some of it which you will see clearly on the DVD, but also all the background fun that we had, it truly was a fantastic few days.

Many of you who already have Anthony’s Reality is plastic book know that it really is one of them books that you just simply can’t put down because it is so clear, precise and easy to understand, the DVD has been produced in exactly the same way. This is the first time a Hypnosis tutorial DVD has been produced to this level with 4 discs worth of training and live footage taking you through step by step process and also how you incorporate magic into hypnosis, so keep the sofa warm because I promise, you will not be moving from your seat.

The great thing about The Manchurian Approach is that you don’t need any prior knowledge to hypnosis in any way shape or form because Anthony has a fantastic way of breaking the misconceptions of hypnosis.

On a final note I hope you have a fantastic time watching the DVD and also going out there and performing it yourself, and remember Hypnosis can take your magic to a entirely new level what you do with it is limited by your own imagination.

All the best

Amit Badiani"

Our thanks to Amit for taking the time to contribute this fantastic praise and advice. We hope that you enjoy The Manchurian Approach!
