This course just blew me away. There's so much stuff here it's going to take me an age to unpack. Leo's style is original and unique but the methods and ideas are things anyone can adopt to suite themselves. Huge variety of stuff covered. Loved the chop cup routine, it was direct, snappy and fun. Been thinking about learning chop cup and now I know where to start. I think I will be coming back to this course over and over again for inspiration and instruction.
I thought this was an excellent lecture. Leo was very generous with his products and with his teaching and explanations. I look forward to practicing and performing some of the material. Hopefully he does another lecture on alakazam magic in the future.
This course is a treasure trove for nearly the whole range of magical branches! Leo is a unique performer and a very sociable person. His thinking and dedication are extraordinary. The quality of his props is also top notch. And Dave did a great job on getting the absolute maximum out of the explanations. Poor Leo :-) Well done guys!
The rock star magician ... this course was full of insightful knowledge and experience presented with the normal ( for Leo) high voltage pace and enthusiasm. His props , I have most of them are of excellent standard. Leo is a one off. His props are highly recommended. And I love these courses
Without a shadow of a doubt the best £20 I have invested in magic. From start to finish Leo explains the effects in great detail. The camera angles are a joy and the whole event ran seamlessly. Totally blown away. Still buzzing
Leo Smetsers course was excellent. 4 Hrs of solid entertainment and teaching. It left me enthusiastic to learn his routines. If you use just one routine out of all this it's worth the money.
Possibly one of the best lectures/academies/online magic training events that I've been on. I'd lost the spark for learning new stuff, but this has piqued my interest again!
Leo’s Course! I can say no more that Fantastic!
Leo is not only generous with his magic and skill but with his 'thank you' prizes for his online academy fans. He is a great character and offers such a huge number of diverse and killer tricks for all of us to consider. This is like a comedy cabaret show in itself. What a funny guy and one of the nicest magicians you could wish to meet. What a great lecture
I've often heard and read about how great Leo is, so decided to give this live academy a go. So glad I did, It's full of very commercial magic, that is quick and punchy, but everything has a fun, quirky twist. I usually feel good if I get just one thing out of a lecture, but I'm only halfway through the live stream, and there's already three pieces I know I'll be doing. Excellent stuff, and Leo seems like such a great guy too. Love it and highly recommend it!
Since I know Leo i'am a big fan, his style is fast and flashy with a lot of fun.... So is his lecture. And he's always ready to help.... Really great course.... Again...
Zany, Crazy, Wacky or just The Mad Man From Holland. What ever you call him, there is one thing that everyone calls him once they have seen him work and that is astonishing. Leo Smetsers mind is not one step ahead it's about one week ahead. This Academy course is insane and it is only half way through. The amount of info is massive but don't forget you can ask questions and watch back whenever you want in your Alakazam account. You really must treat yourself or someone you love by getting this course for them. Leo is so full of magic, you can almost see it leaking out of him. If he did not teach I think he may explode. I recommended this 100%.
The Alakazam courses are great, wish I got to see more of them live it's a different experience to watching them after. Leo is a great thinker and the course has so much you can use. You will learn lots and be entertained, amused and amazed all at the same time. Thanks To The Alakazam Team for these courses. And a Big Thanks to Leo for Teaching :)
The guys want an honest review. Ok. This has been superb. Leo is entertaining and presents some fantastic material . The prizes are a lovely bonus but not essential. The sound etc are great as usual. Dave certainly helps me understand the material better.Good job !!!
After two hours and fifteen minutes it's just the end of the first half!! Leo has some fantastic ideas and routines which he explains in great detail. These are all Leo's current workers. As usual with these Academy courses you can ask for more explanations or an overhead shot if you're not sure. this has been a great first half and I can't wait for the second half. If you haven't been on one of the Academy courses you are really missing out, regardless of your ability you will learn a lot.
I love this lecture. So different but so workable. I also won a great prize from the very generous Leo Smetsers, worth more than the price of admission. Leo is being very generous with his material. All in all a fabulous, offbeat, worker’s delight. All brilliantly produced by the team at Alakazam.
Wow. Love Leo's style and the tips and knowledge already shared is incredible. Card in Mind Technique worth at least twice the money paid for the course alone. Thank you Leo for giving us your time.
What a CRAZY night with Leo and the gang, brilliant effects, fantastic giveaways and great banter within the chat room as usual. Tonight has been awesome, cant wait for the 2nd half!
Leo is a breath of fresh air. His fun enthusiastic style just warms you to the magic. His routines and handlings are superb. The bravery and coolness of some of his moves are a joy. I'm normally a card man only but after tonight I plan to really have a go at chop cups plus also finally brave palming. Thanks Leo.Write Review
