Classic linking rings in depth
A class by Vice-Worldchampion Parlour Magic Axel Hecklau.

There are many books and videos about the linking rings. But they describe the moves only. To get a deep understanding for this gem it is necessary to think about many theoretical aspects as well.

These thoughts are crucial if you like to develop and understand a successful routine.
In this Masterclass we will discuss and analyze different routines and get a deep view on this still actual classic in magic.

On top of that you will learn the silent links and unlinks developed by Axel Hecklau and why "silent" increases the effect dramatically.

You will also learn Axels full 7 Ring routine.

Push this universal piece of magic to the next level.

If you've ever thought about performing the linking rings as a stunningly beautiful effect, or struggled with the moves and means to accomplish it, this is the place to learn. I hung onto nearly every word in this course and will use every idea put forth here in real situations. The philosophy behind his dramatic structure was enough for the price alone, but his moves are really a marvel. I'm sure that if I'd been more experienced with the rings, I could've gained even more from this class. Axel is an excellent instructor and went above and beyond to familiarize us with the props, history, and techniques involved with the Linking rings. He covered many questions about techniques in general that did not even pertain to his specific performance. The beauty of this course, is the ability of having such an excellent instructor correct you, and offer advice on your handling in real time!

Off to a great start! This was a very informative and instructive class. Choice of rings, handling just a single ring (our first homework!) to multiple rings, the 3-D appearance of a ring and much more.
