In 2009, Japanese magician Yo Kato won first place at the Beijing FISM for Manipulation. Here is his Wand Manipulation routine, and it is as fun as it is impressive. There’s some clearer footage from French television, but I’ve gone with this footage because the “Le Plus Grand Cabaret du monde” footage just has too much in the way of audience reaction shots. I mean, seriously, we can hear the audience applause. We don’t need to see them. Leave the camera shots on the magician.
