Khuyen stands by his Doctor of Magic Diploma

Magicians in Ho Chi Minh City gathered Monday (October 29) to congratulate Nguyen Trung Khuyen as he has received a doctorate degree in magic from the world's largest magic society.

The International Magicians Society (IMS), which has grown to 37,000 members across the globe, granted Khuyen his doctor of magic diploma last month, making him the IMS's highest ranked magician in Vietnam.

It took the 68-year-old magician almost a year to cover all 50 lessons required by IMS before passing the test and getting the diploma.

The HCMC Magic and Circus Club was very proud of Khuyen, Nguoi Lao Dong quoted the head of the club as saying. "The club has been...training many young magicians for many years thanks to his [Khuyen's] big contribution."

Many magicians performed for Khuyen at the event in HCMC .

Khuyen began his career when he was 16. His card and pigeon tricks have gained him popularity ever since.

He is also famous as a composer.
