Fire Breathing and Eating
FIRE BREATHING IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS – STRICTLY OVER 18s ONLY. PLEASE RESEARCH THE SUBJECT THOROUGHLY BEFORE DECIDING TO FIRE BREATHE. IF YOU STILL WANT TO DO IT YOU MUST PRACTISE WITH WATER AND GET INSTRUCTION FROM AN EXPERIENCED BREATHER BEFORE DOING IT FOR REAL. If you are going to do this dangerous art you’ll need quality kit so we provide nothing but the best fire breathing and eating torches.
Before buying these props have a good read of our disclaimer as you are agreeing to those terms by adding these items to your shopping cart. We also recommend reading the article by Pele on Home of Poi’s website. This article describes a fire breathing accident that befell an experienced and professional performer and the months and years of rehabilitation it required. You can also find several pages of fire breathing technique and safety advice there.
This video is an example of what can happen if you are unprepared.
For further advice we stock a selection of books and DVDs on the subject.
Fire eating is also dangerous but less so than breathing. Again we strongly recommend researching this art thoroughly and learning from an experienced performer. We also have books and DVDs on this subject for you to learn from too.
Fire breathing is spectacular and can be practised safely but like all fire arts you can never eliminate the risk completely. The difference with fire breathing is that if things go wrong you can cause yourself very serious injury or even die, whereas with poi or staff the worst that is likely to happen is a bad burn.
If you are ready and prepared to fire breathe, you’ll need excellent kit so you’ll find professional breathing torches from our own workshop and from other trusted manufacturers like Henry’s in this section.
