Seeing a fire performance with Major Blaze is something you will not forget. Audiences are startled and amazed as he discharges volumes of flames around his body, using a hand held fire canon of brass and copper. 

As a second act, he weaves flames with a bullwhip, then cracks the whip at a speed of over 700mph, creating a massive ball of fire!  See this video of Major Blaze and his canon
