Questions and Answers (FAQ)

I don’t know what discipline to choose! What’s the best?

Sometimes it is not the artist who chooses the discipline but the discipline that chooses the artist! We have fire-free training equipment on site that you can manipulate to experiment. There is no discipline better than any other, the important thing is that you feel pleasure in practicing.

Do I need to be a fire artist to participate?

No, not at all!

On the other hand, it is important to know that being an artist of fire requires certain mental and physical qualities. If you can’t move easily, can’t concentrate or act quickly, the fire arts may not be for you. When you register, you will have to accept a waiver that stipulates several conditions.

The formation Fire safety training theoretical and practical is mandatory and included free of charge in the subscription.

No one can enter the security perimeter without having successfully completed the fire arts security training.

If this is your very first contact with fire, make sure you wear only natural fibers (cotton, wool, linen, leather), nothing synthetic.

If I already have my students, can I use your training area for my fire classes?

If you already have your students, we can organize an area dedicated to your group.
