(Please note that Steve is fully insured and he is qualified to write HSE risk assessments for such a demonstration). Steve has choreographed and performed full stunt team displays including the 'kidnapping' of an audience member, followed by subsequent 'rescue' by a James Bond or SAS team. Car stunt shows or stunt 'joy rides' for delegates at events can also be catered for.
