HOW TO THROW AN AXE

Our axe coaches provide training, coaching and supervise during matches, but if you’re curious or like to come prepared, here is a guide on how to throw an axe that you can use for your axe throwing session!

How to throw an axe part 1: Grip the axe

GRIP THE AXE:

Hold the axe, blade side up and facing the target, centered with your body, with your arms fully extended. Leave an inch of room at the bottom of the axe shaft. Be sure you have a firm grip of the axe prior to throwing.

BRING IT BACK:

Bring the axe back up and over your head as far back as is comfortable for you without the axe touching your back. Lean back a little with this motion.
