What you'll do
After a warm welcome to our throwing cages we'll jump right into a safety briefing. This covers how the stay safe, scoring and competition rules (we can't have any cheating at crunch time can we?). Then it is to the reason you guys are all here, the AXES. We'll run through the basic technique, how to hold and how to throw the axe. Once we're through this, it is down to you to have a go! I'll be on hand throughout the session, watching your throw, offering advice on how you can improve. What is really important to me is that you start to understand your own technique so when you finally leave, you're a fully fledged axe ninja! Once the basics are out of the way it's quickly onto a wide selection of new throws, double-handed, throwing with the axe head facing backwards, throwing 2 axes at once. These will all help you to develop a strong technique in time for our rapid fire round and then ..the team COMPETITON! Pit your skills against the others in your group, competition mode always brings out some strong axe game! Finally, If we have any time left over at the end I'll show you a trick shot or two that only the pro's get to use
Hi, I'm Gareth, I'm a professional axe thrower and the founder of Black Axe Throwing Co. Along with my co-hosts Lizzie, James and Ben, we'll provide expert advice from your very first throw, giving you all the tools you need to land that magical first axe into the target. We'll cover safety and the basics, some advanced throws that you're probably not expecting and then finally... it's COMPETITON TIME. Test your new skills in our Golden Axe championship. Never held an axe before? Don't worry, we've got you. Just ask the 73-year-old grandma we taught to throw two axes at once! She nailed it.
