How to Throw an Axe

(Even the kiddos catch on in a few minutes!)

Grip the Axe

Wrap your dominant hand around the bottom of the handle. Then, wrap your other hand around your dominant hand and cross your thumbs.

Take Your Stance

After gripping the axe, place your non-dominant foot (left foot for righties) slightly forward. Prepare to raise both arms above and behind your head.

Begin Your Throw

After you bring the axe above and behind your head, in one motion, step with your non-dominant foot while bringing your axe forward. 

Release the Axe

When the axe is level with your eyes, release it and then follow through. 

TIP: You can also throw with one hand if you maintain the same principles as throwing with two hands. Don't throw it like a baseball. Keep your wrists and arms as firm as possible while remaining fluid in your throw.
