Axe throwing is an increasingly popular activity for groups of people, from adventurous kids to corporate team-building events. While axe throwing is an exciting experience, it's important to understand safety protocols and develop the proper technique to make sure everyone has an enjoyable time at the facility. This article will look at how you can impress people at axe throwing facilities.
Safety is always the priority at any axe throwing facility. Axe throwing is an inherently dangerous activity, so it's important to follow the safety guidelines established by the facility.
This may include wearing protective equipment such as eye protection, closed-toed shoes, and long pants. Every facility will have a different set of safety protocols, so be sure to ask the staff for details to make sure everyone is properly protected.
When throwing, proper technique is key. The aim should be to hit the bullseye, or the center of the target, with the axe head. To do this, hold the axe handle with both hands, slowly raise it to chest level, and then swing it towards the target with your arms. It's also important to maintain a good form throughout the motion. Keep your shoulder and arms straight, and your eyes on the target.
While perfecting your technique takes practice, most axe throwing facilities also offer tips and drills. Axe throwing coaches are available to help you understand how to do it the right way. For more information, please review the attached video..
