A Crash Course in Throwing a Bullseye

If you want to split targets in half like a true professional, it's all about the proper technique. Good news is that's easy to learn. Everyone can become a professional axe thrower, regardless of their strength or ability. All it takes is some time and focus, and you'll be throwing an axe with sheer precision and accuracy.

There's so much fun in watching your axe split the target with each throw and you can play a lot of exciting, drinking games with your crew. Every person that misses the target needs to have a drink, or you can split into groups and play against each other, the options are endless.

Now, to learn to throw an axe like a professional, you'll need to master these five easy steps:


1. Stance

Everything begins with the stance. Why? BGecause the way you stand determines your success. It's most recommended to position your feet at shoulder-width and make sure your shoulders are confronting the target. The stance will get you ready to throw.

2. Grip

Use your dominant hand to grab the axe and make sure the blade is facing the target. You can throw with one or two hands, depending on your strength, stamina, and skill. A double-handed throw is more advisable for starters as it makes it easier to throw for the beginners.

3. Motion

It's important to keep in mind that you need to step forward at the moment of throwing. Swing the axe over your head and throw the axe while stepping forward. If you're left-handed, step forward with your right foot and vice versa.

4. Release

Raise your axe over your head as you take a step forward and release it. Aim a foot above the bullseye to hit it and finish by pointing at the bullseye after the release.

5. Hit the target

As you release the axe, finish by pointing with both hands towards the target. If it happens that it doesn't stick in the target, don't get down about it as this is a completely normal thing. That's why helpful and friendly coaches are around. They can share their knowledge to help you fine-tune your stance, grip, motion, and release and improve your results with each next throw.
