Following a warm welcome and guest sign in, the first thing we will do is a full safety briefing. This covers all aspects of our activity from beginning to end and provides guests with an opportunity to ask any questions they might have. Once this is complete we'll begin focussing on the basic technique of axe throwing and what is involved to do it well. Then it is axe throwing time where guests take their position in front of our targets! After a few goes they become accustomed to throwing and start to lose any inhibitions they might have had to begin with. All the while, I will be observing them and offering tips on technique and hints on how they can improve. We then slowly introduce a range of styles working towards some really fun throws that will really challenge them. Examples might be, 2 axes at once, a rapid fire round or throwing with the axes facing backwards. And finally, it's all vs all and time to put their new skills to the test in our golden axe competition!
My name is Gareth, I'm a professional axe thrower and the founder of Black Axe Throwing Co. Along with my two instructors, Kevin and Jake, we'll provide expert advice on your axe throwing technique from your very first throw. I have successfully taught hundreds of guests the basics, working through to more advanced throws and finally trick shots. Using my extensive experience and knowledge, I'll give you all the tools and coaching you need to land that magical first throw into the target. I once even taught a 73-year-old grandma to throw 2 axes at once!
We'll provide custom designed axe throwing lanes, targets, axes (of course!) and a full on-site safety briefing
Guests will participate within our custom built axe throwing lanes that provide a safe environment for our activity. These are housed within specifically chosen venue which provides the space we require
Any difficulties in finding us, ask any member of the Cityside team to point you towards the axe throwing!
