One throwing technique that many find helpful is typically referred to as the “Canadian Flick”. I know I said to avoid wrist flicking but this is a completely different type of flicking. The motion is more like throwing a dart while stepping in. You line up your shot with your dominant foot. For example. if you are going for bullseye and you are right-handed, you point your right foot toward the bullseye. Your elbow should be pointed toward the target. Bring the axe back in a ready position over the shoulder. Step forward, extend your arm toward the target and release. You still follow through with the throw, it’s the popping of the elbow that causes a slight flick of the wrist. As with all techniques, this takes practice but with time it will help with accuracy.
An Axe Thrower
Hi friends! My name is Freya and I am a coach at the Agawam Axe House. Outside of axe throwing, writing has always been a passion of mine. With this blog, I hope to create a space for axe throwers of all skill levels to come and learn more about the sport they love. When I am not axe throwing or writing, you can find me hiking, practicing yoga, sipping the best local craft brews, cozied up with a good book or relaxing with my husband and our cat Nugget. Want to learn more? Check out my Instagram @confessionsofanaxethrower for tutorials and cool trick shots.
