– Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and the axe in your dominant hand.

– Grip the axe by the handle and raise it above your head. Some use two hands and go directly over their head with the axe. Some like to use one hand and bring the axe over their ear. Some like to stand still when throwing, while others like to take a step forward.

– Bring the axe down in a smooth, controlled motion and release it when it reaches eye level.

– Follow through with your throw and watch as the axe sticks into the target!
