Your dominant hand should be higher on the handle, closer to the head, while your non-dominant hand provides support lower on the handle. Target Alignment: Face your target directly, keeping your body square to it. Align your dominant eye with the target to improve accuracy. Distance: Find the appropriate throwing distance based on the weight of the axe. For most axes, a distance of about 12 to 15 feet is suitable. Two-Handed Throw: Bring the axe behind your head, keeping it parallel to the ground. Use your dominant hand to guide the axe, while your non-dominant hand provides stability. Take a step forward with your lead foot, shifting your weight to your back foot. Release: Swing the axe forward in a smooth, controlled motion, extending your arms fully as you release the axe. Aim for a slight over-rotation to ensure the axe embeds in the target properly. Follow-Through: After releasing the axe, allow your arms to continue their natural motion, maintaining balance. Keep your focus on the target throughout the throw. Safety is paramount when throwing axes.
