Consider the excitement of hurling an axe at your target. But it’s not as simple as it appears. Axe throwing is a popular sport among many people. Of course, there are specific safety concerns to think about before getting started!
Here are some of the burning questions we had as we learned how to throw axes properly.
- Can Anyone Do Axe Throwing?
Throwing an axe is a little more involved than simply “throwing an axe.” Some things need to be explained before axe throwing can take place. Throwing axes was once an ordinary skill used to fight, hunt food, or protect themselves from dangerous animals and attackers. Axe throwing is a popular sport and recreational activity among friends and family.
- Why is Axe-Throwing Chosen Over Other Sports?
Why not? This is the most straightforward response to this issue. You may have tried other sports, but axe-throwing will undoubtedly provide you with a new level of thrill and adrenaline that you have never experienced before. Also, while axe-throwing may appear to be something that can only be done in the woods, axe-throwing facilities are typically found in cities.
- Is There an Age Requirement for Axe Throwing?
Axe-throwing is not appropriate for anyone’s age group. Before trying ax throwings, there are several elements to consider, such as strength, coordination, and mental fortitude; thus, suitability depends on the person undertaking the exercise. A decent age to try axe throwing is 13 years old and up. Get in touch with us to learn more about Corporate Event Axe Throwing.
- Is Axe Throwing Dangerous?
Yes, axe-throwing can be dangerous if you’re thinking of chopping down trees with axes. On the other hand, Ax throwing is intended to be a recreational and sporting activity. There should be no harm or hazard if done appropriately. The axes used for axe throwing have specifically designed blunt axe heads with no sharp edges, so they won’t hurt your skin if thrown at you by accident (unless you try catching them). Furthermore, because axe throwing is done indoors in specially designed places and events under the supervision of skilled specialists, safety should not be a significant problem.
- Where Did the Sport of Axe Throwing Originate?
Axe-throwing dates back to the earliest of the axe and have existed for thousands of years, either before or after the Neolithic period. As previously said, axe-throwing was employed for self-defense and hunting; therefore, it’s only natural that it evolved from a time when people had to fend for themselves against predators and other humans.
- Can Spectators Come and Watch?
Yes, of course! Spectators are welcome to come to watch the sport at most places. Keep in mind that there may be a fee for spectators to enter the venue. Get in touch with us to learn more about Corporate Team Building Events in Spokane.
- What Should I Wear When I Go Axe Throwing?
Clothing that allows for the most upper body movement without being burdensome or bulky is ideal for axe throwing. When it comes to footwear, choose closed-toe styles that provide a firm foundation (ladies, avoid wearing heels).
Will There Be Training?
Yes, axe throwing venues have coaches trained in axe safety and prepare newcomers for their first experience. The training includes proper throwing skills and how to handle the axe safely. Coaches will be on hand throughout your time at the facility to help you hit the target and advise you on making the most of your time there.
