WHY WOULD I WANT TO THROW AN AXE?

Because inside of you there is a tomahawk tossing ninja that has been dying to be let loose since you were 9 years old!  And because it is so much fun!!  Indoor Axe Throwing has been around in Canada for 10 years and is a popular pastime for our friendly neighbors up North.  Learning the sport of Axe Throwing in a safe and controlled environment from an experienced instructor is a great way to be introduced to the sport.  The thrill of victory and rush of adrenaline you get when you sink a bullseye and hear your friends screaming your name will be etched into your brain from eternity!
