LEARNING THE BASICS
OF AXE-THROWING

LumberJaxe is the ultimate axe throwing experience & private event destination

Everyone – regardless of ability - can learn to throw an axe with accuracy in a very short time. Follow these simple instructions to discover how much fun it is to watch your axe split the target every time!

axe-throwing
Step 1. Stance
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Ensure your shoulders are square to the target. Now you’re ready to throw!
axe-throwing
Step 2. GET A GOOD GRIP
Grab the axe with your dominant hand and the blade facing away from you.  For a double handed throw (advisable to start), cup your other hand over your dominant hand.

Step 3. Motion
Reach back with the axe over your head and step forward with your non-dominant foot.  i.e. If you’re right handed – you’ll step forward with your left foot.

Step 4. Release
Release the axe as if you are aiming a foot above the bullseye.  The weight of the axe will bring it down to the target.  PRO TIP: after you release, finish by pointing at the bullseye; you'll have a better chance of hitting it!

Step 5. Stick It!
The axe should rotate once over and stick in the target.  Sometimes it doesn't.  It happens to the best of us. Lean on our friendly, helpful coaches for adjustments to fine tune your throwing motion and improve your results.

Went to Lumberjaxe with a group of friends and we had a blast! We went from barely hitting the board to throwing bulleyes in no time - thanks to their coaches. The food was also quite tasty. If you are looking for something fun to do in Ottawa, be sure to check out Lumberjaxe!

LumberJaxe was an awesome place to go axe throwing for the first time! I went with a group of girls for a bachalorette. The staff were awesome, super helpful, very patient with us and gave us helpful feedback throughout our time there to help us become the best axe-throwers! 10/10 will be back!

The staff & owner were some of the greatest people I've ever dealt with, patient, fun and informative. The music is great, the beer selection is plentiful, and the whole place is built around having fun. Those two hours went by wayyyy too fast.
