+ What is axe throwing?

Believe it or not, axe throwing has been around for a while now and is quite safe. It typically involves throwing an axe at a wood target. The goal is to embed the axe as close to the bullseye as possible.

How does it work?

It’s actually pretty easy to master and involves an axe rotating once fully in the air before hitting its target. Once an overview on proper safety is given, your coach will help you with proper hand/grip placement, throwing motion, and standing distance. Once the basics are demonstrated and acknowledged, you are free to throw.

+ What makes The Virginia Axe Co. different than other axe throwing establishments?

It’s all in our mission: To provide an exciting new adventure, cause no unnecessary waste in our process, inspire new bladed sports participants through a sharing of our competitive knowledge, experience and passion.

The Virginia Axe Co. is a locally owned, multi-family run facility. We are committed to using regionally repurposed timber cut targets from naturally or already downed trees. Though we may offer different types of target builds, any materials we use are recycled responsibly.

We bring years of real experience to these sports. We didn’t just jump into a new fad and take it corporate. We’ve been competing nationally in the bladed sports arena for years. We are proud to bring our years of award-winning competitive knife and axe throwing experience to the Richmond area community.
