All about us
ChillAxe is thrilled to bring axe throwing to North Huntingdon.
Come on, everyone knows axes are one of mankind’s oldest tools, but, aye, leave it to the Canadians to make it into amusement! Axe throwing is a traditional past time for over a decade in Canada but has recently entered the United States-and NOW in your neighborhood!
We are in Banco Business Park just off Main Street near the Hahntown Fire Department in North Huntingdon.
Anyone can throw an axe!
Well… we’d like to think they can! With a couple basic steps you will be well on your way!
Your first step is YOUR GRIP: Position your dominant hand around the axe handle bottom, place your other hand over your dominant hand and cross your thumbs.
Second Step is all in YOUR STANCE: Hold the axe out towards the front of your body. Line the blade as straight as you can to the target. Make sure you point the sharp edge of the axe towards the target and not towards yourself. (we know) Put your non-dominant foot forward.
Then there is THE WIND-UP: It’s a rocking motion- Rock your body forward with the axe out towards the target and then rock your body backward keeping your grip on the axe and straight over your head.
Now, what you’ve been waiting for, THE RELEASE: Bring that axe forward quickly and let it go toward the target keeping your arms extended and following through. We bet after a couple times you’ll be “sticking it”!
