how to throw an axe
Place your dominant hand around the bottom of the handle of the axe. Place your other hand over the dominant hand. Cross your thumbs.
Hold axe outward in front of you with the blade as straight as possible in relation to the target. Right handed throwers should put their left foot forward. Vice-versa for lefties.
Rock your body forward with the axe extended toward the target. Rock your body backward and bring the axe straight back over your head. You look like a badass right now.
Bring the axe forward at a fast pace and release it toward the target with arms extended. Be sure to follow through and allow your hands to reach your sides.
