The satisfaction of landing your first axe in a target is one of life’s most primal joys. It’s also not bad for blowing off steam. Aggression has no business being pent-up, and while some people opt to work off stress with high intensity workouts, maybe some yoga, or self-destructive behaviour, we reckon it’s way more effective to throw axes at the problem. That way you get the physical release of the act of axe-throwing, plus the thrill of wielding an actual weapon, and, if you’re good at it, gloating rights for hitting the bullseye.
The concept is simple and that’s why it’s ingenious. Despite sounding quite intimidating, axes don’t discriminate! Axe throwing is a back to basics activity, rewarding technique over strength.
Sweet Axe Throwing Co have been hucking axes in downtown Auckland for a year now and are inviting you to celebrate their first birthday in axe-flinging style.
How can you get amongst? Either book in to join a group session or tournament for $40 that runs for an hour or just stop by for a quick 10 throws for $10.
There'll also be live screen printing with Purinimalist so you can get your favourite axe pun or design put on your own shirt or one of theirs—winning.
This one's going to be a goodun so make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
