The Academy of Martial Arts is “axecited” to announce the opening of their new knife and axe throwing lanes. Although knife and axe throwing has always been available at the Academy the decision was made, partly due to the challenging times brought on by the pandemic, to not only upgrade the throwing targets and lanes but to also introduce the sport of knife and axe throwing to the island by starting the islands first competitive knife and axe throwing league.
In preparation for this the chief instructor of the Academy, Sensei Bob Smith, joined the World Knife Throwing League (WKTL) and The World Axe Throwing League (WATL) & since which has become certified by both leagues as a coach.
The sport, which got its start in Canada, has become quite popular recently with axe throwing facilities opening up worldwide. In fact, the World Axe Throwing Leagues tournaments and world championship are featured on ESPN. Local league members will have their stats recorded on the WATL official leaderboard and those who excel could qualify for entry to the world championships. League membership is open to individuals as well as teams of 4 and no experience is necessary.
For those not interested in league play the lanes are also available for corporate events and private parties. The projected target system is state of the art as it not only offers the standard bullseye but also - Moving Bullseyes, Tic Tac Toe, Line up 4, Zombie Killer, Duck Hunter and more. Hence the knife and axe throwing lanes have already become popular with local companies booking the space for their corporate team building and/or providing their clients with an “Axeperience” they’ll never forget.
All sessions include a knife and axe safety lesson, throwing instructions, individual coaching, standard game participation & a personal coach for the entire session. The lanes are available to everyone 8 years and older. (those between the ages of 8-14 must be accompanied by a parent)
The fees start at $35 per hour / per person (2 person minimum) For more information call: 505-6038 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
