Intro: How to Throw a Tomahawk

This is how to throw a tomahawk the right way.

Step 1: Your Stance

Stand with your feet about 2 feet apart . The right foot a little more forward than the left.

Step 2: How to Aim

Look across the top of the handle. Then line it up as best as you can with the center of your target.

Step 3: Throwing It

Now pull back keeping it straight. Then swing, releasing when you reach the spot where you aimed it

Step 4: Now One More Thing

Last step. I promise. The last thing you have to do is get a bullseye. And congrats. You will have mastered the Tomahawk.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but it is a combination of how hard you throw, and how close you are to the target. Once you have the muscle memory of how heavy your Tomahawk is you should have a feel for how fast it will rotate. That timing will change once you get closer or farther. One tip I was taught was to start at a set distance and throw it with the same force every time. If your blade is not hitting first, take a step forward or a step back. You will soon find the spot where it hits blade first every time.

    we threw at 10, 20, and 40 feet from target. You are right about the step up or back to get the rotation correct.

    this is how the group I threw with does it...if the tomahawk is too large for you to throw with one hand maybe you need a mousehawk... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1GQFR0_OFQ

    uhhmmm...I don't think that you really want to throw your tomahawk BEFORE you find your bullseye... that is, unless maybe you have another target in mind??? ;)
