This training course is designed for those who have a personal interest in the sport but no immediate plans to instruct others – simply want to study and learn the art – no prior experience necessary.

Whether beginner or intermediate, this intensive weekend course will provide you with the understanding of how to safely develop your own personal skills in a variety of basic and advanced techniques.

Once you’ve nailed the techniques in your own time, you can even come back for an optional assessment and gain your Survival School Level 2 Wilderness Skills Range Techniques qualification, which is NCFE CQ Accredited!

All set in a woodland area, how therapeutic can it get!

  1. Suzie

    Axe and knife throwing weekend
    This course was a natural progression from the throwing I do with Ray on a monthly basis.
    Ray is a calm, patient and nurturing instructor. I learnt a lot of new skills, and had a lot of laughs in doing so.
    The evenings were spent laughing and making friends.
    I am looking forward to this course coming up again, as I would love to do it again.
    Brilliant knowledge and experience was had by all.
