West Stow – Axe & Knife Throwing


Warning… This Target Sport is Extremely Addictive!
The Anglo-Saxons would use a specially designed throwing axe (a francisca) before the initial clash with the enemy, throwing them to create damage & havoc. During these session, you’ll not only learn how to safely & responsibly throw an axe, but to make it stick in specially prepared wooden targets, rather than an enemy!
