Your source for updates about the sport of axe throwing, the NATF and our member organizations.
The National Axe Throwing Federation's member LA AX was recently featured in the LA Times.
The article "Ax Marks the Spot at New L.A. Club" by Erin Maxwell describes LA AX as;
"Nestled in the heart of North Hollywood, LA AX is a more than 12,000-square-foot space providing 30 lanes in which to perfect tossing the woodcutter’s weapon of choice. After a grand opening earlier this year, LA AX has staked its claim to become part of a new wave of competitive gaming in Los Angeles, hoping to turn the curious into casual throwers and casual throwers into “axperts.”
She also highlights the feedback from the local community by featuring a quote from local Alexa Oliphant; “I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t drawn to the primal aspects of ax throwing — after all I was raised on Lord of the Rings," a recent convert to the sport. "But once I actually got trained up by the staff at LA AX, I was blown away by how much fun it was to learn technique, posture and actually getting better at hurling metal hatchets at targets."
