Axe Throwing "chops" away holiday stress: You can take the axe throwing out of the country but you sure can't take the fun out of the axe throwing! It's growing pastime in urban areas, and thanks to Bad Axe Throwing, people of all ages are learning the skill, precision, and strength needed to hit a target with a spinning axe. Bad Axe Throwing allows people to try out the hobby of axe throwing in a safe, indoor environment under the watchful eye of trained instructors. The company was founded in 2014 by CEO Mario Zelaya, who opened the first location in Burlington, Ontario with the mission of giving guests the chance to do a little "target practice" with axes. Now, there are 16 facilities in Canada and the United States, and one of the largest is located at 1356 English Street, Suite C, in Atlanta. Axe throwing costs $20 per hour for walk-ins with group rates also available, and guests are welcome to bring their own food and drink. Children are allowed to try out axe throwing at the Atlanta location, but must be able to safely handle the equipment and be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning at Bad Axe Throwing, getting some tips from the pros and learning more about why axe throwing is becoming such a popular pastime in Metro Atlanta.
