Overview

Concise and informative, The Art of Throwing is the ultimate introduction to the exciting world of throwing weapons.

It provides thorough explanation and instruction on everything from grips and stances, targets and trajectories, and even how to construct weapons.

Let The Art of Throwing ease your transition from novice to expert with its detailed, but easy to follow instructions from an author who has spent years mastering his technique.

With a foreword by knife throwing legend Joe "Brokenfeather" Darrah, this edition includes updated information and an hour-long instructional DVD to better aid newcomers in learning the basics or help experienced throwers perfect their techniques.

  • Japanese throwing implements—The Shuriken and the Shaken
  • Chinese throwing implements—The flying dart, the golden coin dart, the flying steel olive, and the flying sticker
