On television, watching ninja stars thrown is a lot of fun, but we must find other sources of excitement in real life. The daredevils and superheroes enjoy throwing knives. Once you master the technique, learning it is also elementary.
The first step in learning how to throw knives is to choose and perfect a method or technique. But possessing the ideal throwing knife is the most crucial factor. Otherwise, poor equipment will prevent you from ever making a great shot.
Before advancing to throws, decide how you want to hold the knife.
• Hammer grip — Place the knife horizontally in your hand. Take a firm hold of it with both hands, like a hammer handle. Place your thumb on the side center.
Using the McEvoy grip, hold the knife vertically. Take a hammer-like grip and lay your thumb on the top edge.
•Pinch grip: Place the knife’s tip between your index finger’s second knuckle and thumb. Put your remaining hand in a fist-like position.
•Slider grip: Hold the knife as if it were an extension of your middle finger, parallel to your hand’s palm. To hold the blade in place, place your thumb over it as if you were making the number 4 with your hand.
Once the grip end has been chosen, hold the knife in place with your thumb on the other side and your index, middle, and ring fingers. Place your thumb, first and second fingers, and pinky near the end of the knife so that your hand just curls and your pinky hangs off. Try some of the grip variants listed below while honing your throwing technique if this one seems like it could be more natural or function better for you.
You can now proceed to some throws.
Throwing a half-spin
The knife makes a half-spin in the space between your hand and the target. Start your practice at a distance of about 15 feet from the target and adjust it as necessary:
1. With your shoulders squared in the direction of your target, raise your knife like a hammer.
2. Take a step into a modest throw as you reach back. Try to avoid tossing it as forcefully as you can.
3. Once the knife is extended in front of you, release it. Avoid jerking your wrist.
Before impacting the target, the knife makes a 1/4 turn in the air. You should set up around halfway closer to the objective because you will be exercising half the spin. With a knife that is balanced, the grip performs best. Practice the following approach:
1. Hold the knife’s handle as tightly as possible between your thumb and the second knuckle of your middle finger.
2. Place your index finger on the handle’s back edge next to the blade, then curl your other fingers naturally in your hand.
3. Raise the blade so that the point is facing upward.
4. Instead of bending at the elbow, do so at the shoulder
5. Make a few repetitions of aiming your knife’s tip at the target.
6. When the knife’s tip is aimed at your intended target, wind it up, step into your throw, and then let go.
