We are an Italian Association of Knives and Axes Throwers, born from SILCA (Italian School ot Throwing Knives and Axes), our purpose is to involve more people in this amazing sport.

What we do had nothing to do with circus shows, it’s a real sport, with rules and competitions at every level. The throw is a sport that allow the athletes to improve their body and mind focus in order to achieve the perfect throw.

Our competitions includes precision at several distances, speeds and strenghts. 

The Throwing universe has many urban myths to debunk, like for instance the common but wrong idea of the balanced knife. 
Everything can be thrown, is the thrower who has to find the perfect way to hit the target with it.
