ABOUT THIS EVENT

Food & Drink

Event Overview

Thanks for your interest in knife throwing. Morgan and John have passed the knives over to a new instructor...who happens to be Dabble's CEO! You can find his class listing here.


An art, skill, and sport, knife-throwing is a satisfying hobby and physical activity. Body position, aim, and muscle memory all play a part in a successful throw.


2-3 throwing techniques will be taught - with demonstration and practice throws for each. We'll end with a game or free-style throwing. This class aims to create a novice to intermediate knife-thrower. By learning and understanding different principles, movements, and techniques, the artist will have a foundation in which to grow.


Class notes: This is also an outdoor event-- light rain or shine, so dress accordingly. Some classes may be cancelled due to storms, so please be prepared to pick another date if the weather is not in our favor.


If the class is sold out, keep checking back! We run classes every other Saturday for days warmer than 40 degrees!


We are available to host private classes, which are great for large groups, birthday parties, team-building, etc.

    Class was awesome! I learned 3 throws. The instructors were great. The solid, beautiful sound of a knife plunking into a wood target still resonates in my mind. I'm off hunting wild boar and grisly bear with the swiss army knife I got for Christmas. Wish me luck!

    Very fun class in a fun environment. Knife throwing was a cool skill to learn, and because we happened to have a smaller class size than usual that day, we got to learn and try several different throws (which was nice if we weren't as successful at one). I would definitely recommend this class to my friends.

    The class was great! The instructors started with a demo of a basic throw, then we split up into groups to practice. The groups were small enough (3-4 people) that you got a lot of time throwing. The instructors then came around and offered critiques and then demonstrated different types of throws. Overall a really awesome experience - I'd highly recommend this class!!

Teachers both get an A plus, they made sure everyone had one on one attention, gave great feedback and were very charming. Maybe they need to teach a class on teaching! I want to go again.

    THIS CLASS WAS AWESOME! I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend, and we had SO. MUCH. FUN! Morgan and Jon were such great teachers and really helped you learn how to throw. They were patient and so sweet- couldn't have asked for better teachers! It was a cooler night, and there was a fire going which added to the atmosphere. Although it feels a little sketchy walking up, the people in the class were great and we ended up laughing and having fun the whole time! You learn different techniques, and threw with different knives. I'm telling all my friends to sign up! Totally worth the money!

    I had never heard of a knife throwing class before, so when I was browsing Dabble for the first time ever, I came across this class, and thought, 'Wow, How unique!' It was amazing, I loved this class, I have told all my friends about my experience and have encourage others to look into it, I'd take this class again that's how fun I thought it was, and I want to get better at knife throwing...for some reason. Morgan and John are so laid back and patient and really take the time to explain, demonstrate, and assist each individual with their technique.

    Didn't tell my husband what we were doing for his birthday last Saturday - just packed a cooler with beer, told him to wear sneakers and drove him to an alley on the west side. When I told him why we were there, he replied, " ... and we brought *beer*?" Yeah. We did. Why wouldn't we drink while hurling knives around? Had a great time - the teachers were great, and the whole group was a lot of fun. Would love to throw more knives.

Liked it so much that I immediately went home and looked up buying some throwing knives of my own, and then tried to convince every person I know to sign up to take the next knife throwing class with me. Extra fun if a bunch of friends go together and it's basically a private session for your group. If you're even wondered about maybe taking this class - DO IT!

    Morgan was an excellent teacher. I am sorely lacking in the hand-eye coordination department and so my only real goal going into this was to be able to hit the target ONCE. By the end of the class, I was getting three in a row on target. The knife throwing class is in an alley behind a big converted warehouse with various targets set up and a giant bonfire. It is a very casual and fun environment. Make sure to bring some beers and be ready to have a relaxing and entertaining time!
