Blade Aces is a professional organization with one mission in mind: To design, create and build the most professional, standardized, and fun precision action sports organization in the world. Designed by professional competitors for professional competitors, the Blade Aces organization is a non-political, commercial entity that does not shy away from committing to competition from all over the world.

Founded and operated by T.J. and Melody Valerious in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Blade Aces organization works tirelessly to find sponsors, advertisers, and supporters for the precision projectile sports like knife & ax throwing and more. Through these sponsors and supporters, we can grow the sport into a high adrenaline, exciting event in the eyes of the general public.

  1. Knife throwing (Spin & No Spin)
  2. Ax/Tomahawk throwing (Tomahawk & Small Axe)
  3. Large ax (Single and Double Bit)


Blade Aces HQ has moved to Texas. Our next competition will be in Blanco at the Buggy Barn on April 23rd-25th.
