Javelins in Belegarth
Javelins play an important role for many Belegarth warriors, it being a weapon that can be thrown and used to stab opponents.
To throw a javelin, one must hold it like a large pencil, with all fingers beneath the shaft of the weapon except for the index finger. It should be held where the javelin is balanced on the hand. To throw the weapon, extend the arm and flick your wrist in a smooth motion. The shoulder muscle is also very important to give the javelin speed an accuracy. Make sure you are at least 3 ft. away from your target when throwing, as not to injure them.
