It doesn't come as a shock to learn that Jason Momoa has turned himself into a gym teacher for his kids whilst in lockdown. But one of his ax-throwing lessons has caught the attention of fans online for its particularly dangerous nature...
Keep scrolling to see the shocking video so you can decide if the outrage was justified...
It doesn't get better than Jason Momoa, does it?
via: Getty ImagesBorn in 1979, in Honolulu, Hawaii, the six-foot-four actor has only recently become a household name.
Despite his Hawaiian heritage, Momoa was primarily raised in Iowa...
via: IMDBAnd many don't know that, before he started out as an actor, Momoa actually studied both marine biology and wildlife biology - proving that he's more than just a pretty face.
But on-screen, his first big role was on Stargate: Atlantis.The sci-fi military hybrid was actually fairly successful and Momoa starred as Ronon Dex, to much critical acclaim.
But there's really only one role that could be deemed as Momoa's big break.In 2011, Momoa was cast in the first series of a relatively small fantasy show called Game of Thrones.
And, as we all know, it absolutely blew up.
via: IMDBGame of Thrones became far more successful than anyone could have ever imagined. And Momoa's character, Khal Drogo, quickly became a fan favorite.
He had some pretty badass moments.As the leading warrior in the savage Dothraki tribe, Momoa was, unsurprisingly, very violent. In one particularly memorable scene, Drogo brutally murdered Viserys Targaryen by pouring molten gold onto his head... ouch.
But there was another storyline that fans didn't expect.
via: IMDBIn the early episodes of the show's first season, Drogo was married to Daenerys Targaryen in an arranged ceremony. But the 2 seemingly opposite characters developed real feelings for each other and theirs became one of the cutest and most genuine love stories in the show.
Even though his character wasn't alive throughout the entire GOT, Momoa is still a fan-favorite...
Aquaman was also a part of 2017's Justice League.
via: IMDBThe character was so well liked that in 2018, the DC Universe decided that it was time for a solo film. Aquaman was a massive success.
Early in 2019, it was revealed that the movie had earned a coveted spot in the billion-dollar superhero club.person of color.
Since the success of Aquaman, Momoa has gone from strength to strength.
He has also starred in many television shows.
And Momoa has an equally exciting personal life.
The beautiful couple have two children together.
via: Getty ImagesThey share a daughter, Lola Iolani Momoa, born in 2007, and a son, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, born in 2008. Momoa is also a stepfather to singer and actress, Zoe Kravitz.
But if there's one thing that is very obvious...
The actor is known well for his incredible physique...
via: IMDBSo we can only just imagine his daily workout regime.
Just like millions of others, Momoa is currently living in lockdown with his family.
But Momoa has decided to take on the valiant role of the P.E teacher during lockdown.

He revealed that his family are actually having a wonderful time together.

They're also thankful for their backyard space, which gives them room to enjoy being outside while still social distancing.
Of course, it has been a bit of an adjustment...
via: The Ellen ShowBut the kids are enjoying themselves regardless, and they were already homeschooled so that isn't anything new for them.
Jason's backyard is now an interactive jungle gym...
He has incorporated these tools into his classes...
via: Instagram"Thank god they have their teachers, and much respect, because it’s kind of [over my head] for me. I’m like the P.E. coach, like 'Get your ass outside!' You want to go rock climb, skateboard, that’s about it," he said.
But his most recent Instagram post has left people questioning his tactics.
via: TwitterEven though it was meant to be a funny video, and it was because no one got hurt, it seems as though some people just found the whole concept too uncomfortable.
In the video, Momoa is teaching his son how to throw tomahawks...
via: TwitterBut without looking at the target.
You can see him preparing himself with all the weapons.
via: TwitterThe actor is holding several axes in his left hand, while in the other he is aiming a tomahawk at a time before simultaneously looking away and throwing them at the "target."
He says this:
via: Twitter"You kinda want to glance and turn away. It's not really important," Momoa says to his son, who appeared to be recording the video and laughing. "Just make sure no one's walking in the way, you know what I'm saying?"
"It's all about arrogance and confidence. You don't even need to look."
via: TwitterWe're assuming this is the advice that has got people riled up.
There have been mixed reactions to the advice, as you can see.This Facebook user believed that teaching children such risky skills is careless, not to mention extremely dangerous.
Others worried about whoever was in the tent...
