I have the power!…axe?
Don’t you find it curious that while swords are widely
studied, collected and romanticized, the axe is mostly seen
as a crude tool/weapon at best?
You can go to classes to learn all sorts of sword fighting styles
(even make-believe ones like light sabers) but it’s difficult
to even find some basic information about using axes in combat.
Silly humans and their fascination for weedy swords…

The term axe is a rather loose one (as is sword in fairness) but a big bastard like that would be used in simple sweeping arcs, from horizontal perhaps up to about 50 degrees from horizontal. There is not too much finesse in their use, but anything they DO hit tend to regret getting in the way. If you want to see some more flashy and finessed axe combat you want to look at the traditional bearded handaxe, which tended to be used with a shield and was amazing at grabbing and raking at armour, shields and other things (like heads).
