    I have noticed something. It seems like every weekend that I go to the range to shoot, I have to relearn how. What I mean by that is, its like I have to shoot for a hour before everything starts coming together for me. Usually I get to a point getting tired. To which I take a break and go walk...

    Problems are isomorphic when they share a similar structure. They may be vastly different activities but still possess knowledge that can be used to support one another. Weight lifting and shooting a bow are different, yet there are elements of form, process and mental preparation common to...

    My three year old grandson, Ace River Reed. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10205993764499659 He really gained a lot when I got him away from the shorty arrows that he had been flinging. He was able to go three for three in no time at all.

    I have mentioned in the past my troubles learning to shoot a longbow with wood arrows. I was lucky to keep the arrows on the target. Things are finally starting to click, and it is the direct result of changes I have made shooting a barebow using the KSL method. Even though I have never tuned my...

    Hey guys, I ran into an issue and would appreciate any input or advice you can give. I've been learning on a 62" 35# Samick Sage recurve for a few months now, and I am making good improvement using the bridge method. For the past few weeks, I have been shooting 3-4" groupings from 5-10 yards...

    I joined this place to "officialize" my desire to learn this sport. Among other things, I know I need to spend some time with somebody who knows proper form and technique so my new hobby doesn't acquire incorrectable bad habits. I noticed a recent post of this sort: This sounds like me. My...
