Does anyone have a picture of a Japanese shooting glove and perhaps an explaination of its use ?? I understand its use takes some of the pressure off of an arthritic drawing hand !!!

I would appreciate it.

Pat,

try here:

Please note that the oriental thumb release causes the arrow to paradox opposite to the mediterranean release. Thus, a right handed archer would place the arrow on the right side of the bow. Using a modern bow this would require a left-handed riser.

Hope this is of some use,
-bm.
