Archer Anas

this is a training session..
this video was actually to see how i shoot...
to see if i was doing anything wrong in my shoots...

the thing with archery is
that evena minor deviation in our aiming,
will result in a major deviation in our arrows path
the yellow line is a perfect shot....
say my aim was deviated to the right only slightly..
the flight of my arrow would be deviated a lot more to the right
and go off taget on the target board (target face)
this effect is magnified as the distance
becomes greater.
'under 18 tournament's have 4 distances
30m, 50m, 70m and 90m...
imagine at 90 metres...
only the slightest movement of my bow to the left
would cause my arrow to go greatly off target
and even miss (0 points!)
and to not make things easier
the arrow flies in a parabola...
the fight of the arrow vertically,
in the y axis, depends on
the length that i pull the bow string..
a greater pull makes the arrow go higher
and vice versa
every pull has to be the same...

it just makes getting a bull's eye...
how do you say it...
priceless....

This is (lebey kurang) the 'feel' of a tournament
Target boards just 'begging' to be shot at

Yes, the thing on the tripod is a telescope... it is crucial in the long distance events, unless you're superman
Notice also, the guy on the right, he's left handed, everything about his gear is different..

yes, there are that many people in a tournament, probably more

sorry kepalakotak... wasn't meant for you...

thanks for sharing.. very enlightening. personally, does this skill actually helps you to be a more FOCUSED person?? has it done 'wonders' to you?
curious*

YES! totally, definitely... i was thinking of writing about the wonders archery has done for me in this very same post... but i just couldn't seem to put them into words... it's that sort of thing you have to experience yourself... just like Qiyam, it's hard to put into words, if you know what i mean...

and i thank HIM everyday for giving me the chance (ok, that was a lie, i don't EVERYday, but there's a thought!)

it's not a surprise the Prophet PBUH asks us to attain this skill...
