Training Together Pays Dividends Beyond Exercising

Category : FC Club News


Training with a group makes people feel physically and mentally better than working out alone. Researchers have studied this fact for decades and have found working out in a group lowers stress by 25-35 percent and significantly improved quality of life.

Although those who exercise individually put in more effort, they experienced no significant changes in their stress or perceived physical fitness levels.

“The communal benefits of coming together with friends and colleagues, and doing something difficult, while encouraging one another, pays dividends beyond exercising alone”

Here is a video series I filmed about the 10 Steps to Shooting a Bow that explains what it takes!

10 Steps to Shooting a Bow

“In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the centre of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself”

Send an email to to get more details or ask any questions. Archery can teach you so much about yourself. Come and try it out!

Some Good News this Week!

Category : FC Youth News


Hey FC Parents & Kids,

There still is no word about when we can get back to our regular training at FightClub for the youth program but hopefully soon. I’ll keep you all posted as information becomes available. As far as the Live Online Training Sessions goes things are going great. I can see the kids absorbing the information I’m giving them. Trying to make the sessions, not just activity-based (Movement & Breathing) but also informative (Systema Methodology) and education (Life Lessons).

Check out a little video clip from Wednesday’s Class … Youth Live Online Training!

Some Good News this week!

The government has lifted some of its restrictions. As of Friday, May 22nd the FightClub Archery Range will be re-opened.

Many of you have asked about getting your kids started in the FightClub Archery Program – so now is a perfect time. They need to complete a few Introductory Archery Lessons first and then successfully pass the Safety Testing before they can join the weekly Archery program on Mondays and Fridays.

You can book your Two Introductory Archery Sessions today by emailing me at I am available throughout the day and weekends and can teach 2-3 kids at the same time (while still maintaining social distancing). So brothers and sisters, cousins, family friends and get organized and learn together. Our bored kids have something they can finally do!



FightClub Archery Range will be Re-Opening!

Some good news!

The government has lifted some of its restrictions. As of Friday, May 22nd the FightClub Archery Range will be re-opened. The two classes on Friday are 5-6 pm for the Youth session and 6-7 pm for the Adult session.

We still have to exercise physical distancing, so only every second shooting lane will be open. (50% capacity rules) that means only 5 people can be downstairs at one time. (not 10-12 like last time). To accommodate I will need to add two more classes on Monday 5-6 pm for the Youth session and 6-7 pm for the Adult session.

I will need you to email me at and let me know which day (Monday or Friday) and times you would like to attend. So I can manage the 50% capacity rules. I will do my best to get everyone at least one day of shooting/lesson.


To be honest, it’s been a tough couple of months, but I’ve managed a lot better than others and for that, I am feeling truly blessed.

I’ve made some improvements to the range, I’m sure you will be pleased. I’m pretty proud of how your club is looking these days!

As always, if you would like to discuss anything in regards to archery program; please feel free to contact me at your convenience:

See you soon,
