Archery Classes will Officially Restart Friday

Category : FC Archery News

 

Hey FC Archers,

Archery classes will officially restart this Friday, September 11th. All spots are reserved and you should have received a confirmation message about your time and dates slots. Our first lesson will focus on developing a solid Stance.


Stance

How can I improve my archery stance?

The Feet

The foot that is behind the shooting line must remain parallel to the shooting line or slightly rotated a couple of degrees toward “down-range”. If the foot is rotated away from the target or opposite of the direction of shooting you will apply excessive loads on the knee and prohibit proper hip alignment.

The foot that is forward or down-range of the shooting line should be parallel to the line or slightly pointing in the direction of the target down-range. If your feet are spaced too close together or spaced too wide apart then you will become bilaterally unstable – meaning you will experience more swaying of the upper body and have less ability to hold your aim.

If your body weight is properly distributed, your feet should give you the sensation of being well planted firmly on the ground and you will experience less of a rocking sensation.

 

Posture

Posture is among the critical aspects of archery form and execution.

Proper archery posture facilitates better power transmission from your core muscles which gives you the strength to perform the shot execution many times over while maintaining consistent results without excess fatigue.

See you on the range,

emmanuel

Last Class for August & First Class for September

Category : FC Archery News

 

Hey FC Archers,

This Friday will be the last archery class for the month. We will restart classes in September (1st class being Sept. 11th). When you return to in September you will find lots of changes to the FightClub space, these were necessary changes as we adapt to our new reality.

Here is a little outline as to how the next three months will be organized. September, I will be teaching (and re-teaching) the basic archery skills, proper form, equipment maintenance, and building up some ’archery’ strength. October, I will be going over match/tournament archery rules and showing students how to build your own arrows. November, we will have a month-long tournament. December, 4th will be a medals ceremony (based on November’s tournament results) and Christmas party to end out the year.

* Parents … If your kids have any friends or family members interested in learning Archery. Now is a good time to start. For more information about the Archery Program please visit my website at http://www.fight-club.ca/toronto-archery/. Forward them this email and have them contact me at archery@fight-club.ca – There are only a few spots available so don’t hesitate.

Enjoying the Process

Category : FC Archery News

 

“One should approach all activities and situations with the same sincerity, the same intensity, and the same awareness that one has with bow and arrow in hand.” — Kenneth Kushner

We live in a world obsessed with results. Like Herrigel, we have a tendency to put so much emphasis on whether or not the arrow hits the target. If, however, we put that intensity and focus and sincerity into the process—where we place our feet, how we hold the bow, how we breathe during the release of the arrow—then hitting the bullseye is simply a side effect.

The point is not to worry about hitting the target. The point is to fall in love with the boredom of doing the work and embrace each piece of the process. The point is to take that moment of complete awareness and focus, and carry it with you everywhere in life.

It is not the target that matters. It is not the finish line that matters. It is the way we approach the goal that matters.

See you Friday on the FC range,

emmanuel

Posture & Alignment for Shooting a Bow

Category : FC Archery News

 

Hey FC Archers,

Here is a short video of what I was trying to show and teach you last night. Keep your spine straight and your shoulders flat and level. If you’re doing both of these things you will find your Aiming will improve because you will be able to hold on target much better. What the short video for a good explanation.
