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.

FightClub Archery Range will be Re-Opening!

Category : FC Archery News

 

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 em@fight-club.ca 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.


WELCOME BACK to Archery

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: archery@fight-club.ca

See you soon,

Important FC Archery Program Update

Category : FC Archery News

 

Hey FC Archers,

These are definitely unprecedented times that are upon us. Many of you have been asking me when the archery program can resume. The short and long answer is I do not know (I wish I did).

Never-the-less I have been working away making improvements to the archery range and working on archery learning and training videos.

Check them out … Ten Steps to Shooting.

 


I have a question for everyone …

Would you like to start live online archery lessons? 

If yes then I would need you to pick up your bows from FC plus I could give you all some exercise bands as well. I believe we could cover off a lot of archery form, theory, and technique without actually shooting the bow for about 6 weeks. By then, hopefully restrictions will be lifted and we can continue training at the range.

Please respond to me before May 15th.

Thank you,

emmanuel
