Archery videos

Grade 10’s, see the below Archery “How To” videos for some valuable tips.  The instructor is Nu Sensei and his descriptions of technique are broken down well for beginners. Note, he stresses to NEVER draw and release a string without an arrow in it. It is called Dry Firing and is very bad for the bow.

You have two more classes left to practice. Skills assessment runs Monday. November 27th
