  1. "After she has gotten her posture"…
    You don't say how she does this or even show what correct posture is.
    Correct posture is the basis of every shot and if it's not right then the shot will not be right.
    Even the action of standing correctly is something that has to be explained in detail and practised again and again to get right.
    Posture has to be right before you even think of fitting an arrow to the bow or the whole shot is doomed to inconstancy.

  2. great video but can you make your videos longer. it seems kind of rushed.. like your trying to explain everything real fast. I find myself pausing
    the video a lot to watch her forms and techniques. I love your style though

  3. When you get to the point of releasing the string, is it a rapid conscious release or a gradual release until the string releases upon its own?

  4. I like the style this video was shot in with the imaginary lines very sightful how ever releasing your bow like that every time not a good idea for your wrist muscles why she did that I have no idea. But instinct tells me thatโ€™s not how you shoot.

  5. I have a few questions sorry for my grammar im dyslexic so here goes, i'm just starting archery my coach says i need my bow arm in line with my shoulder to reduce pressure but when i go to take a shot looking through the sight ring my arm is at 1 o clock not 12 as it was in line with my shoulder.2 because im shooting at 1 o clock my shoulder some times is sore is this due to the wrong shooting line or is it due to lack of shoulder strength ?? 3 all so my coach says i need my pull back to the centre of my chin and rest on my nose but it seems that im resting the bow string on my chin and moving my head down to touch my nose can you give me some tips on how to remedy these problems any reply would be grateful fingers crossed as its a 15 month old clip

  6. Looks like The Matrix training software. I was expecting him to say "let's see how you deal with a live target".
    Cool video!

  7. Please keep camera to subject executing task instead of speaker. It would aid visually as audio is continuous already

  8. I have a question, Can I use this PERFECT video in my Instagram account?
    Obviously giving you rights in the description and tagging you. I work with an archery company and you are perfect. Please, I need your answer
    We are @legend_archery

  9. I get those attachments make the bow more accurate, but I'd much prefer the traditional recure bow with just a bow and string.
    Makes me feel, I dunno, more like an old fashioned archer, even if it's not as good

  10. Holding that long, makes it muscles tense, which makes your shot inaccurate. Never draw for more than 2 seconds, ur accuracy will suck

  11. It's somewhat different if you're shooting on the correct side of the limb. The right side. Then the fletching should be facing away. You're also more accurate if you shoot on the correct side of the limb. You also don't need idiotic arm protection when you use the correct side of the limb.
