Korean TV Special

Question:

It took four days to make a twenty minute segment on Korean archery for the Korean TV network KBS.  There were some small errors (translated subtitles, mainly), but it was, overall, pretty good. http://wwwk.dongguk.ac.kr/~bluelake/goongdo.wmv The resolution is a bit grainy, as the file size had to be kept as low as possible, but it isn’t too bad.  The show is supposed to air internationally, but I don’t know when (I was told it was supposed to be at the same time it aired here in Korea, but I heard from others that it didn’t); so, you might see it in broadcast quality at some point.  It was made in conjunction with the World Cup competition going on here in Korea, so it might be shown at some point during the World Cup on the stations carrying it.

<footsteps scurrying for cover to watch Pete shoot from a safe distance> If you shoot like that, I’m sure the target will be safe. ;o) You’ll be making thumb rings next…

Response:

Does illustrate my problem though. To get the draw onto my back, thats where my hand ends up (in a mime) With my hand further forward, the back is not doing the job properly. Advice? (Thinking about it, my arrows would not be long enough. ARCs piccies of overdraw accident are scary) Pete

Response:

  FITA type target shooting with a Recurve?? If so your "anchor" point should be with your first finger under your chin or the forward part of your jaw, string touching the center of your nose.   Compound with a release or "Traditional" would be different… — —– John Howland —–

Response:

If I do that (As I have been since I started in february) My elbow sticks out & my back has very little to do with anything. When I mime without my bow, I feel my shoulders working as my draw elbow comes into a straight line with my bow hand. My draw hand ends up by my lugole (ear!)

Pete – there is a book on archery anatomy (that’t the title)-  if you get that, and review all it has to say, AND you are in general conformance with it, then if your hand STILL ends up back by your ear, then you are merely "built that way" , and that is FINE.   We are all of us constructed of various pieces that are NOT the same, and there is a lot of variables that mean that for many things there is no definite "RIGHT" way to accomplish something. http://www.alltheweb.com/search?cat=web&cs=iso-8859-1&l=any&q=%22arch… – Hide quoted text — Show quoted text – > If I do that (As I have been since I started in february) > My elbow sticks out & my back has very little to do with anything. > When I mime without my bow, I feel my shoulders working as my > draw elbow comes into a straight line with my bow hand. > My draw hand ends up by my lugole (ear!) >   FITA type target shooting with a Recurve??
