You will submerge in a zen-like atmosphere of traditional archery practice, and learn warrior exercises for strengthening the body and mind. You will shoot from various positions and hit targets from different distances. Meditation is a part of the experience. Learn how Confucius and his followers used the art of archery to gain more power over the self. We will also practice some self-defense techniques, conditioning, and stretching.
Bow, arrows, and glove
We will practice archery in a large indoor martial arts studio and archery range on Saturdays. On other days of the week we can meet at the outdoor range, where the natural beauty and LA weather gives an opportunity to absorb the experience on a deeper level.
