The Archer’s “T”

The Archers TIntroduction:

The Archer’s “T” is the foundation of your form and technique. Without a good foundation the rest of your Technique will crumble. The Archer’s “T” is the basis of which your stance, aim, pull, release and follow through derive. In this video tutorial we will be demonstrating the Archer’s “T”

The Archer’s T

  1. Stand with your feet at shoulder length apart.
  2. Stretch out your arms to the side so that they are parallel to the ground.
  3. Draw an imaginary line down the center of your body from your head to the ground.
  4. Draw another imaginary line from the tip of one hand, across the body, to the tip of the other hand.
  5. These imaginary lines make up your Archer’s “T”
  6. All of your actions will move along these lines.

Demonstration:

  1. Position your feet so that your stiff arm will be pointing at the target.
  2. Position your arms as you did for the Archer’s “T”
  3. Turn your head so that you will be looking strait down your stiff arm.
  4. Pull the string back on your bow until you reach your anchor point.  Do this as if your string hand is following that imaginary line that you made across your body.
  5. Notice that even your elbow follows this imaginary line
  6. When you release your string, your follow through should continue back along that line.

Checklist:

  1. Feet shoulder length apart
  2. Turn Your Head
  3. Draw Back
  4. Anchor
  5. Release
  6. Follow Through

Summary:

Remember that this is a basic starting point for your stance.  There are several variations that may be applied.  it’s just a matter of figuring out what works best for you.  Practice hard and have fun.
