Sorry this has been a slow posting time. I have been sick for almost a month now (and quite tired of being so). Steve

I bit on a book offered on Amazon.com entitled: Mastery of Re-curve Bow Shooting: Full Guide to Learn as Well as Master Re-curve Bow Shooting; Shoot Just Like a Pro with Precision Plus Accuracy by Kenny B.A. Hardwood
Since it was only $3.99 in the Kindle version, I though I would take a look. If it was any good, I might be able to recommend it to you and my students.
The book is very, very short and seems to have been written by someone whose mother tongue is not English. I found quite a bit of it to be undecipherable. Here are some excerpts:
“This is a fascinating guide and a perfect introduction to the way to shoot a re-curve bow. There are more details concerned with the shooting methods or techniques, or better still stuff you will do to make your aim perfect one. The goal of this guide is to provide you a basic step by step guide so you don’t find yourself scratching your head once get your initial re-curve bow and conceive to shoot it.”
and . . .
“Also, ever-suffering sinistrals (left-handers? SR) can probably be experienced at swapping right for left. Besides, the steering is aimed toward curve target archers.
*Your stance or the stance is poor
*The string hits your arm
*You grip the bow too firmly or tightly
*You do not perpetually anchor within the same place
*You do not check the string image
*You do not meditate enough.”
and . . .
“Normal recommendation for born bow arms is to line up early, and to stay up aim throughout the shot – the sight need to air the target and stable, but not managed stiffly once you unhitch, and you need to be looking the arrows in the centre.”
If I am missing something here and you have read and understood this book, I will be quite glad to hear from you.
