This is Ongoing Help This video is not a 'view once and put on the shelf.' The material is very condensed. It is meant to be studied again and again. Also, a teacher or an archer can create a video of shooting and if taken from the same camera position, compare what the archer is doing to what is on the video. This can help tremendously when working for improvement.

This video was written and produced by Ruth Rowe, a retired international competitor, champion, record-holder, and teacher/coach.
