Amazing, reminds me of when I was a kid in 4-H.   At camp we got to see Rev. Stacy Groscup put on an exhibition.   He shot an aspirin out of the air!  This guy is insanely good!

That's pretty cool.

Please folks, start putting descriptions with your video links or I'll have to take them down according to the forum rules.

No worries, but it probably helped in my decision that archery is one of my 13 in 13.  ;)

Nice Video! I'm thinking of archery for one of my 13 in 13 as well specifically I'm thinking of the crossbow. (probably all the zombie killing in the walking dead. love that show!)

Three cheers for the proper and methodical study/rediscovering of ancient knowledge of the sort which we never should have allowed ourselves to have lost in the first place. 8)

with his rediscovered technique, he proves that proper technique isn't necessarily the best technique.

This is true for just about everything.

I just found this video last night and came over here to see if someone else had already posted it.

I shoot Japanese archery (Kyudo) and in the time it takes me to make one shot, he gets off seven. Pretty cool.
In all fairness to Kyudo though, it's a martial art and is meant to be slow.

For all you archers, notice the asymmetry of the grip, the length of the arrow, NO wrist protection (don't need it) and the string is drawn past the ear.

The bow is about 7' long, and is sized to the archer. So a shorter person would have a shorter bow.
My arrow is between 36 and 37 inches in length. Traditionally the bow (Yumi) is made from bamboo with a hardwood inner core, however they can be made from more modern materials. Here in Nevada a bamboo bow would be very hard to take care of because of the dry climate so we use composites of wood and fiberglass.
The arrows (Ya) are also traditionally made from bamboo, however aluminum or carbon fiber are quite popular.
The Fletching is usually from a turkey though in Japan they use sea eagle feathers.

Earlier I mentioned a wrist guard isn't needed. That's because of the dynamics of the shot. The arrow rests on the outside of the bow for starters, also the bow is gripped in a way that permits the bow to spin around in the hand. When one gets good at it, the string will bounce off the back of the wrist, having traveled almost 360 degrees.

Your welcome, as I said it's a martial art and has almost no practical application. There are hunting tips available, and some day I may give it a go with smaller game.

Amazing!  Wish I could do that with my crossbow.
