This video is old and there is an Updated video
"Reinventing the fastest forgotten archery."
which also tries to answer many of the questions people have asked for this video.
I show it is possible to shoot 3 arrows at 1 ½ seconds.
Looking for someone who can do it faster ?
The first part of the video I shoot my old speed
in the second part of the video I shoot 3 arrows at 1 ½ seconds.
The book "Saracen Archery" An English translation of a Mameluke work on archery, written in the year 1368.
In this book are 3 test as ancient archers should be able to do:
1. A target test
2. A test of ballistic
3. And a test to show whether the archer was fast enough !
To pass the speed test, required to be able to shoot 3 arrows at less than 1 ½ seconds.
(third arrow must be in the air before the first arrow hits the target,
distance 60 bows = 69 meters,we can then calculate the time to 1 ½ seconds)
The last 3 years I have seriously trained to see how fast it is possible to shoot with bow, I try to find a speed limit but have not found it yet.
Why do I not show my technique?
If we accept that the historical source is true
(and there are also other sources)
Then there was in the past archers, who were able to shoot arrows at speeds less than 0.75 seconds for a new arrow and probably 0.5 seconds.
I have tried to study all the modern archers who shoot fast, there are many good and talented archers and many good systems.
But none of the modern systems I've seen can reach speeds near the historical.
So I started from scratch and has spent a long time trying until I found something that worked.
But I'm certainly not finished developing a system.
There are many mistakes, and I am no master, and much to be learned.
I currently have no intention to teach others something that is not finished.
Comments on my videos
I remove: profanity, stupid and not funny comments, childish criticism,
but I would like to have sensible adult criticism.
