Archery - Fast Shooting (Murmansk)

by SeregedelReal • 7,323,937 views

a dagger technique Seregedel's school Initially I named this technique "kinzhalnaya" (Adjective from a word "kinzhal"(dagger)) because a dagger it is possible to beat faster than a sword, but,...

To all the people bashing archery with gun comments, you sound ignorant. Guns are obviously more lethal and hands down better for defense. Archery is a hobby just like shooting a gun and the gun range. It takes more practice to perfect and some people enjoy it. Like bow fishing or bow hunting, the added challenge can make it more interesting and offer a better feeling of a reward. Another big difference for archery is that arrows are reusable making them much cheaper than ammo which gives you more time to practice for less cash.
Archery requires skill but many traditions of archery have been lost. Speed shooting is largely forgotten, however an archer called Lars Andersen has discovered a technique that is far faster, so much so that he can shoot three arrows accurately in under 1.5 seconds by using a single motion to load draw and shoot. The arrow therefore rests on the outer part of the hand rather than the inner.
You're right, Daniel, about what could be called the "sustainability" of archery over that of guns.  Yet, slinging is even more sustainable than archery.  Ancient slingers are said to have been able to hit targets up to 400 yards away!  That's hard for probably most archers to accomplish.  Certainly, most slingers might not be able to do it either but, the skills have to be developed for slinging, just as with archery (or gunnery, for that matter).  How much more readily available, reusable and unexhaustible are stones than arrows which have to be carefully made (though arrows can be resuable and, are more possible for anyone to make than are modern bullets)?  Sure, guns have ranges of, potentially, some three miles (but necessitating expert sharpshooter skill to hit a target at that range).  Many can't hit a target with a rifle, even fewer with a pistol, even within arrowshot range.  A good archer, especially one with Lars Andersen's skill, could outshoot a gunner (or even more than one!).  Most people like guns because it's assumed that no skill or effort is needed to have superior power at one's disposal.  Most also expect to waste lots of gunshots because of bad aim in order to hit their target.  That's the appeal of automatic firing.  That's also an acute example of the sustainability and likely superiority of both archery and slinging over gunnery, especially if good armor is borne by the archer or slinger, made even more effective by being a moving target.
Just in case you buy into the Lars Anderson archery thing as anything more than a trick shooter making ridiculous claims, here is an actual speed shooter, and you'll note that nocking the arrow on the left is no slower than on the right. Plus, she does it whilst moving around too. This video is something like three years old, she is the student*, and is being trained in a known methodology/philosophy. *I believe; looking at the other videos on the channel
just as someone sayibn the 1st com: " It takes her much more time to draw arrow from a quiver and shoot, than it takes Anderson" + we do not know the target... if it s a target or a simple wall ... i could quickdraw and shot to a wall too  when i get used to a bow .. the impressive thing about L.Anderson is that he can do it and still aim perfectly. edit: and the answer is: a simple wall ! :D ..
Yes, she's good and have been practicing, but its a 10-15 lb. bow, not much more than a toy
"Why use bows when we have guns." - Some just prefer to use bows (some just get more of a kick out of bows than guns). - Many countries (example i live in Australia) you need licences for guns and not for bows.  - In many cases it is cheaper to buy a bow - Easier to manage - Quiet for hunting - Reusable ammo
Another attribute of arrows, that is sometimes considered a military advantage, is that the arrow does not deform when it hits a person, so it remains sharp, and can (if the bow is powerful enough) continue to pierce through several people behind the first person. Bullets deform and fragment when they hit (to cause more damage and injury), but this makes it very difficult for the same bullet to continue piercing after hitting the first target.
nice work but slow…. she is an Amateur compared to real fast shooters,check out Lars Andersen what he does with a bow and arrow is Astounding….
+Corey G your childish insult is a great reflection of your own intelligence….
Someone should tell her that Americans now have gunpowder.
+Legion Long Yeap, I tend to agree. It has been an interesting exchange. All the best. 
Sorry. I'm not going to tell her anything that might potentially piss her off.
slow as balls. nothing special here. now lars anderson can shoot
+Tavor57 Well each to their own opinions I suppose. It's nice having a conversation with someone in the comments that doesn't devolve into name-calling! :)

Oh, just for you to know, this still is my favourite "fast archery" video. Her form, grace and rythmic consistency never stop to fascinate me.
Well, if there's ever a Zombie Apocalypse, I know who I'm looking up first for my survival team. XD
+Kami Nana awww shucks i had second thoughts & figured you had been trying to warn us in your own round about way that it might actually be happening.... <(>_>)> like really.... <(<_<)>  (encase anyone missed the sarcasm it was sarcasm :P LOL in a well natured sort of way :P
+Kami Nana It may happen tho. Maybe it won't be exactly like in most zombie movies, but it is indeed possible that humans get infected by something that forces us to behave in a very aggressive and violent way. There is a parasite that can only reproduce in felines, so it can target rats and make them attracted to cat pee. Literary forcing them to death. Humans can also get infected by this and it doesn't do much to us, but a study showed that those infected actually enjoyed the smell of cat pee. If a parasite can alter our brain to that extent, it can alter it to make us behave like zombies as well. So never rule out the possibility of a "zombie apocalypse". If it ever do happen tho and we meet, we can migrate teams if your team is resourceful. That is my minimum criteria otherwise I just end up weakening my own team. To get rid of weak links is always up for discussion tho.
Yu Knu Nuthing Jon Snu! Try shooting like this with a 70 pound draw weight.
+Cryogenius333 Simple, because to kill anything you have to hit a spot smaller than an 8x8 rug. Semper Fi
Anyone know where I can get a bow like that? Specifically hers. 
That is a Mongolian style re curve bow.  Go to (I am unaffiliated with them) and search for their "Mongolian Bow."   This style of bow was made to shoot from horseback.  She's using a horse style bow, but not a horseback style draw.
in the toy section.
Good to see the arrows actually getting pulled back far enough, a lot of speed shooting they barely draw the bow at all.
people pull back half way for practical purposes.
Sorry, not as fast as Lars, and she does not hold arrows in her draw hand and has to reach in a quiver. Why the snotty comments about Lars? I see that holding the arrows in your draw hand and firing on the right make sense and are demonstrated in historical illustrations.
I don't have an issue with Andersen, I honestly believe he is one of the most skilled individuals I have ever seen, I just have a problem with people who have come to this video (and others) after watching Lars' short video believing themselves to be some kind of expert when their knowledge of archery is based on that video and that video alone.
+quakekill Yes! So many Arrow and Hunger Games fans all of the sudden think they know everything because they've seen his video. If they see anything that Lars didn't do, that person is all of the sudden a terrible archer. They don't understand he only works with one type of archery when there are so many more.
Archery is an art, it is not replaceable by guns. Why don't we just replace talking with texting? Just because people have newer things does not mean they are replacements. Guns are louder, more hazardous, less personal and less beautiful. I am not saying that bows are better than guns, although to me, they are preferable in terms of what should be used, unless you are excited about just killing things. If you are concerned with the efficiency of just killing things, then guns have many advantages. But if you are actually interested in weapon use as an art and hobby, guns have basically no advantage. Expensive expendable ammunition, very high chance of underestimating penetration power, resulting in increased hazards. Common ricocheting, loud banging noise and large recoil, very high mass production and therefore, more uniform and less unique designs. Bows have none of these properties. I am an archer, My birth name is Robin Hood, and I respect archery for the skill it requires. If weapons are to be used as an art and hobby, I think increased skill requirement should be a welcome quality.
Actually silencers aren't made to silence the shot but is used to make the shot sound like something that is not a gunshot
Silencers are made to prevent people from being alarmed by the gun shot.

Warrior Elf doing her thing
how does she notch them so fast?
+Jake J. Rogers I hope English is your second language and everything you tried to say was completely lost in translation.
+ConfrontationalRealist I hope you're just somebody who stumbled across Lars' video, and doesn't assume anything he says is realistic. 
This always amazes me. This would be impossible with a compound bow. That's why in the Zombie Apocalypse you use a recurve, long bow, or short bow. For range a long bow, recurve, for speed, short bow, recurve. Every bow has a use. It's like taking a hand gun to an assault rifle fight! Note: Compound are for hunting and target shooting, not fast shooting. If someone could use a compound that way, i'd love to see
Modern Bow fishing compounds have zero let off and work like a traditional bow.
Hmm... i'll look for that, but I have yet to come across a zero let off.. My bow was made in 1980 it has a 70%, but zero? WOW that would be something!
Loved to have had her as a snowball partner as a kid.
Theres lots comparing against "guns" and I cannot decide whom sounds the most ignorant, but the race is clearly on with no lack of strong contenders... :) I have trained and competed with most ballistic sports equipment, been in the army, most of my friends compete in various "shooting" sports and so forth. Having decades of experience I have never come across so many assertions that I never ever heard before as in this expert thread. It is actually quite amusing to follow the expert opinions, btw many thanks for the entertainment. A few of the things I would like the experts to develop, 1/ How come you think it takes more skill to shoot a bow than a pistol, and that a recurve takes even more skill? (Practicing all above, I always felt that the recurve having much less weight fully drawn is much easier to hold longer and aim. And pistol shooting would clearly be the hardest skill of all three to master for several obvious reasons, I been trying for over 3 decades to do so... but what do I know) 2/ Please elaborate on why real bows would be safer and more suitable for children than BB rifles? (A bow has a surprising stopping power foremost due to the fact that an arrow is extremely much heavier than a BB. Arrows prolly at least or even more as dangerous as a bullit fired from a REAL gun. In real life I know a lot of nasty shit accidents happened with bows with severe damage or worse outcome. I do not think I can count the eyesights that got damaged from derailed recurve bowstrings. On the other hand not much to mention from BBs other than they sting if a kid caps you in the ass. Real sidearms/rifles disqualifies due to literally no accidents because of the rigorous safety protocols at play. But this is just from personal experiences and pretty deep knowledge in Swedens statistics.) 3/ Guns slaps you in the face? (I love these hilarious expert opinions, they sure put a smile to my face. If you manage to fire a rifle or a pistol and it slaps you in the face, YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG LIKE YOU GET TO BE A HERO ON A MOTIVATIONAL POSTER SCALE. You should either apply for a job at Monthy Pythons flying circus or apply for a special olympics grant.) I would really love the authors of these and more expert opinions to elaborate on their funny teachings. For now, I have to read some more funny shit :)) But seriously, join some clubs and enjoy all of them and more - archery (bows, recurves, crossbows) pistol club, rifle club, air shooting clubs whatever and have fun, meet friends, and get educated instead of blabbing hilarious stupidities. ;)
It's pretty hard to get shot by an arrow from a bow without it being intentionally nocked, drawn and loosed by someone.  Guns have killed many by just getting bumped, dropped or even babies misusing them for toys (read the news).  Yes, you can stab someone with or fall on an arrow but, it's hard for someone across a room--or a mile away--to get hit by an arrow that isn't shot intentionally.  Of course, someone with wild aim, or goofing around with a bow and arrow,,, well....   You can get killed by a BB to the eye--just like with an arrow, though, yes, an arrow doesn't have to be in the eye to be lethal.  You're correct that a pistol is likely harder to master than a bow and arrow.  Old Army .45s recoil so hard, it's iffy if many could hit a barn with one--even while leaning on the barn!
+Englishkin I suppose we are dealing with some geographical differencies here. No babies are allowed to use loaded firearms as toys in Sweden. Where are you from again? Bullet or arrow astray, I cant see a difference? Regarding dropping and bumping guns... Firearms are licensed here and can only be loaded and used at ranges, bows are free from license excepting crossbows. Statistically it is virtually unheard of a firearm projectile going astray and do personal damage in Sweden. Bows are unfortunately a whole other matter I am afraid. I can link the statistics if you like or you can just google it. Otherwise we seem to agree on most stuff, I did not know you could be killed by a BB though? You seem well informed on the old army .45s, I have been trying to master one for many a years now. Even put up some videos on the tube of my humble efforts. I think the most important thing is to be safe and use our short time on earth to have as much fun as possible and allow others to do the same. Wish you a wonderful day mates :)
Some say Windrunner is merely a hero from DotA 2 and doesn't exist......this video proves it wrong. ......come on, she's even Russian!
Maybe because I am getting a lot older and have more traditional views on archery, but I can't seem to figure out why so many people hold trick shooting, speed shooting, etc. in such high regard. Anyone that's used a bow that properly matches their strength knows it's not that easy to just keep pulling it back. As I got stronger, I simply added more weight. It never really occurred to me to drop down half of what my potential was so I could loose arrows at targets faster.  I dunno, the most enjoyable part of archery for me was spending time with family during practice or during hunting trips. The olympic-esque side of archery never appealed to me.

Still one name stands among the rest. LARS ANDERSEN .. search his videos and ready to be amazed. :)
circus want to see some real archery watch an old Howard Hill movie short.
I just watch how her boobs juggle when she shoots. Mmmm...
Who's gorgeous AND deadly? Maybe a great great great grand daughter of old Ghengis himself.
That's not how you fast shoot. She is any even aiming
ok, post your video of you doing it better
How do you nock the arrows instantly like that? 
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!! Lars Anderson beat you by far. you just stand there shooting at a little bullseye while he shoots incoming arrows in two. And on top of that, he shoots way faster. Oh my god, this is so outdated.
I used to be an archer like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee.
she's using Pinch draw right?
what the hell, the video didnt even show whether the archer hit the mark or not
she can join my party anytime......
She's quick, but what draw weight does that bow have? 5 lbs?
.. Damn, cupid just shot me with one of her arrows.
What type of bow does she use?
Shit. Wind Runner - Aleria is real!
If only guns were that easy to reload...stick a bullet and press the trigger .
Also look at 0:20. (Gets arrow from quiver drops it back gets it again.)
her accuracy is shitty! she is hitting all over the place.
What's the pull weight of the bow? curious
I bet its no more than 20lbs
With the speed she pulls it, I would think something like that, indeed.
lol, she is using a quiver wtf. faster keeping arrows in your draw hand.
Excellent observation there Legolas, you're now a qualified expert on archery because of a single video on youtube.
mis mis mis mis mis mis mis mis ....... mis mis mis ....... ...... mis mis mis
Really... I guarantee that none of you could shoot this quickly, stop criticizing, especially if you've never shot a bot before, it's much harder than it looks
*using back quiver. Your argument is invalid
Is there a name for what kind of bow she is using?
Its a horsebow, probably a mongolian horsebow, or turkish, google search horsebows and admire the craftsmanship in so many of the bows
But what is her name? So cute, yet so deadly... I'm in love!!..
so hawt its nice to see a recurve aswell, gets a bit silly with the compounds with a full optimus prime gettup of sights and clasps and grasps and shit
+1 red head +1 nice tits -1 butherface = +1
i like lars and i think anyone saying hes fake is full of shit. but people commenting on here saying shes doing it wrong or that this isn't how you speed shoot cause of the quiver and left side shooting all i have to say is look at the results .fuck your snobbery about methods the results are here . and plus her method works for her cant argue with it
Cute Russian woman that can make shooting a bow sexy... "I'd buy that for a dollar!" (Anyone who gets that movie reference gets +10 points.)
+Kain Highwind  Yea, i was pissed when I heard that in the movie. +10 points to you.

Archery - Fast Shooting (Murmansk):
Why would she have her quiver on her back? Why would she draw 1 arrow at a time just hold a bunch in your hand and you shoot double that speed.
Oh wow, you saw the Lars Anderson video too.
Well, there you go boys! She's definitely marriage material! lol
+Christian Prepper Oh my gosh I was about to tell you how she was missing. Just checked her Facebook page. She changed her FB pic last month.. Sorry.. :P
Glad to see people here not buying into the Lars Anderson fad. He's good, but he's not the best, or legendary as some "archers" (Hunger Games readers and Arrow watchers) think.
arr... i like how you keep it simple and fast
faster reloading than any other game :D
She should ditch the quiver, hold the arrows in one hand and nock the arrow on the other side of the bow for supreme speed. I know this because I saw the Lars Andersen video and now I'm an expert. :)
Unreal Archery - Fast Shooting 
I'm guessing 45# test... average for archers such as her. Pretty amazing is an understatement.
Is anyone able to tell me what bow she's using please?
Does anyone know if the arrows normal nocks have?
+Randall Jordan Thank you for your helpful answer. I was not quite clear whether this with a "normal" nock works.
Lars Anderson is laughing.
Iza > Lars, because tits.
+Tumoxa89 Thank you Tumox. Not what I had in mind but sure. Everyone loves bewbs.
Wanna go hunting.? i will skin them...!
Im learning archery and can someone please explain to me this style? I have been trained to hold my hand out straight for accuracy and consistency, how can you be accurate without an anchor point or locked elbow, is this the gun equivalent of hip firing ?does she stand completely sideways? please respond only if you know what you are talking about.
This style is more of a horse archery, without the horse. Takes lot of practice to load the arrow and do not use more than #35 bow because you will hurt your muscles. Best bows are the Hungarian, Mongolian type reflex bows. I can recommend Kassai or Grozer, but there are other good bow makers. If you like to see some horse archery then search for Kassai...
To slow watch anderson
yes yes that rug is dead now
Name and mark of the bow?
She's adorable!  Will you marry me?? :)
Sajnos gyenge és erőtlen..játék ok
That's pretty Cool. Now try it with a bow with a decent draw weight.
wow nice! Oo what kind of wooden bow is that? it want one like that! :)
Anyone else think this is a turn on? Wtf, this gets me horny. Weird.
what type of bow is that?
What is the arc model, plz ?
Okay, so this chick rocks

Archery - Fast Shooting (Murmansk): Woah! I am highly attracted to this person. 0//_//0
2.50 attack speed Ashe
Does anyone know her name?
Can anyone tell me the point of being able to shoot fast with a bow instead of accurately? This video just seems really irrelevant...
she is shooting accurately
She's hitting her mark, while strafing too, that's impressive.
Russian female legolas confirmed ALL PRAISE ARTEMIS!
Any amateur can pull a bunch of arrows and hit a wall... What would be impressive is if she can pull that many arrows quickly with the same grouping consistently.
by saying "not to sound like a dick" I suppose, lol!  it's whatever, lets move on
Now comparing to Lars Andersen, she look really slow.
Lars might be a faster archer, but she is a lot easier on the eyes lol
Suuure, you're fast.  But did you actually hit anything??
did you watch all the way thru?? she is incredibly consistent in her arrow placement. very tight clustering 
how is she stringing the arrow so quick? is it particular arrows? or just technique?
It would be both technique and particular arrows. She rolls the ends of her arrows to find the nock by feel with her thumb and index finger.  She keeps her hand inverted with her palm facing outward.  This gives her speed keeping thumb and index finger in same position holding the arrow.  The middle and ring fingers help with the draw.  Notice the arrows have a lot of space between the nock and fletching.  Arrows may be handmade to do that technique.
The arrows do not even penetrate that bit of carpet... Is that a 15lbs bow? Try that with a serious weapon, not with a toy ;)
Serious weapon. You mean compound or a over 40 lbs bow?
what type of bow is it
+blackdeath4eternity  I calls it a keyser bow.  Some folks calls it a sling bow but I calls it a keyser bow.
+kgsolomanfivethousan yeah, not surprised there would be a long list of names that people would call it, thats what i meant.
How heavy is the draw weight and how do you nock it that fast?? Maybe I'm just uncoordinated lol
She's shooting great, and she's beatiful too. Cute voice. :) Warrior princess. :)
What kind of bow is she using?
