Lars Andersen: a new level of archery

The ultimate archery trick. Proving that Hollywood archery is not historical.

Lars Andersen in Bridgestone commercial


Article in OutdoorHub


Press release:



DO I HIT EVERYHING?
I use a LOT of time practicing, and every time I set out to learn a new skill, a new trick or how to handle a new type of bow or arrow, it takes a long time, with plenty of misses. When I got the idea of grabbing an arrow in flight and firing before I landed, it took me months to learn. For a long time, arrows flew everywhere!
But there's no trick in the video that I haven't done many times (except for splitting the arrow in flight – after I'd done that once I finished the video). The one with hitting the blade I've only done three times, though. All that running hurt my knees. ;-)

THE BACK QUIVER
Hollywood of course did not invent the back quiver, but they spread the myth it was proper archery!
Many asked why I do not use a back quiver and that is why I am showing my own experience, how bad it is in motion.
There are many different historical variatoner of back quiver and they have of course been used, but presumably belt quiver was more common and some archers did not use quiver.

TARGET PLATES
Past archers obvious used fixed targets, but not the modern round divided two dimensional.

ON MY BOWS AND POWER
Many people talk about how what I do is only possible because I use bows that are less powerful than English longbows. They are correct. I'm 50 years old, and have been doing archery for only ten years. I'll never be able to shoot really fast with 100 lbs+ war bows. I tried, but it just produced injuries. Had I started at age 10, it would have been a different story. ;-)

There is also a tendency from critics to assume that bows were always shoot against plate armour (as at Crecy in 1346 and Agincourt in 1415). This was very much the exception. Many opponents had little or no armour at all, and Stone Age findings show that many animals were taken down by multiple shots. Also, in 1923 Saxton T Pope examined a number of historical museum bows from around the world. His conclusion was that most only had a tensile strength of 45-50 pounds.

THE CHAINMAIL TEST
Around 04:22 I penetrate chainmail. The arrows had bodkin tips, and the chainmail is riveted. However, while the gambeson is thick, it's not as thick as some I've seen elsewhere. But one reason the arrows penetrate is that I sharpen not only the tip itself, but also the edges of the bodkin tip.

SHOOTING ON THE RIGHT SIDE
There are archery traditions alive today which shoot the arrow on the right side of the bow, as I do. However, the places where most people come into contact with archery (Hollywood, The Olympics, archery clubs) do it left around the bow.

THE THREE LEVELS OF ARROW HANDLING
It is obvious much more complicated, We can not know what the first archers did, some of the earliest pictures show arrows in the bow hand, but the arrow is much older than the bow so the quiver may be used and it is impossible entirely exclude that the first archer held his shafts in the draw hand.
In some parts of history is progress gone in the 3 levels, but other times the opposite has happened. Some archers are gone from arrows in the draw hand to the avancerde rapid fire quiver that was developed just before war archery disappeared.

Hit an incoming arrow!!
You don't have time to aim or think, but can only do it if your reactions are completely instinctive. First of all, you need to be convinced that you WILL hit it, so you can “feel” the incoming arrow and fire at it instead of just flinching away.

I was also in doubt whether it was smart to show this, because I don't want anyone to get hurt trying to copy the trick. I trained for years with soft boffer arrows and spent a LONG time before I tried it even the first time. And the arrow shoot at me was not shoot with a very powerful bow, though it was definitely dangerous enough!

I didn't think it was possible to split an arrow!
It was a light bamboo arrow with a metal tip, and the arrow I shot back was a heavier aluminum arrow. That the arrow split was just pure luck, and I'm not certain I could repeat it without first training for a long time. I believe it split because it hit just behind the head and made the shafts fluctuate against each other, causing the bamboo shaft to split lengthwise.

I hope to try it again using a proper high-speed camera!

FINAL WORDS
Thank you for watching my videos and for reading.
I will remove rude and dumb comments.
I will also remove dumb “archery experts” comments.

Archery | Why Do Olympic Archers Swing Their Bows?

First time watching the Olympic Games and wondering why the archers keep spinning their bows?

Further viewing: Do You Have to Drop the Bow?


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q: What's the tl;dw version?
A: Olympic archers don't grip their bows. The bows are allowed to fall away, and swings because they are weighted and held by a sling.

Q: Why don't the Huns / English Longbowmen / Mongols / Hawkeye / Hanzo do this?
A: This is a precision shooting method, only used for sport target archery. Nearly every other field of archery requires a practical method of retaining the bow (i.e. NOT letting go).

Q: Can you be accurate without dropping the bow?
A: Yes. However, the context is important. An Olympic archer is trying to hit a DVD-sized bullseye at 70m. Involuntary movement in the bow arm and hand can result in a poor shot. Practical archery typically involves larger targets at closer distances, where pinpoint accuracy is not expected or needed.

Q: Can't they just catch the bow?
A: The bow's rotation happens faster than it looks. The archer is focused entirely on the shot process and is in the middle of the follow-through. The body is in a state of relaxation. In this moment, the archer is following the flight of the arrow and reflecting on the shot. The archer doesn't care where the bow ends; only where the arrow does.

Q: What's all that stuff on the bow?
A:

Lars Andersen Epic Archery Episode 3

The most amazing archery ever, is described in the Sanskrit epics of ancient India: Mahabharata.
Lars Andersen tries to perform these tricks.

Of course this is not historical archery, but Mahabharata is clearly written by people with great knowledge about archery and knowledge about real historical archery heroes.

Something described may in one way originate in real events that are exaggerated a lot.

I has been trying for several years if these described tricks can be performed in reality

Shoot multiple arrows at the same time:
(also described in other writings)
Whether it's historical reality can be discussed, it can be done but has a lot of problems
If 3 arrows are shot at the same time, it takes a long time to make the arrows clear, they do not have much power and not high accuracy.
3 arrows shot quickly after each other, can be done faster far more precisely and with very high power.
Perhaps it's extreme fast shooting that is seen as shooting simultaneous arrows?

Hit a rotating fish in the eye by looking at a reflection:

I tried and it was surprisingly easier than expected
The arrow could certainly have hit more in the middle of the eye, but since the purpose was only to show it could be done so it was not done again.


Hit different things in the air are often described in mahabharata
sword arrows wagon wheel etc.

Please do not try this,ever!!!!!
I had been training hard for years before I even started thinking about this, so do not try yourself.


Hit a machete so it stops:
It could be done but is so unpleasant that I never do it again.

Hit an arrow in the air:
When I first read about this he thought it was impossible, and never anything that was done in history.
But now I has done so many times the last year, so it may be considered whether there may also have been a few Indian historical super archers who have learned the same.
But even if some have, it still very doubtful whether it has been practically applicable as anything but choice for performance trick archery.

The painting 0:55 is from the exciting MAHABHARATA project

Many ask about equipment:
I always build my arrows myself, not modern standard arrows
but different reproductions of historical arrows.
The bows used in this video Végh bow 53 # 28
Grózer 49 # 28 and some homemade bows.

Criticism is good
But i remove hateful not funny comments.
I also remove negative and incorrect comments from people who think themselves to be archery experts, but do not know history, physical laws etc..

Sincerely
Lars Andersen
