Gungdo "eagle" | 그리스의 한국 국궁 - 독수리

Just an other video of Gungdo shooting. I called it eagle because I was more like 160m distance rather than the usual 145m.

NOTE: This is the second upload. First one had a sound copyrights issue.

Gungdo practice

Stronger grip, quicker but shorter torque (not all the way around) for better arrow flight. Getting closer to ideal form. Need a little more forward khatra because the limbs don't bend evenly.

Gungdo - Proper follow through for optimum arrow flight

After months of trying to solve the problem of my arrows slapping the bow and thus flying sideways before they stabilize, I have come to the conclusion that not only the correct release but also the follow through actually effects the arrow flight more than one can assume. For the KTA I found essential to use both the torque technique and the technique pull the tiger's tail, push the high mountain in order to have a consistent arrow flight and direction. Roughly stated, you have to get the bow out of the arrow's path. On release everything happens instantly, but when your technique is correct, the mechanics of the torque and follow through have just began to take enough effect, on that very moment, and the result is proof of it's effectiveness. Not everybody needs to resort to this technique to accomplice the above wanted outcome, because there are many factors that play a role on the arrows flight, one of the most important ones is the archers paradox. Other archery styles use bows that are center shot and don't face the challenge of the archers paradox as much as the traditional bows without a shelf.

In KTA many archers hold the bow arm steady on release, but others use the techniques described above. In the following link you can watch the well known Kim Hyeong-tak shooting. Observe how he (in this video) moves his bow arm to the left on release and use torque technique:


Finally, we can find more examples, in other styles of archery, even in compound shooting, on similar follow throughs. One is in the following link:

Happy Summer wishes from Gungdo Greece!

160 yards Korean Archery shot

The original distance to the Gungdo target is 145 meters (about 158 yards). I shoot carbon .300 spine. The last arrow in the video, the one that has greater paradox (more flex) than the others, is only .340 aluminum.

Manchu Follow Through

There are three variations of the full swing Manchu follow through. The first has the draw hand with an open palm, the second a closed fist, and the third with the index finger straightened out with the other fingers closed. I tend to prefer the second because it's more consistent for me (still need to work on that). There are other types of follow through in Manchu archery, not all have the draw arm swing out full.
