Traditional Asiatic Horsebow Archery + Shuriken is offered as a stand alone class. Current class time is 7 PM to 8 PM on Sundays. Located at Tactical Budo Bujinkan Dojo, Spokane Valley, WA.
Cost is free for actively enrolled Taijutsu students, and $10 per class for everyone else.
This is a style of archery that was common in many Asian countries and used in ancient warfare.
The bow used is a short recurve bow usually referred to as a “Horsebow”, since it was frequently (but not always) used on horseback.
There is no arrow rest, and no nocking point. Shooting is done instinctively, and normally in rapid fire, shooting many arrows quickly one after another.
A skilled archer can rapid fire arrows, left and right handed, while in motion (either on horseback or while running on foot).
You may also visit Tactical Budo Bujinkan Dojo to purchase your own Horsebow as well as custom made arrows which are designed for this style of speed shooting archery.
Horsebows are around $150 to $200, and arrows are around $10 each.
You can also use our bows when you take the archery class on Sunday.
Visitors are welcome.
If you would like to participate in a class, just show up about 10 minutes early before class starts and we will get you signed up.
