Horsebow Archery is practiced at our dojo.
Horsebow archery 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 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.
We also offer for sale shuriken which are made by Rob Bascue Shihan.
Horsebows are around $200, arrows are $12 each and shuriken $10 each.
Visitors are welcome by appointment only.
