Available Styles


Target Recurve

Also known as Olympic Recurve, this style is best for those who are looking to improve their skills on a modern style recurve bow with a sight. This class covers more advanced form techniques to help students develop a consistent and repeatable shot routine. We also provide details on finding the right equipment to fit the needs and goals of each individual. If you think you may be interested in competition, or perhaps joining Gotham Archery League, this may be a class for you.


If you have a preference for a more old school style of archery, or just simply find the sight on the side of your recurve annoying, the Traditional/Barebow class is for you. In this course we will teach you a few different methods of shooting without a sight, as well as, a few nuances between traditional wooden style bows and more modern aluminum bows.


In our Compound class, the main focus will be switching from drawing and releasing the string with fingers, to utilizing a mechanical release. Compound archery has two main paths, hunting or target, and we will touch on characteristics between the respective bow types. If you’re looking for a bow that will give you pinpoint accuracy with power and speed, this is the class for you.


If you want to connect with archery at its roots, the Horsebow class is for you. This class puts the focus more on the art of archery, and less on the competitive sport aspect. This is the bow of Canghis Khan, the bow that powered the Ottoman Empire, and the bow that stopped the Romans from expanding to the East. Whether shot from horseback, from behind a castle wall, or an ancient mountain temple, this is the modern bow of the course of history for generations ancient times responsible for steering the course of history for generations. Of course, we will practice with the Horsebow safely and solely for recreation, while learning proper form and draw techniques.
