Kids Archery Set
Archery practice used to be compulsory in England and Wales in the days when the longbow was the most
destructive weapon on the battlefield. These days archery is still popular all over the world. If you buy a kids
archery set for your children, you will be promoting a healthy sport that will develop upper body strength, hand /
eye co-ordination and concentration. You could do a lot worse than buying your child a kids archery set.
Kids Archery Set
Archery can be described as the art, practice, or skill of firing arrows from a bow. Archery has been, and still
is, used for hunting and combat, although these days it is more of a recreational activity. A person who is
interested in archery is called a toxophilite.
Archery is an excellent sport which can be practiced indoors and out and there are several different types of
bow from the very heavy longbow to a kids archery set.
Providing your child with a kids archery set will introduce him or her to a fascinating sport which can range
from hunting, through target practice to Zen Buddhism. In order to shoot a bow well, the archer need upper-body
strength, concentration, hand-eye co-ordination and inner peace.
It could be claimed that all sports require these skills, but Zen Buddhist monks practice archery, not football.
Giving a child a kids archery set could change his or her life and will certainly present opportunities that other
children will not have.
A kids archery set need not cost a lot of money and the arrows need not even have real tips, but the lessons to
be learned from them will be the same.
Compound Hunting Bows
Compound hunting bows are a modern type of bow using a levering system of cables and pulleys to bend the bow's
limbs, which are usually much stiffer than those of a traditional recurve bow or longbow. The original design of
compound hunting bows was developed as recently as 1966 by Holless Wilbur Allen in Missouri.

Archery Recurve Bows
The tips of an archery recurve bow curve away from the archer when the bow is unstrung. This gives it an odd
appearance to the novice and has lead to some people stringing archery recurve bows the wrong way, which will often
snap them, especially if the archery recurve bow is drawn to fire an arrow.
