If you have always wanted to learn archery, but you never had the opportunity to learn how to shoot a bow, now is the time to find the training you want. You will find that there are several different options when it comes to finding someone to train you.
First, if you happen to know someone who is an archer, you can always ask him or her if they will be able to offer you some lessons. Even if you know the person well, it is good form to offer payment for their training services. After all, they are teaching you a skill that you want to know, and even if they are willing to do it free of charge, you should provide some type of compensation. Even taking them out to dinner to thank them is a nice touch.
Second, if you don’t know anyone who is into archery personally, you can always head to the Internet to find lessons in your area. Most large cities are going to have trainers and even clubs where archers can meet and connect. The training cost varies depending on the type of archery you are trying to learn – Olympic versus hobby, for instance. Make sure that the trainer you hire understands your goals and skill level.
There are also a number of books and even archery training videos available, and you should pick up a few to learn the basics. However, even the best book in the world isn’t going to be an adequate substitute for a teacher that you are able to visit in person.
