  • Learn to shoot the historical way!

    The traditional way of shooting a bow is very different to the modern methods simply due to the way the bow behaves and our experienced instructors are ready to pass their knowledge onto you!

    Our Master Classes can be tailored to absolute beginners or to those who are use to shooting, but want to learn how to be accurate with a longbow.

    Our courses can either be spread over a number of sessions or over a day depending on your needs and availability.

    Start by learning the basic technique in the shooting position before moving onto basic accuracy using traditional targets.

    All training will follow medieval disciplines as you learn the technique to shoot at speed to hit a man sized target 12 times in a minute.

    Before the course closes you will learn shooting at distance and how to use the other shooting positions available to a trained archer in the King’s Army.

  • Have you ever wanted to have a bow that you can really have true ownership over?

    Now Strike Archery is proud to offer this exciting course where, over two days and under full tuition, you craft your own longbow.
