Many people living in Los Angeles lead active lifestyles and like to participate in sports. For some, it is golf while others choose to play tennis. Sport can become something of a passion and people can reach a point where their chosen sport is the only one that they participate in. Such people may spend most of their leisure time doing just that (chess players even classify chess as a sport). By far the majority of Los Angeles sportsmen and women will never rise to fame by participating in major tournaments and competitions (let alone winning them). However, they get great satisfaction simply from playing the game.
Archery As A Sport
Worldwide communications have enabled just about all of us to be able to watch sporting events, like the Summer Olympics, live as and wherever they are taking place. This has exposed us to watching sports that we knew existed but knew very little about them. From a host of old “western” movies and TV shows we are all aware of the hunting and fighting potential of the bow and arrow. From live sports coverage, most of us are equally aware of archery as a true competitive sporting activity.
This awareness will have made some people start to give thought to trying their hand at archery. In addition, some may have had early archery experience at school or summer camp which was never serious enough to carry on from that to become a full aficionado of the bow and arrow. Believe it or not, there is even a word for such aficionados –they are known as “toxophilites” after the made up title of the first book about archery to be written in English in 1545.
The fact that a book was needed to teach English yeomen how to use their bows and arrows in defense of the realm hints that becoming a good archer (let alone a “toxophilite”) is a little more than simply getting your hands upon a bow and some arrows. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that archery experts are now holding Archery Classes In Los Angeles.
If you are a “wannabe” archer, do not be put off by the idea of “classes”. There will be a little bit of theory to learn but basically these Archery Classes In Los Angeles will be hands on training with a real bow in your hands shooting real arrows at a real target.
