Archery classes

Written by

 

Archery classes on traditional Bhutanese bow and arrow. (out door game)

Introduction on bamboo-made bow and arrow.

Work together to make the bow and arrow that fits the individual.

Basic rules of the game.

Shooting techniques and safety.

 

Why I came with the idea of bow and arrow?

As a father of two children I like to remember my childhood and how I enjoyed archery with friends and family, so I would like to this on to my children as well as to others.

 

What are the benefits of archery and how?

It keeps you mentally and physically fit. Mentally, you need to hit the target which is placed 130m away which calls for aim and concentration. Not immediately but gradually you gain the concentration.

Physically, pulling the flexible bamboo bow to letting the arrow go towards the target is a challenge, which means a stable shooting position requires us to open our shoulders and chest. Especially shoulders are a well known part of our bodies that cramp due to stress, so it helps you to relax.

What I like most is it opens new windows for the friendship.

Much more can be written but I would like to keep this simple and short. If you are interested, please contact me for further information.

About me

Written by
Kinley, your guide to Bhutan


I was born in western Bhutan in Wangdi Phodrang, my school years I spent in a boarding school which shaped my character and taught me to treat everyone equally, with respect and dignity and to give the best whatever I do without cutting corners.

Beside my studies I was always interested in different countries, their cultures and traditions. For more than 10 years I enjoyed working as a freelance tour guide with different travel agencies. I did many treks and traveled extensively throughout Bhutan. I vividly remember my trekking days especially the snowman trek. I met many people from all over the world.

To enhance my profession and gain more knowledge I attended an iconography course received teachings on Buddhism, learned Japanese and trekked in Nepal. I had travelled extensively in Japan, India, Bangkok, several countries in Europe, five different States of America and Canada.

In the middle of my life I meet my wife from Switzerland and gave up my studies in India. We decided to live here in Switzerland where I have been living with my family for nine years.

I wish to share Bhutan, my hidden-away country, with you and to be of service to you all.
