This season has been a bit harder to work and still have the time to practice and participate in the events, but nevertheless the spirit is still alive and the will to improve is stronger.
The body and mind control is essential along with the concentration power for a good archer(i've been told).
Listening to experience archers is always a good advice.
And take your time . . .
With the objective of getting Portuguese Archery known, i hope to give you info over the portuguese top archers.
Dedicate this page (still under construction) to my archery friends, and all my future friends.
