This review is from: Archery (Kindle Edition) I’ve been a believer in the Kisik Lee method since before he arrived in America, and have attended more than one seminar or certification course at a USOC OTC every year since 2006 (sometimes 3 or 4). There has never been a more lucid, thorough written explanation of the method, which is currently referred to as the “National Training System”. Many will know it as the “B.E.S.T.” (Biomechanically Efficient Shooting Technique). I say this having listened to Coach Lee time and again, and feeling at times that his use of English as a second language was sometimes an impediment to understanding the “true meaning” of the KSL Shot Cycle. Guy Krueger (a fellow Texan whom I know as well) provides extremely clear information on training and the fundamentals of Olympic Archery.This book is worth the cost for the chapters on the NTS method, alone! If you are an archer, or a coach, and wish to be able to perform your role with maximum effectiveness, you should seek exposure in a live setting such as a USAA certification course, and then use this book’s content to buttress, to greatly expand, your comprehension of the topic.In the past and after two other books on the NTS/BEST method, I have dealt with many archers and coaches who have tried to “get” the KSL shot cycle and shooting methodology from just the books but mis-interpreted the data, their understanding was usually not clear at all – I generally feel it is virtually impossible to grasp fully the power of the NTS/BEST method by reading a book alone. BUT with a firm initial grounding/exposure you will be able to achieve far more effectiveness and power by using what Guy Krueger and Kisik Lee write in their chapters on the NTS. Kisik is sharing his knowledge with the world, not just the U.S., and therefore this book is of solid value to *any* archer and *every* coach, far more than the actual cost of the book. I can recommend this book based solely on these chapters, never mind the chapters written by others dealing with nutrition, compound bows, and others.(There is some value there as well, but the NTS information is awesome. And even without a “live” learning session you will be able to extract value from the book. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 5 of 5 people found the following review helpful Lots of useful info in one place, January 17, 2013 By Karen (Los Angeles, CA USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Archery (Paperback) I bought Archery first on Kindle because the paperback was not available. I liked it so much that I then purchased 3 paperbacks, one for myself and two as presents. Written for both recurve and compound by some of the leading coaches and archers today, I think this is a wonderful reference. Although things are improving, it is often hard to find specific information about improving your archery skills. What exactly ARE SPT drills? How do you develop physical and mental training programs? How do you make your practice more effective? How do you peak for competition? ARCHERY covers those and many more topics. It is an informative yet easy read. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 4 of 4 people found the following review helpful A real “Back To Basics” detailed review of archery training., February 18, 2013 By R. Denoncour (High Springs, FL, US) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Archery (Paperback) The Junior Olympic Archery Development (JOAD) Program is the premier instruction organization in the U.S. Hundreds of schools, equipment suppliers, and training schools follow the JOAD Program. This book details this method of learning archery. My granddaughter attends archery classes. I try to “audit” the class. There is much to learn. It’s easy to miss or forget a detail. This book goes through the instructions, step-by-step. Each chapter is FILLED with most useful information. I think this book is great for archers (novice to advanced), parents of archers, and anyone wanting to learn archery or improve archery skills. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
