    Thomas,

    Years ago, when I was 18 or so, I became obsessed with Asian archery in general. As I had precious little money 13 years ago, the interest soon faded and I relapsed to being happy with home made flat bows. After watching every documentary and film on Asian archeries I have been able to find recently, until sick of the topic, I am again obsessed, but with the patience and education to view its aspects with some temperance. Korean bows have to be the most efficient composite bow in the world. Watching archers shoot at targets 180 yards away, and their angle of trajectory is only 12 or so degrees above flat plane, says that there has got to be a little something more to the Korean bow. It is the most compact, more graceful, and surely has the greatest serviceable range and speed. These bows are faster than anything I have ever known. To me, the Korean method is the perfected embodiment of archery. How do I get started? Not only I, but my family? We are spread out between Chicago and Orlando, FL. I live in Florida myself, so that's where we should begin. How might I obtain or construct my own bow? Is there a video floating around on how to make your own Korean bow? It seems that there should be. I am used to shooting thumb to thumb habitually. It's how I learned to shoot after breaking a few fingers in the hood of a car, but didn't want to stop shooting. It is a good way to shoot. Any information would be splendid. After 13 years, it's time to feed this desire. Thank you for your time.

    Regards,

    Aaron, Orlando FL
