2nd Position in Archery Competition (2023)

In 2023, I embarked on a journey to learn traditional Korean Archery. What began as a thrilling adventure turned into a valuable learning experience. At the conclusion of our training, a competition brought together all participants, and I proudly secured the 2nd position.
Before enrolling, I thought I’d simply aim and shoot the arrow, but after taking this course, I’ve come to realize the importance of the foundational stages and the time it takes to learn them as incorrect shooting techniques can be potentially harmful.
This experience has taught me that sometimes we believe that only achieving a goal, no matter by what means, is the ultimate success. However, if we don’t pay attention to using the right approach to reach that goal, we can end up causing irreversible harm to ourselves.
