Hi, my name is Charlie Labarda. I'm here with Expert Village, to talk about beginning archery.
Now we will talk about our stance. I will stand pretty much; part of my body just facing
a little bit at an angle. My feet position; it's just a normal stance where I'm comfortable
that I've got my balance. You notice how I'm holding my bow. My shoulder is pointing almost
at the target. Find your comfortable stance. There's many stances; it's just depending
on the target. Some targets will require you to kneel down. With your stance; depending
on what kind of equipment you have on your rest; mine has a safety on my rest, so I can
either hold it down; I don't have to worry about my arrow falling off, or I can hold
it against my thigh, or just this position.
