- Train Mental Skill and Subconscious Mind to Excellence with Proper Back Tension
- Building Blocks to Solid, Consistent Arrow-Shooting Form
- Learn from a Champion
By Forrest Fisher with Larry Wise
When your form is physically complete and practiced so it operates through the subconscious mind, you develop good mental skills to help you score high under all conditions. CORE ARCHERY will train you to be like this. CORE ARCHERY is a systematic set of archery shooting form steps built around the proper use of your skeleton. It is about proper back tension, and much more, on the building blocks of consistent, solid shooting form. It is a proven, simplified approach to consistent shooting form to achieve your desired results.
Throughout each form step of CORE ARCHERY, the governing theme is to maximize skeleton and minimize muscle. If you do this, your form will be energy efficient, fatigue resistant and highly repeatable.
CORE ARCHERY is a complete system of archery shooting form, presented here as the sequence of proper mental and physical actions required to launch an arrow to the target center. It consists of only the necessary and sufficient actions needed, and it has been validated by many archers.
CORE ARCHERY gives you the insight into good archery shooting form that will allow you to find the form you’ve lost or to gain it for the first time. Most important, when you learn core archery, you’ll be able to repeat your form, shot after shot after shot.

SPECIAL INSERT – The Shot Sequence in Digital Photos. This is a unique chapter utilizing 44 photos of one shot to show you the steps of a good archery shot as that shot is being built. The photos are on 44 consecutive right hand pages and spring to life as you thumb rapidly through them. Study the flow from one image to the next to identify how each of the 12 form steps leads into the next.
Larry notes, a bit tongue-in-cheek, “Archery is a simple two-step sport. Step One is to learn to shoot an arrow in the ten-ring. Step Two is to repeat Step One!”
