May I jump in qith a comment related to Gunther's
> not over-armoring a point you get hit on all the time
So there I was at an archery practice. My arrows had started to go
all wonky -- well, even more than usual. 8-) They were tending to go
low and left. My instructor watched me shoot a couple of times and
said "Take off your armguard and try it again". I shot -- *WHAP*!
string to the bare forearm, nice bruise starting. I shot again --
*WHAP*! string to the bare forearm again, the bruise is spreading.
... Well, that explains the "low and to the left" business.
Fortunately, I can learn in 2 repetitions.
Now I use a more open stance and shoot without an armguard. If I hit
my arm -- well, I'm used to the pain enough that I don't flinch, but
it hurts enough to make me correct my form ASAP. My instructor calls
it a "self-correcting error".
