The ultimate archery trick. Proving that Hollywood archery is not historical.

DO I HIT EVERYHING?
I use a LOT of time practicing, and every time I set out to learn a new skill, a new trick or how to handle a new type of bow or arrow, it takes a long time, with plenty of misses. When I got the idea of grabbing an arrow in flight and firing before I landed, it took me months to learn. For a long time, arrows flew everywhere!
But there’s no trick in the video that I haven’t done many times (except for splitting the arrow in flight – after I’d done that once I finished the video). The one with hitting the blade I’ve only done three times, though. All that running hurt my knees. 😉
THE BACK QUIVER
Hollywood of course did not invent the back quiver, but they spread the myth it was proper archery!
Many asked why I do not use a back quiver and that is why I am showing my own experience, how bad it is in motion.
There are many different historical variatoner of back quiver and they have of course been used, but presumably belt quiver was more common and some archers did not use quiver.
Past archers obvious used fixed targets, but not the modern round divided two dimensional.
ON MY BOWS AND POWER
Many people talk about how what I do is only possible because I use bows that are less powerful than English longbows. They are correct. I’m 50 years old, and have been doing archery for only ten years. I’ll never be able to shoot really fast with 100 lbs+ war bows. I tried, but it just produced injuries. Had I started at age 10, it would have been a different story. 😉

There is no single ” The Lars Method”, or set in stone tutorial on his technique because he shoots many ways depending on the situation, and his archery has many variations.
Lars is a great archer. Many people are wondering how he can speed shoot arrows so fast. This video is not about his claims, this is about explaining his usage of wide gap nocks. That doesn’t mean he’s cheating. But it was perfected using modified nocks, which increases chance of dry fire.
DISCLAIMER: I Try to explain Lars Andersen’s technique. I am not Lars Andersen.
I experiment, develop and attempt to find out how Lars Andersen shoots his arrows fast.
I am no expert. The whole thing is very complicated.

One of the secrets of his technique is that he uses 1 inch wide nocks.
However, Lars Andersen’s speed shooting technique is not historically accurate. It is not practical for ancient combat due to the lack of ability to draw heavy bows (100-150 pounds). It is very practical for gaining
