Special thanks to Dave & Darlene Duprey of DupreyVideo.com for coming out on our last night of Outdoor Archery before summer break. Dave not only shot us doing what we love to do, but he got to give it a try too.
The Coach and Athlete Relationship
Because archery is such a technical sport, “drop-in” coaching sessions are rarely effective. Someone hoping to help you improve as an archer must see you over a period of time, see how you react to practice and tournament pressure, and see how you incorporate new knowledge and techniques. This requires a commitment of time and energy from both you and your coach. Continue reading…
“Ninja Dodgeball” is a new concept designed at Eastside Martial Arts, that allows players to not just dodge and catch balls thrown during play, but to also block them using a small hand-held target called a “focus mitt”. Players may also use their martial arts strikes and kicks to block as well. This eclectic form of dodgeball will really test your Ninja-like dexterity skills!
Children and teens (ages 5-14) will be divided into three age appropriate groups (5-8yr olds, 9-11yr olds and 12-14yr olds) to battle on three uniquely different courses with various obstacles to maneuver through and hide behind. Our facility is over 6,000 sq ft, all safely matted for added protection. We provide all ammunition, using soft tipped Nerf N-Strike Elite Series darts and Nerf Rival soft foam balls.
Plan ahead for next summer to join us for a FUN AND UNIQUE Mini Camp or full day camp that combines three martial arts disciplines, ARCHERY, FENCING, and KARATE. Masters of each sport will teach campers how to hit the target in three different ways: arrow, sword, and hand! *New* this year will be an addition of obstacle courses for agility training and FULL day camp for ages 5-8.
