What are the Benefits of Archery?

“If you ask any top athlete what percentage of their sport is mental, you’ll usually get 90% or higher.  If you ask them what percentage of their time and money they spend on their mental game, it’s much lower. If you ask them when they started thinking about their mental game, they say, ‘Probably too late.”

Archery teaches students important life skills such as scoring and math, team building, problem solving, decision-making, critical thinking and predicting!  The curriculum is developmentally progressive and takes students from simple games to shooting in more complex competitions.

Indoor Archery Facility / Outdoor Archery

Our Indoor archery lets you shoot regardless of conditions outside. When winds howl and snow flies, you don’t have to miss out!  Our Indoor ranges keep archers shooting for all seasons.  We have a variety of Outdoor Archery Options and feel that Shooting outdoors offers a different yet vital set of challenges. Targets are set at longer distances, and the sun, wind and temperatures affect your performance.

Rank Certified Martial Arts and Self-Defense

The instructors at The Northshore Academy of Martial Arts have trained for many years to make sure everything we teach is reality based. We’ve trained under some of the best martial artists in the world and are dedicated to staying on the cutting-edge of REALISTIC martial arts training – for ourselves and for you!

Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem

Many times when we think about the benefits of martial arts – self-esteem, respect, self-discipline and focus – we generally associate them with children and not adults. The reality is that our martial arts programs have the same benefits for kids and adults alike. At The Northshore Academy of Martial Arts, we believe all levels of martial arts are built upon the same philosophy …and… Nothing can take the place of the security in knowing that you can defend yourself should the need ever arise.

Improved Mental Focus & Increased Energy

Martial arts at The Northshore Academy of Martial Arts means much more than just self-defense. It also builds mental focus. Our Archery Classes will help you maintain control over yourself and your environment. It teaches you to handle emotions, stay calm, be persistent and provides you with the tools and willpower you need to stay focused. The physical activity derived from our curriculum will help you find reserves of energy you didn’t realize you had. Through the discipline of our Archery Program, you will learn to channel that energy into productivity at home… and in the workplace.

Strength, Conditioning and Endurance Training

Martial Arts… It’s not just for fighting: new research published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine shows that people in their 30′s, 40′s and 50′s who regularly practice martial arts demonstrate astounding levels of physical fitness in comparison to people the same age who don’t exercise at all. The study subjects who practiced martial arts had 12% less body fat, were able to do twice as many sit-ups, had enhanced flexibility and leg strength, demonstrated a stronger immune system and showed greatly improved balance.

Full Body Flexibility, Balance & Coordination

These are some of the most overlooked benefits of our Archery Tirsia Program. At The Northshore Academy of Martial Arts, you will achieve greater flexibility of your muscles, joints and ligaments. Flexibility is a positive “Double Edged Sword” with improvement to your posture and an enhancement to your ability to move through a full body range of motion. These Martial Arts benefits will also help you age in a healthier way while improving the overall quality of your life.

Weight Loss and Weight Management

Because of the greater intensity in the strikes of our Martial Arts Programs, you will be subjecting your body to more aggressive movements. This results in intense calorie burning… which then results in natural weight loss and an improvement in overall physical and mental health. Our Martial arts classes will teach you to practice your set of movements until you have the correct form down pat. This kind of mental focus and discipline can easily be carried over into forming the mental toughness you need to push yourself… while achieving your weight loss goals at the same time.

Reduced Anxiety and Stress Levels

Feeling stressed out? No need to look beyond our Archery Program! Psychologists have found positive correlations between training in Martial Arts and lower levels of hostility, aggression …and better yet… higher levels of self-esteem and positive mental attitudes compared to any other sport. At The Northshore Academy of Martial Arts, we understand that cutting stress and learning to handle yourself both physically and mentally are important benefits that you can take advantage of in your everyday life.
