Chinese Archery Archive

Ed./Corp.: Stephen Selby, Asian Traditional Archery Research Network, Hong
Kong.
URL.: http://www.atarn.org/chinese/cn_arc_indx.htm
Language: English.

Self description: The Asian Traditional Archery Research Network provides
for mutual friendly exchange and support among the different archery
traditions of Asia, and to widen appreciation worldwide of the different
archery traditions of Asia.
The archery traditions of Asia (for example those of Mongolia, China, Korea,
Tibet and Japan) have at one time or another enjoyed cross-fertilization and
exchange of techniques (albeit sometimes on the battlefield.) Now some of
these great traditions have disappeared, while others flourish, but in
isolation.
The archery traditions of Asia are rich in folklore, history, artistic
expression, philosophy, technique, science and technology. Some, however,
are in danger. In some Asian regions, the influence of western materialistic
culture threatens to cause a loss of interest among potential new exponents.
Sometimes, it is the craft of the bow and arrow makers which is under threat
because of the dying-out of skills or the disappearance of sources of
traditional materials.

Description: This page is a sub-site of ATARN, the Asian Traditional Archery
Research Network, covering much more than only China, cf.
http://www.atarn.org. There is also a very active forum. The entries differ
very much frm each other, there are reprinted articles, translations,
excerpts from personal communication, richly illustrated texts on mechanisms
(like the crossbow or the archer's rings). Although the last update was 24
January, 2002, the highly specialized content of the site is very
interesting, not only to archery freaks.
