To be a consistently accurate archer, you need a consistent shot sequence. The mini e-book Developing Your Archery Shot Sequence guides you through the process of developing that consistent, well-timed shot routine.
This mini e-book is based on USA Archery's National Training System, as developed by Coach KiSik Lee, and written about here by Guy Krueger. You'll learn to master the 13 basic steps of a proper shot sequence. Full-color photos and detailed instruction take you from the stance to nocking the arrow, hooking and gripping, set position and mind-set, setup, drawing, loading, anchoring, transfer, holding, expansion and aiming, and release and follow-through. You'll also learn how to evaluate your shot and make proper adjustments for the next one.
Developing Your Archery Shot Sequence is a handy resource you'll refer to again and again.
The mini e-book Developing Your Archery Shot Sequence is an abridged version of the comprehensive book Archery (Human Kinetics, 2013).

The Developing Your Archery Shot Sequence mini e-book is based on USA Archery’s National Training System, as developed by Coach KiSik Lee. Lee was hired as USA Archery’s national head coach in 2006 and is credited with helping completely transform the organization’s athlete and coach development programs. Lee has one of the most accomplished coaching records in archery history: The 2012 U.S. Olympic archery team was the seventh team he led to the Olympic Games. Under Lee’s guidance, his students have won a total of nine Olympic gold medals.
During his years of coaching, Lee developed the world’s only biomechanically based, step-by-step method for shooting a bow. In introducing this system in the United States, now called the National Training System, Lee revolutionized the way archery was taught to students and also changed the way coaches are trained to work with archers.
