Coach Kim, Hyung-Tak has more than 40 years of experience in archery. Being the first full-time coach in the Korean archery association and bringing the Korean recurve women's team to their first gold medal at the 1984 LA Olympic games, he has played a big part in the Korean dominance of the sport. Coach Kim has experience with all technical levels and uses a straightforward approach when teaching.

The application is divided into three main categories.

Further explanation can be found lower on the page.
The 'Teaching method' section contains various teaching methods perfected by Coach Kim through years of experience, to ease the learning of challenging technical skills for the archers. The coaches and athletes can watch the videos in this section together and perform the exercises to improve learning.

Ratings and Reviews
This app presents the most comprehensive dissection of the act of shooting. It gives the archer the explanation behind every moment of the shooting process. It is comprehensive and complete. it is good for beginners to start their training safely and correctly avoiding them muscle injuries or building bad habits. It is also indispensable for the expert and pro alike giving them correct explanations behind every detail.
Finally, I can carry the information with me to the field, Coach Kim’s wonderful book was too big and too heavy to carry around :)...it is like having this legendary coach with me!
Impressive instruction and key details
I really appreciate this app and the instruction given by Mr Hyung-Tak Kim. I have found several little jewels of insight that have helped me improve my coaching of youth archers at all levels. I have very grateful for these videos. I would someday love to meet this coach personally. It would be an honor to show for gratitude in person. Thank you!
Well worth the investment.
I have Coach Kim’s archery book, and twice trained by him personally at his archery school in South Korea back in 2014 and 2015. This app is a must have for anyone who is serious with competition performance in Olympic recurve. I found the video clips in this app extremely helpful. I highly recommended this app to any recurve shooters.
