Manly Hobby: Archery
Archery is a sport in which a great visual acuity and concentration are required. This sport is suitable for all ages, which allow people, even the older ones, start a new adventure with this specialty. It is a static but really complete sport because its practice is ideal to exercise the muscles, to develop the reflexes, concentration and visual domain and at the same time is highly recommended to correct certain spinal injuries.
It can be a practice with little physical demand, as in the case of a recreational archery bow; or extreme loads, as in the case of the Olympic mode.
Archery is also used to hunt, which requires both, the mind and the body.
The earliest evidence of archery dates back more than 50,000 years ago. It is considered the oldest sport according to the Guinness Book of Records, based on cave paintings found in caves Valltorta and Morella, Spain. The World Archery Federation places it at 40.000 years ago although some historians place it at 10,000 years ago. It was one of the first samples of artillery, the bow finally ended up replacing the atlatl as the predominant system of launching missiles.
