An archery lesson for $25 – 2 hours roughly.
It’s a beautifully sunny Saturday afternoon at the Waipio Regional Park and my son is having an archery lesson.
I thought it rather random he initiated the interest out of the blue. But like a good mommy, I said sure, we can look into it.
I wondered how my son could benefit from this experience and it excited me.
Archery seems to be very much a hunting sport in Hawaii, primarily on the outer islands, where people still hunt for game, like wild boar. I am ignorant if they actually use bow and arrow, but this is the archery culture in Hawaii.
I think it is more the determined focus of target shooting and the mental capacity and strength it takes that can build in my child that really excites me.
I know there are events and competitions should he pursue that aspect of the sport, but for now I’m glad this makes him happy.
