7. How to hold the Bow

Keep calm and breathe deeply.

Every movement will be noticed by your allies, who will help you if necessary.

But do not forget that your opponent is watching you too, and he knows the difference between a steady hand and an unsteady one: therefore, if you are tense, breathe deeply, because that will help you to concentrate at every stage.

At the moment when you take up your bow and place it - elegantly - in front of your body, try to go over in your mind every stage that led up to the preparation of that shot.

But do this without tension, because it is impossible to hold all the rules in your head; and with a tranquil mind, as you review each stage, you will see again all the most difficult moments and how you overcame them.

This will give you confidence and your hand will stop shaking.
