“Our goal is to reach world records”
Consultant of Traditional Sports Club Inst. Mustafa Yilmaz stated that traditional archery is an inheritance from our ancestors and bow was entrusted from Prophet Adam and they organized various contests together with the students to maintain this trust.
Yilmaz noted that archery, whose history dates back to ancient times, is also widely found in Islam and that there are many hadith and verses related to it. Saying that arrow represents Allah’s mercy, Yilmaz said, “There are records that can be accessed in the world, and we want to reach these records.”
The students said, ” Archery is the sunnah of our prophet and he never touched bow and arrow without ablution, so we do not touch it without ablution too, we do not target, we shoot with emotion completely.” and noted how they began training.
