      Interesting video...That style just seems so unorthodox and would take and extremely talented person to practice a lot, like shooting a pistol left handed from the hip...I wonder where their influence to shoot this way came from, very interesting...I know at some point they had to come in contact with other NA who shot differently and chose not to change...I wonder how much did they practice and how this was done exactly...You would have to practice this style even if you were born with bow in hand...No sighting down the arrow with this style for sure...I wonder what Ishi would think of my gap method? Thanks for the video
