Archery

Our aim is to let Europe know more about our nations’ old history so from 1995 we take part of the reconstruction and distribution of traditional composite reflex bows.

The composite reflex bows were used by the Hungarians (Magyars) from the 9-10th century among others. They were born somewhere in Central Asia in the 5-6th century, reached Europe with the migration and took part in lots of battles in the middle ages. It consists in five pieces and it has stiff endings. When this weapon was born its technics and efficiency highly exceeded the others’. Only the muskets could supplant them on the battlefields after ten successful centuries in Asia and Europe.

This kind of weapon was used to be a main connection between several ethnic groups such as the Scythians, Huns, Magyars, Mongols, Avars, Turks. Through the centuries these nomad groups changed and developed the bows to reach the best results. Thanks to the developments various types of bows were born in those ages.
