Instinctive Archery Academy

The Instinctive Archery Academy has been training instinctive / intuitive archery instructors for nearly 10 years. Henry Bodnik founded The Instinctive Archery Academy to ensure that instructors who are teaching the art of instinctive / intuitive archery would be consistently trained at a high level of competence.

Instinctive / intuitive archery is not part of the competition rules for any association and is not included in any resources that we know of, other than ours, for educating shooting sport trainers. The concepts taught in this class are, of course, directly linked to and specifically help archers with their instinctive / intuitive archery experience, but the participants will also find that these concepts transcend archery and offer synergistic insights that are effective on many other platforms as well. For these reasons, it was necessary to conceptualize our specific technique of instinctive / intuitive archery and initiate our campaign for properly training the instructors and seminar leaders who teach instinctive/intuitive archery so every instructor can be well equipped to teach their students proper techniques through competent training at the highest level.
