  • Went with a few friends. Initial interaction was great and Rob had a lot of knowledge to offer. He was also very accommodating as well. Although interaction was slightly off putting for me, I can't seem to put my finger on it however I did catch myself in an awkward laugh here or there. The lesson itself was amazing, and very informative. Don't really quite think I'm sold on coming back however I would definitely recommend anyone to give it a shot.
  • Rob was a fantastic instructor. It was never a dull moment with him. Learning how to properly throw axes was much better than blindly finding your way at a more expensive venue. Great deals for first time class takers. Give him a call!
  • TL;DR Rob knows his stuff and is very encouraging. Facilities LOOK a bit off-putting, but serve their purposes. Would recommend max 4-6 people per group to avoid cramped space. Would visit again! My girlfriend and I came across the archery lessons on groupon... After doing a bit of my own research (and comparing to other venues), Rob seemed ‘legit’. I had done a bit of “here’s a bow, and some arrows, shoot that thing over there” backyard archery before, whereas my partner had never touched either. Upon greeting us, Rob immediately struck me as charismatic and passionate about what he does. Sure, he can linger and chatter on occasionally, but he was in good spirits for our lesson. We began with the basics which quite frankly I was impressed by and learned a hell of a lot about ‘mind over matter’, proper posture, and breathing. By the time we got to firing our first arrows, my partner and I felt a bit more confident. Rob was very precise with his feedback after every shot fired, and overall encouraging. As for the location... It reminded me of when I used to visit my grandparents to fire my rifle on their property... it’s quaint, and was a bit nostalgic for me. The facilities (INT and EXT) serve their respective purposes. I see no need for an industrious environment or big fancy gym to partake in primitive sports... Girlfriend and I left in good spirits and confident in our abilities. If we had more time to spare, we’d be back for more lessons. I’d recommend this experience for maybe 4 people max, more might feel a bit cramped in both INT and EXT. Forgot to take photos!
  • Great teacher. I paid for a 90m archery class with my sister and it was a blast. The teacher is very knowledgeable and supportive and you feel good after you've completed the session! Indoor and outdoor options are a nice bonus!
  • Robert, a genuine Olympic champion, offers private and group lessons in archery, axe throwing, and other weapon skills. His setup is first class. He has indoor and outdoor facilities, to accommodate various weather conditions. He is the real deal.
