The Barrel of the Gun

Often we receive the question, "What exactly is the Barrel of the Gun" and when and how does one achieve this. This part of the KSL cycle forms part of all KSL's seminars and coaching sessions and is a vital component of the shot.
There are various videos on the Internet, but none explains it better as Jake Kaminski who trained for 6 years full time under Coach Lee at the USA Olympic Training Centre at Chula Vista and a further 6 years during competions. Jake is a twice Olympic Silver Medallist (2012;2016) and has many World Championships medals to his name.

Raising the Bow

There has been some confusion and misunderstanding regarding this aspect of the shot. The main objective at the end of the Setup position is to achieve perfect bone alignment to achieve   “The barrel of the gun”.
Below Coach Kisik Lee shares and illustrates his teachings on this important part of the shot.

RAISING THE BOW
This applies to right handed archers; the positions are reversed for a left handed archer".

Setting the bow, including the hooking and gripping the bow, should be with the stabilizer pointing to the left, away from the target. This will allow the bow forearm to be more in line with the arrow line during the drawing process, promoting a stronger and more efficient biomechanical relationship.
Raising the sight should be in a vertical motion line to the left of the target and just to above the top of the target, with the stabilizer still pointing left, away from the target. Do not watch the sight pin whilst raising the bow, but focus on your aiming spot on the target. The main objective at the end of the Setup position is to achieve perfect bone alignment and achieving
   “The barrel of the gun”.
From the highest point, which should be about 11am in relation the Gold, the sight must now move from the 11am position in a straight line to the center of the Gold during the drawing phase to reach the Loading position”.
