3 Lessons I Learned From Gandiva Cafe And Archery

 

My high school teacher once told me, “Aim for the stars and not for the tree.” He always emphasized the importance of doing your best while consoling on each defeat. And just like life, archery parallels our goals set to be achieved.

Movies like Hunger Games, Brave, Chronicles of Narnia have entered the Philippines’ movie mainstream. Yet, archery, the element which makes these movies big hits in one way or another, is apparently not very accessible in our country. Fortunately, Gandiva Archery and Cafe makes archery available for us Filipinos.

3. Archery is a “sexy” sport of the mind for lovers.

While Wikipedia defines archery as an art, practice, or skill of propelling arrows with the use of a bow, I personally think that archery is a ‘sexy’ sport of the mind, especially for couples. Aside from the facts of physics like the use of projectile, force-velocity relationships and kinetic energy that we may not realize we’re using, it makes a date hit the bull’s eye of absolute romance. It’s like you are one with your partner in hitting the goal with too much focus, vigor and strength. insert literary criticism here

2. Firearms cannot parallel the class of archery.

Just like any trend, archery faced its decline when firearms became accessible to the public. The gun and the bow have been long compared with one another, especially in the realm of hunting. It seems that guns became the “shortcut” of archery. However, we no longer live in a world where we need to hunt for food. My friends told me to try out a shooting range after archery, but I firmly believe that firearms cannot parallel the class that archery possesses. The use of a bow and arrow gives me the peace, silence and resilience of hitting the goal in the face of recreation. That’s just my two cents, though. After all, success is well served without shortcuts.

1. Recreational archery is best paired with vegetarianism.

In ancient times, archery was used in hunting and in war. It was a great means of getting food, after all. In our generation, however, archery is but a recreational activity that improves one’s focus and promotes optimum fitness. And as a pescetarian ( a person who only eats fish and vegetables), I was so happy to see that the food served in Gandiva Cafe and Archery are all for vegetarians. This is no wonder since the owners of Gandiva, the Bismark Brothers, have been vegetarians since birth! And since archery in Gandiva promotes optimum fitness, why not add up a wholesome or nourishing alternative eating or diet to it?
