I got hit a few times in the last competition I was in. The Mongolian
archers learn to dodge arrows at the same time they are learning to shoot.
Most professional archers in Mongolia step aside from where the arrrow will
land as soon as the bow is fired, they are that good at telling the
trajectory. Good training for combat archery.
When you work the targets, you use a series of hand signals to show if the
archer hit or missed and in which direction.
