What is NTS?

Kisik Lee

Since 2006, when Coach Kisik Lee became the USA National Head Coach, USA Archery adopted the NTS (National Training System), which is based on the teachings of Coach Kisik Lee and his KSL Shot Cycle system. It has made America competitive again in both Worlds and Olympic Team events. This was clearly seen at the Silver Medal Match at the 2012 London Olympics when the US Team beat Korea. But what exactly is NTS?

June 24, 2009 - Total Archery - "Inside the Archer"

KSL Logo

Message from Coach Kisik Lee


To all the archers reading this book, please realize this book was written for you. The subtitle of the book, Inside the Archer , is meant to relate to the feeling, emotion, and power, you as the archer feel while shooting. After the success of the first Total Archery book, I had a great desire to publish a book written from the perspective of an archer. I feel I have come close to the best approach to teaching Olympic-level archery.

Though this book is written from the feeling and understanding of an archer, this does not mean a coach will not find this a valuable read. First and foremost the descriptions will be what an archer should see, experience, and feel, however it is the job of the coach to get inside of his archer. It is impossible to shoot the arrows for your students, but it is my goal that through this book, coaches will feel more like archers, and together the archer and coach can come closer together in their understanding. If a coach remembers that in order for his archer to shoot a ten from 70 meters, the archer must keep the point of their arrow in a circle smaller than the tip of a ball-point pen, and then approach coaching with that same amount of precision and attention to detail, one can be assured of much greater success.

Through the course of writing this book I have ?changed my own coaching and understanding, for the better.

Extracts and photos from FITA official website

Gold Medal: ELLISON Brady (USA) - IM Dong Hyun (KOR)

The last match features the reigning World Champion and Team World Record holder Im and the 19-year old Ellison. The latter has the best start with 9-10-9 (27) versus 8-9-9 (26) for Im. However, the Korean turns the score to his advantage in the second end thanks to a perfect end (10-X10-X10). Ellison shoots 8-9-9 and trails by 3 (53-56). It seems he cannot do anything as the World Champion of Korea continues with another triple 10 (86). Ellison is behind by 6 with three 9s (80). The two archers copy each other in the last end with both shooting 9-10-9. The difference therefore does not change and Im takes gold with 114 pts. Ellison scores a total of 108 pts and wins silver for his first gold medal match on a World Cup.

Brady Ellison (USA)
I was shooting strong. There were good shots but they just didnt go in. Five or six arrows were very close to the 10 ring. I like this final field on the beach very much. Even the warm-up range had the same conditions as the actual final field. I didnt feel tense because it was a special field. It was still me, the target and one opponent.

The US trials to qualify for the Olympic Games were about eight months long. It was a long and difficult process because each round of competitions was more important than the previous one. It obliged the archers to stay strong pretty much every week-end. We played a whole lot of matches and in a sense it was the best training. Coach Lee designed these trials and I trust him. For me he is the best coach in the world. He probably brought home more gold medals than anyone else. I have known him since I started to shoot recurve. He is like family. He is so good in pointing out the little things that are wrong in your shooting. He knows exactly what he wants and how you should shoot to perform at your best. He makes you achieve your best potential.

I hope I stick to my mental game until the Beijing Olympics and I hope for the best there!

Phase 1 of the USA mission in El Salvador has been accomplished. Karen Scavoto and Khatuna Lorig finished 1st & 2nd in the FITA ranking round. That puts the USA in the best possible position going into the OR tomorrow. They will have a bye in the first round and then they need to win at least 2 matches to be in position to finish in top 3. The top 3 finishers are the only ones that qualify spots for the Olympics. Hopefully both girls will get into the final.

The girls are in good spirits and are shooting well. There has been no wind, but it rains some every day. Lets pray that it will be good news.

Gold Medal Final
Sky KIM originally from Korea, but now competing with a lot of passion for Australia produced a spectacular finish to the tournament in Beijing. CHENG and KIM were tied at 111-111 at the end of the 12 arrows. KIM was leading 84-82, but a triple 9 in the last end gave an opening to CHENG to tie the match with 10-9-10. The tie break then required each archer to shoot the maximum three arrows each before the gold medallist finally emerged. Perfect 10s by both archers in the first two shots took it to the very last arrow, in which the flawless shooting of KIM secured him the glory, shooting another 10 to CHENGs 9.

What a great and fitting end to the week of action in Beijing. The archers will now have less than a year to brush up their skills ready for the big event at next years Olympics.
