Target Panic! 100% Cure Rate - Let's Put it to the Test

(1/39) > >>

There have been a couple threads on here regarding target panic.  I don't know how many of you have the problem, however, I do know that real help is available.  I know it's hard to believe, however, we have had 100% success with the interventions in my revised book.  I'm not trying to sell books because I am openly offering to help anyone on this site via email with their target panic.

Here is a testimonial from Charles Land who is a "Master Learning Facilitator For the Coaching Association of Canada, as well, I am also an NFAA Master Coach at the Pro level 4."

"Dear Jay . . . I have been working with archers from several countries that include Canada, USA, Holland and England and it is absolutely amazing that, without exception, I have had a 100% success rate on the cure of their respective degrees of target panic. These archers are all at the advanced, up to and including, one that is an Olympic archer.  It makes me feel very special when I look and see the expression on their face when they come to realize that there is a cure and now a future.  This is outstanding information and I would just like to thank you for helping me to become a more competent coach and trainer of coaches. This information is now going to form part of my seminars ( yes . . . I will be giving you your just credit ) when I work with various levels of coaches and athletes."

Basically, target panic can be identified by the symptoms.  Either you experience a premature release or a premature hold.  A premature release is most common with instinctive shooters and a premature hold is most common with sight or gap shooters.  Often, the premature hold is followed by a push toward the target and a sometimes violent release or plucking in an effort to release the arrow in the direction of the bullseye.

There are many other causes for slumps in accuracy and missing.  Many of these are also discussed in the book.  I can also help you with these problems if they go beyond the everyday struggles that all of us have (and enjoy to some degree) as we try to perfect our shooting.

You can email me with a detailed description of your symptoms and I'll be happy to help.  (Actually, I am supposed to be grading out psychology exams and am looking for a distraction.)  Target panic robs the joy of archery from far too many and if I can help you find that joy again I will be pleased.  Email me at and we'll see what we can do.

Thanks Jay!  :readit:    

I'd like to throw my thanks out to you as well, Jay.  I had it bad after trying to shoot in an indoor league last winter.  A friend told me about your book.  I bought it and read it cover to cover the day it arrived.  It helped me through it and I'm back on track.  I just wish I could have shared my fresh, grilled wild turkey I had for dinner last night, taken with my longbow, as thanks!


Thanks for the testimonials that target panic can be beat, and the late invite for turkey.  Right now, we have a dozen Trad Gang members who will be working through this process.  It's only May so that should put them back in the hunt come Fall.  Any additional takers?

Jay, What's the name of your book, and where can I get it?
