We invite you to learn and teach the Turkish archery
Archery has always been a popular activity for many nations, both as a form of hunting and a warfare sport, and it is an integral and exceptional characteristic of the Turkish nation. We, as Yunus Emre Institute and the Archers' Foundation, have launched the Kemankeş (Archer) Project in order to promote the traditional archery, one of the building blocks of the Turkish cultural history, and improve our cultural ties with this traditional sport. We have trained 72 trainers from 16 countries. More than 1,000 people have attended our Turkish archery courses and learned about the intricacies of this historical sport.
You can visit one of Yunus Emre Institute's branches in Baku, Budapest, Lahore, Podgorica, Sarajevo, Tbilisi, Tirana, Tunis, Skopje and Zagreb and apply for the 3rd Turkish Archery Training to be held in Istanbul between April 15 and 22, 2019, and have a chance to receive archery training from the masters of this sport in our sport facilities at the Archers' Lodge, which has provided foundation services for centuries. So you can have an opportunity to enjoy the Turkish culture in its unique historical atmosphere.
Following the one-week intensive training, the trainers will return to their countries where they will give archery courses under the Turkish archery curriculum at the classrooms prepared by our Institute using the training materials and handmade archery equipment provided to them. The Kemankeş Project seeks to promote Turkish archery around the globe and raise new athletes.
