Absolutely recommended! I thought it might be hard for me to use the bow but it was surprisingly light and easy to learn. I could even cast arrows right in the circles for the very first times. The instructor was extremely friendly and patient to me. Love this exp. I will do it again when I come back to Malaysia!
