Errors in Archery Stance
As far as your archery stance, you want to stand side-on to the target, with your feet about shoulder-width apart and pointing along the imaginary shooting line. In fact, however, most archers find it more comfortable to have their toes a little bit further from the line than their heels are. You should point neither your feet nor your knees in the direction of the target. Doing either will compromise your archery stance.

Kyudo Archery
"Kyudo" is a Japanese word which translates as "The Way of the Bow". To many, the art of archery is the purest of all the martial arts. In ancient times in Japan, the bow was used for ceremonies, warfare, hunting, contests, and games. "Kyujutsu" is what kyudo was formally called in Japanese, a word which translates as "bow technique". This name encompassed all of the skills of the warrior archer. Some of the ancient schools of teaching archery still survive into modern times in Japan as do some of the ancient ceremonies and games, but the days when the bow was used as a weapon by Japanese soldiers are needless to say far gone. So, modern kyudo is practiced for the sake of discipline, mental development, spiritual development, and personal satisfaction.

How To Start Out in Archery
For starters, you want to join a good archery club or group with a good reputation for coaching. It is very important that you are getting top of the line instruction right from the start. Every good archery club will have a good staff of people who can give you basic archery instruction. And there will be some "masters" there who can help take you to the next level when your basics are sound.
