We currently run a free lesson program for the general public. Classes are given by our NFAA-certified instructors, and are appropriate for ages ten years old and older. Classes cover an introduction to the use of the traditional recurve bow, with emphasis on range safety and on learning how to hold, draw, aim, and shoot a successful archery shot.
All equipment and supplies are provided by KMA. Particulars are described further below.
If you would be interested in attending one of our classes,
Due to weather and the Holidays, our normal lesson season runs from late March through late October; therefore, we're not holding lessons until March. Our online registration form will be available again in February; please visit our site again at that time to sign up for archery lessons for next year. Thanks!
Registration for our free public lessons is now closed for the year. We'll reopen it for next year's season sometime in February, so please check back with us then.
Private lessons--groups or individual:
KMA is not staffed to provide private lessons, however our program director can refer you to indoor ranges located in Daly City, Palo Alto, Newark or Gilroy which can accommodate private groups or individual lessons, corporate events or birthday parties on a fee-basis. Email our lesson coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
Once you've learned the safety & basics of shooting a bow & arrow, and you find that you want to go further, please consider joining KMA. Club members have access to entry-level, club-owned bows available for use while visiting the range (bring your own arrows and safety equipment).
Many of our members will gladly provide on the spot advice on equipment and shooting techniques or can direct you to the proper resource to help you out.
Whether you decide to join us or not, thank you for participating in the KMA free lesson program.
