The shot on the subjects

Eines der berühmtesten Events of Japanese archery happened during the Genpei War (1180-1185). At the Battle of Yashima, the Heike went back after their defeat on their boats at Yashima, the pursuing Genji were stopped by the sea. As the Heike waited near the shore for a favorable wind, they hung a fan to the mast of the ships and urged the Genji, shoot him down.

The general of the Genji, Yoshitsune, looked left and right to its people, whether it was someone among them who could shoot down these subjects. The boat swayed in the stürmischen Wind and strong waves up and down. The meeting therefore called for the highest technology. None of his people came forward, but someone was among the officers of Nasu no Yoichi suggested, saying: "This man shoots so masterfully that it simultaneously on the hunt with an arrow three birds killed."

Nasu no Yoichi Munetaka

Yoshitsune was Nasu no Yoichi Munetaka call to him and ordered him to shoot down the fan from the bow of the ship. Although Yoichi persistently refused, Yoshitsune ordered him again, under all also to shoot the fan. In keeping with this strict command Munetaka drove his horse into the sea from the shore. He rode on and on, and as the distance only 50 was big step, he lay at rest on a swan feather arrow and turned his gaze to the target.
swayed like a leaf on the high seas the boat. The fan was stuck on the pole at the bow, stopped not to the right and left to fluctuate up and down. Well this is where Munetaka took a heart and drawing the bow altogether. The maximum point he blew up and the arrow shot from a masterful way, the hinge of the fan so that it flew high into the air.
This story is told since time immemorial among the warriors, and future generations the story was one of the most famous events überliefert the Genpei War.

This power is still sought by some Japanese archers. The construction can be either as shown in the historical record in a boat with mast, but this means the loss of arrows, or by a structure on land.

This is fixed in a distance of 60 meters for protecting a fan of three meters.

reminds This type of shooting at the popular in Belgium, France and parts of the Netherlands version of the traditional European archery, or the Popinjay Papingo.

In this variant shot vertically upwards on a series of spring ball. She has developed directly from the practice of the ships lying at anchor in the harbor stationed longbow. To keep fit while they were in the harbor, were birds (usually Jays and parrots) or, alternatively, spring pads on the yards and on top of the mast set. In another variant, where space was lacking for target shooting, conducted a flag pole horizontally from the church steeple. The meeting of the top goals brought the most points. The objectives below brought the fewest points.

This type of shooting to a high post is still practiced today in England. A wooden parrot or a rooster that is represented by a cylinder of 5 "x 2" (12.5x5cm) is placed at the top of the mast or post. On cross-ties including the following 4 hens 4 " x 1.5 "(10x3.8cm), then including the 24 chicks 2" x 1 "(5x2.5cm). All with Federnbeklebt. Results are worth 5 points for Hahn, 3 points for every hen and 1 point for each chick. You must move away from their perch among shot at and when the tap is taken by the rod to be put back again all in place.

Popinjay is in northern France and the Flemish-speaking Belgium very popular. The capital of the Popinjay, Bruges, where there is on the outskirts shot an old place. Also in northern France Popinjay is widespread, particularly in the regions of Nord / Pas de Calais (Artois), where most events between Hazebrouck to the southwest of Lille held. Outside England use the followers of this kind of shooting but not usually the longbow recurve bow. Even quite small towns have their own "perche" (fattening) of up to 85 feet (26m) high.
