The Malaysian Traditional Malay Archers Association (PERTAMA) is organising an International Traditional Archery Festival 2018 from 26-28 January 2018 at Ladang Alam Warisan in Negeri Sembilan, which is a place known for its authentic recreation of a traditional Malay village, showcasing the Malay lifestyle and customs, as well as a venue to learn archery and traditional horseback archery.
The three-day festival will see participants from 10 countries comprising Brunei, China, Hungary, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Romania, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand pit their archery skills against each other while wearing the national clothes of their country.
There are two separate competitive categories namely static shooting from a distance of between 20 and 60 m which take place on 27 January, and the dynamic shooting for traditional archery on 28 January.
For fans of an age old sport like archery, this is a competition that should not be missed.
During the festival, other activities will also be held including performances of traditional songs and dances, and traditional music, as well as booths selling traditional food from Malaysia and the neighbouring countries, traditional games, handicraft exhibition and others.
