From the year of 1720 – today.

The Ju Yuan Hao bow and arrow-making workshop used to be one of the 17 Imperial bow and arrow-making workshops in the gong jian da yuan (bow & arrow courtyard), located on Dongsi Street. This workshop is the only bow and arrow-making workshop that retains its bow and arrow-making tradition.

The Ju Yuan Hao bow is one kind of “recurve” Chinese traditional bow, which has a curvature when it is unstrung. Craftsmen first make a core for the bow from thin bamboo and attach the wooden grip and the ears. Then they firmly glue horn and sinew to the core. Finally craftsmen decorate the bow with material such as birch bark, symbols, and lacquer.

The traditional bow and arrow have struggled mightily in the market since the 1960s. In order to continue keep this technical tradition alive, the owner of the Ju Yuan Hao workshop, Yang Wentong, passed on his skills to his third son, Yang Fuxi.

Now, Mr. Yang Fuxi (Master of Ju Yuan Hao Workshop) is the only one who can make the Chinese traditional bow and arrows. Juyuanhao Workshop, today’s only one who can make Chinese traditional archery which were used by ancient Chinese Imperial Military.
Features of Juyuanhao bow and arrows: Light,Durable,Immensely Accurate and Powerful.

October 7th, 2011 No comments
The 25-year old Chinese archer CHENG Ming won the recurve women’s World Cup Final 2011 in Istanbul, Turkey. Since she started competing on the World Cup circuit in 2010, she has won eight medals (individual, team and mixed team altogether) in stages, including three gold, two silver and three bronze. The Chinese is ranked 7th in the world.
 
CHENG did not qualify in the Chinese team for this year’s World Championships that took place in July in Turin, Italy. But she overcame disappointment and won her first World Cup stage in individual in August in Ogden. It was her victory in the USA that assured her of a spot for the Istanbul Final where won the title.
In 2010, she won two gold medals, in team and mixed team, at Stage 2 in Antalya, Turkey. The same year, she was also individual and team silver medallist at the Asian Games.
In the first week of October 2011, CHENG shot in the Olympic Test Event in London, where she was 18th after the ranking round. Seeded No. 3 in the team event, CHENG and her teammates FANG Yuting and XU Jing defeated Poland in quarterfinals and the host country Great Britain in semifinals. The Chinese then lost the gold medal match to the favourite No. 1 team Korea and clinched silver in London.
In the individual event in London, the World Cup champion was happy to come out the winner in her first match against Sinead CUTHBERT (IRL), 6-4, despite shooting 24 points only in the fifth set. However, luck went over to the other side in 1/16 elimination, where CHENG was defeated by Ksenia PEROVA (RUS) after a shoot-off.
