Shooting at Moving Target in a Seated Position Called “Malikler Oturushu”

“Malikler Oturushu” is the typical eastern style of sitting, with legs crossed. In old Mamluk archery treatised this style of sitting was called as “malikler oturushu” referring to the formal sitting position of sultans and high ranked officers. Shooting from this position was mentioned in the treatises and additionally, depictions of such shots are also available. Here I demonstrate shooting from malikler oturushu while my chest is facing the target. And, the target is an aerial disc.
