Shihan Thomas' Profile

About

I have studied the fighting arts my whole life. My greatest loves and areas of specialized training have been Shudo-kan Karate-Do and archery. I made my first bow at the age of seven out of a willow twig and a shoelace, needless to say, it broke! What it did do is light a fire inside of me, leading me down a path to continually better myself and my chosen trades. I spent most of my working life as a commericial painter, then owned an archery pro shop for ten years, sold out to my staff in the spring of 2011. Growing up in Alaska has given me a better insight into durability and performance as well as abundant opportunities to test my creations in sport, hunting and fun. Long winters inside dont hurt either, they lead to ample time perfecting crafts. If your intrested in any of my projects or want a bow or quiver made just for you, please feel free to contact me.
Thanks,
Shihan Thomas
