Experience Jemparingan: The Ancient Javanese Art of Archery

Jemparingan is a traditional archery that has existed since the time of Javanese kingdom hundreds of years ago. In the past, Jemparingan was an activity played by elite and nobility. It became popular as it outgrew its exclusivity and become a regular activity for locals. Jemparingan is not just a pastime sport, it is as much an exercise for the soul as it is for the body.

About your handler, Erchan


Hello! I'm Hery Chandra, but everyone call me Erchan for short. I was born in Makassar, then my family and i moved to Pontianak, raised in Jakarta and moved again to Bangka Belitung. My journey doesn't stop there, i studied in a tourism academy in Yogyakarta — then i choose to start the new exploration in Yogyakarta, the lovely city which i love for 4 years. While i moving to other cities, i realized there are so many cultures in Indonesia that would be great to share with others. so, i'm here to share my experiences and i'll let you know the reason why we should love Yogyakarta..

What we'll do


The activity will take place in a local community within an outskirts of Jogja. Prepare yourself to feel authentic experience of Javanese traditional archery with the warm-hearted villager.

You will visit local artisan where bandul (jemparingan target) is made and learn the philosophy of bandul, make your own bandul and bring it home as a souvenier. Then visit studio of jemparing (arrow) & gendewo (bow). You can get insights into how each component is produced, what kind of materials are used, and technique to make good quality bows.

Enjoy lunch with Javanese traditional foods and drinks. Now, at the end of the trip, you will practice jemparingan with professional coaches until you can master the technique and have a lots of story to tell.


 

Where we'll be


We will conduct our workshop in a 'pendopo' (semi-outdoor building without walls to simbolize the openness to others) in a village in Sleman, Yogyakarta. This pendopo's floor is higher than the yard to reflect appreciation to all guests and intimacy with harmony. it's a special place to interact with the locals and experience the jemparingan.
