International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC) – IPSC Action Air World Shoot

Hello Everyone! This is Tommy Yau from BBA-FA. I am here to introduce you an extraordinary fun & exciting shooting sport which you all may have seen it in movies (i.e.鎗王) – International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC). 

 

IPSC shooters need to blend accuracy, power, and speed into a winning combination. Multiple targets, moving targets, targets that react when hit, penalty targets, or even partially covered targets, obstacles, movement, competitive strategies, and other techniques are all a part of IPSC to keep shooters challenged and spectators engaged.

 

The inaugural IPSC Action Air World Shoot was successfully held in Jun30-Jul2. As a young shooter, I am proud to be representing Hong Kong and captured the overall 3rd place in the Open Division.

 

Shooting is not only a sport but also a perfect tool to polish many soft skillsets in life. Shooting requires 100% focus all the time, it also trains up EQ as well as helping one to live their lives balanced via regular training, healthy diet and exercises.

 

I would like to hereby say thank you to the school and PE unit who supported me a lot through the way. I really hope that more young people like YOU will participate in the sport and join my hand to promote this meaningful sport in a positive way.’

 

~ From YAU Chun Sing Tommy (BBA-FA Year 2)
