Once upon a time ago, the purpose of archery was for hunting and warfare. It is assumed as a weapon capable of killing. We often read stories about archery or watched movies but we seldom get to try archery. It is an experience that words cannot described and archery becomes an unforgettable experience once you have tried it. With archery in mind, Arrouha Sports and Outdoors which is managed by 3 friends; Mohd Zaironizam bin Daud, Muhammad Nazim bin Abdul and Mas Ilmi bin Masri. They decided to promote the sport of archery as a form of relaxation and entertainment than associating Archery as a weapon or instead as a form of hunting.
Arrouha stared in 2012, the trio had the same hobby, making their own bows and archery gear. They incorporated safety features and also created bows that are affordable for the Malaysian public. Arrouha introduced traditional bows and bows which are conceptually simple to use with a unique design styling as innovative.
The three partners fulfilled a need for quality bows by investing into the creation of Arrouha as the Company. Arrouha began researching the latest techniques in bow production favoured by the archers themselves. Arrouha is actually the name for one of the bows used by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be Upon Him) which means ‘essence’.
In their efforts and learning the process of bow making, Arrouha went to few countries to study the methods of bow making techniques of the different countries. Archery equipment can be expensive as it was imported and far less advanced as compared to the sport of paintball. Some traditional bows can command a price of USD3,000 depending on its perceived value and quality.
Thus, Arrouha sets its mission to the direction, of making a bow affordable to all Malaysians. Making our own bows, better in quality compared to imported bows. Making them lighter, easier for transportation, durable and not easily broken. Arrouha also sets its mission to ensure Archery is part of the healthy lifestyle for the community.
Arrouha targets the teenagers and the youth who are active and educating them about the benefits of Archery by staying focus on a goal. Archery can be done on the field as well indoors in a hall. It is affordable compared to paintball as arrows are reusable.
