百步穿杨 【bǎi bù chuān yáng】

Recommended Posts

One day, many archest were practising archery field. An archery master Yang Youji shot the bull’s eye several times, some men provokingly suggested, “It’s nothing special to shoot the bull’s eye, you should shoot that cottonwood leaves a hundred steps away!” Yang stood steadily, attached an arrow to the bow and shot the cottonwood leaf, people all clasped hands and cheered. 


[Definition] To describe someone who has a mastery of archery.
