The Horsearcher – A Lovasíjász
In “The Valley of Horses” in Hungary, the steppe culture of horsemen is under a revival because of Master Lajos Kassai, a modern warrior and philosopher dedicated to preserving horseback archery as a cultural heritage, a martial art and a sport.
Kassai has founded a school of horseback archery and recreated the ancient traditions and culture of his people, to which he has dedicated his entire life. In a Hungarian valley, one of the most beautiful corners of the world, Kassai recreates the bow tradition of his ancestors, evokes their martial arts and founds a school. The teachings have spread all over the world, and the forgotten past comes alive.
