meh it's the same as juggling especially with that tiny bow.
He's clearly getting enough velocity and accuracy on his shots to make for an effective weapon, even with the light draw on that bow.
The narration and the jumping may be kind of dumb, but I think he adequately argues his thesis that this is the proper draw and fire technique for a military archer, and that's interesting.

Fuck everything else, I wanna see a movie of this guy!
Might be hard to get a horse to wear stilts.

This video is really interesting, but the narration grates my nerves.

Apart from the under-the-table Lars shot first shit the rest of it was pretty cool.

This guy will survive the apocalypse.

I do believe it's high time I tried this at home!
Six feet of 1" PVC pipe, five feet of parachute cord (plus some extra length for making loops to attach to the PVC pipe), and you've got a cheap-ass bow that's probably 30-35 pounds. Nobody's going to accuse you of having precision shooting equipment, but it's sufficient for farting around.

Neat, but I think the disappearance of this probably had more to do with the disappearance of professional armies in Europe during the middle ages rather than the advent of firearms.

I still want to have this man's babies and I will pay for whatever surgeries are required to make it possible.

I'm so sick of this guy! I mean, yeah, he's an awesome archer and all, doing great work in the field of HEMA (HWMA?) archery, but HEY! Guy! Ease up on the rockstar lifestyle would ya.

Why can't he throw a ball?!?
His specialty is bows, not throwing. We need to assemble an all-Euro team of adventurers who go around and kick ass: Lars from Denmark (bow), Jörg from Germany (slingshot), and so on.
Hey, that's actually a really great idea, Bort! Lars and Jorg would be a perfect addition to the Chop Gear team: Lindybeige, Schola, and Skallagrim. Lloyd, Schola, and Skall are all melee guys, so they'll need a few ranged attackers to round out their adventuring party.
That leaves one spot left for a party healer. Who should it be?
Winny Puuh, perhaps? Casting time is pretty long but they can defy gravity and shit, and they've got a Baltic pre-Christian feel to them:
Historical trivia: the last place in Europe to go Christian was the Baltic, with their own special crusades from the late 1100s to the 1300s. Basically the events from "The Lion in Winter" thru "Braveheart" are happening over in Britain, while in Eastern Europe they're still trying to convert pagans.
You'd have to find some sort of Medieval medicine geek, which is hard, because the only people interested in Medieval medicine anymore are the holistic medicine nutjobs, and they usually have no respect for history, preferring instead to bury all the interesting, historically-relevant bits underneath their stupid New Age granola nonsense.
There is already a half assembled USA team in the cold steel meat slicer boys that they can go up against. Throw in that Korean archer and that uber-mental Samurai guy.
Also there are quite a few Roman siege weapons experts in The Old Country.
