oh well when you are very short sighted, you have difficulty seeing things both near and afar. And that would mean having to use glasses during training classes too... which is not possible =( The only sports i can manage with my sight problems (and also i like.) are swiming and tennis and im doing both.
I guess that's fine. Training your body is important too so that you can move the body the way you want to during certain times. But short-sighted means you can see short distance fine right. And most martial arts deal with close combat so I don't really get why short-sighted is a problem.
You should try Kenichi (anime & manga).. since your practicing swordmanship and archery why not martial arts too =D Everytime i watch a martial art movie or anime i feel like wanting to try it but then my laziness beats me ^.^
