Today, we’re introducing about Kyudo, which is similar to archery, but a traditional sport in Japan. There is 8 sections to shot a bow. The process is called “shahouhassetsu (射法八節).” The first section is“ashibumi(足踏み).” This action requires strong body trunks.
The second section is“dozukuri(胴造り)” In this action, we have to concentrate on one thing, and keep our balance.
The third section is “yugamae(弓構え).” This section is the preparation to pull the bow.
The fourth section is “uchiokoshi(打起こし).” This action is pulling up the bow over the head.
These are the first half sections. Next time, we will introduce the latter half.
Kyudo is not so familiar around the world. But, our KYUDO club is so attractive! We want to spread the attraction of KYUDO all over the world. We wish you’ve got interested in KYUDO!

Hello, everyone! We are the team L.I.N.C.( Local and International Network Creation )! This year, we mainly update this HP in English, introducing our school days. We’d like to know what you want to know about Saijo High School. Please press the like button and tell us what you like. Thank you for watching and reading!
In Saijo High School, students are encouraged to study spontaneously and collaboratively. We should cherish and preserve this atmosphere.
The Group Matches in 2022 has started. Students and teachers are divided into four groups ( Bujo:red / Hiuchi:blue / Ishizuchi:green / Kojo:yellow). The inauguration ceremony was held in Hiuchi Athletic Stadium. Each student did the best, and enjoyed cheering their group members. The bonds of the groups have become deeper, and will be much deeper.
Students of Saijo High School did their best. Many people were impressed by the efforts of the students. Many clubs have obtained the right to participate in the prefectural tournament. They will continue to strive to advance to the national competition. Please support them, and look forward to their success in the near future!!
Our soccer club broke through the wall. They’ve qualified for the prefectural tournament for the first time in twelve years! Please continue your support!!
Since last year, students in 206 ( who belong to the science and mathematics course ) have had a special class once a week. They learn physics and biology in English. We call it S.E.T. (Science in English on Thursday). In this class, both students and physics or biology teachers, with the help of English teachers, try to use English as much as possible!!
Anaelle has joined her homeroom class, 206. Students are excited to welcome their new classmate. She takes part in a lot of activities here. The experience surely will be beneficial for her and students of Saijo High School!
