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!

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!
Anaelle, an exchange student from Germany, has started her new school life here!! All the students and teachers will support her so that her days in Saijo High School will be full of joy and friendship!!
We have a radio program, R.E.T.(Radio English Thursday), every Thursday, during lunch time. Members of E.S.S. ( English Speaking Society ) take turns broadcasting in English, inviting special guests. The first guest of this year is Mr. Nishimaru, a geography teacher. He talked about his hobbies and love for teaching. We hope this program will be a chance for students to be exposed to English, and students and teachers will enjoy it.
We have big and important tournaments called “the General Athletic Meet” this weekend. Students have been practicing hard for it every day. These pictures show how they are practicing. Please support Saijo High School!
