To Know KYUDO is To Love KYUDO!

Good afternoon or Good evening!

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!
