Instructor training for Kyudo practitioners combining the advanced and public programs. Taught in English. Translation upon request.

Kyudo is a living tradition of meditative archery, a powerful and highly refined contemplative practice. This programme is an intensive practice for advanced students of Bishu Chikurin branch of the Heki-ryu school of Kyudo.

Advanced students are expected to bring their own equipment (yumi, ya’s and kake) and to have ample experience with sishido as well as hitote shooting. We will be practicing Shamen.

Register for the combined programme if you wish to stay for the open programme, and are willing to assist beginners with first shot and makiwara practice (and be trained for that).
