Training for advanced Kyudo practitioners. Taught in English. Translation upon request.

Kyudo is a living tradition of meditative archery, a powerful and highly refined contemplative practice. Led by Kanjuro Shibata XXI, Sensei, 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.
