Kyudo Zen Archery
Kyudo, which literally means The Way of the Bow, is considered by many to be the purest of all the martial ways. Its practice peels away the protective layers of ego that we all hide behind and allows our true nature to be revealed.
In the past, the Japanese bow was used for hunting, war, court ceremonies, games, and contests of skill. Modern Kyudo is practiced primarily as a method of physical, moral, and spiritual development. Kyudo is practiced in 3 ways: Sports, Martial Art & Meditation.
Kyudo is traditionally practiced in a specialized DOJO (Training Facility for Shooting Arrows) with Shooting House, Target House & the distance range from 3 meters to 60 meters.
