Overview
Kyudo is a Japanese martial art based on shooting an arrow from a Japanese bow to a target to reach a complete focus of mind and body. The main difference of kyudo and western archery is that, in kyudo, every movement follows a traditional routine that pays respect to the equipment and to the opponent. You will come to the archery range and dress in an authentic kyudo uniform, which will include dogi—the upper wear—and hakama—the lower wear. I'll give a brief explanation about the art of kyudo as well as instructions and demonstrations. With the knowledge you'll gain, you will learn to shoot arrows at the target. You'll also understand the fun and challenging aspect of the sport, particularly while wearing the traditional hakama and armor. Usually in kyudo, you are not allowed to pull the arrow unless you master the basics. But during our lesson, you will be able to enjoy the real kyudo experience even as a complete beginner. It will be a great time if you are looking for a nice photo or movie to show to your friends.

Excellent guidance and virtually immediate progress. Honsar was excellent at explaining the technique, and continually gave you tips to help you improve. He even took pictures and videos - sending them to us straight after our timeslot. Definitely recommended.

Honsar greeted me kindly and we got straight into it! Loved being immersed in the culture and being shown how to properly fire an arrow. He had a translator for when we couldn’t quite get language together but didn’t need it much at all. Honsar was great at making small
