Kyudo Basics

Kyudo (Japanese archery) is a challenging and deceptively simple martial art. This 10 week course is an opportunity to learn the basics of form and etiquette in kyudo.

The following topics will be taught and practiced in the course:
•    the 8 stages of shooting (Hassetsu),
•    the correct form of movements(kihontai),
•    etiquette (rei),
•    and safety.

All equipment will be provided. Most practice will be done with rubber bows (gomuyumi). Shooting arrows will be dependent on personal level of achievement. This introductory course will run from Sept 8 to Nov 10 (10 lessons). For ages 16+  Cost: $120.00

Course registration is completed through the Fernwood Neighbourhood Resource Group (NRG).  (telephone: 381-1552 ext.100)
