What you'll do

Join this 3-hours experience and learn KYUDO, Japanese archery martial art.
Don a traditional beautiful KYUDO uniform, channel your inner samurai. and challenge for the target!

Usually when the beginner take up KYUDO in earnest, it takes several months of practice before they are allowed to actually shoot at a target.

However, this class lets you go straight into action.
But please understand that you are required to practice basic training for 1 hour and basic manners, before you shoot at a target.
I will guide you through every step to help you hit the target.
Not everyone can hit the target, even people who training over 10 years.
There’s more to kyudo than hitting the target; performing these fundamental movements correctly is also considered important.

Caution: We have some facilities to deal with this experience, according to the date.
Then after reservation, please be careful. I will inform you the location and details.

Host:(Mr.) Daichi
I have engaged in Kyudo since I was high school student, and I have gotten the title of master after long training.

I have experienced many problems in Kyudo, then I have read through many Japanese ancient documents for Kyudo.
And I have developed my own magnificent "Kyudo Theory".

With this Theory, I'm usually coaching not only young disciple, but also senior skillful Kyudo players.

I especially focus on "Body Position", and I can explain very logically how to move body, then any country's guests may try hit the target!!

This was an outstanding class with a very devoted and knowledgeable instructor. I am glad I took the time to take this class, and I feel much more experienced in this field than I thought was previously possible.

We had a great time with our Kyudo archery experience. Daichi was a very friendly and experienced teacher and provided expert insight into technique, the history and reasoning behind some of the techniques, and some of the differences between Kyudo and western archery. We thought there was plenty of individual attention given to each participant based on their skill levels. It was great to learn new skills and knowledge, and I'd recommend this experience to anyone.

We had a great experience with Daishi. The instruction was well planned out and individual attention was paid to all the participants needs. Plenty of equipment and we liked the complete cultural immersion including costumes and insight into the zen connection to kyudo!

Had a great time! Great value — thorough instruction but plenty of time left for actual practice with real bow and arrows! Kyudo is a difficult art to master but this was excellent introduction.

Loved the experience, more than I expected. I'm a big fan of learning technique in basic steps and having enough time at the end to put it to practice properly.

This was a birthday surprise for my husband. Daichi went the extra mile to help keep the surprise all the way until the gym where the Kyudo experience started! My husband cannot stop talking about how amazingly the experience was from the beginning, learning about the basics until actually using the bow for target practice. Daichi’s teachings allowed him to hit the target despite just beginning! At the end, Daichi even had a small birthday present waiting for him. This was a perfect lesson and Daichi’s hospitality made this an unforgettable experience.
