Kyudo First Shot – Beginner Japanese Archery

  • Karme Choling 369 Patneaude Lane Barnet, VT, 05821 United States (map)

Registration is now open.
This program will provide training in Kyudo's Seven Coordinations, shichi-do, the basic form for aligning the body and properly releasing the arrow. Working with the precision of the form, a natural process gradually unfolds through which the practitioner has the opportunity to see the mind more clearly. The target becomes a mirror which reflects the qualities of heart and mind at the moment of the arrow's release. This distinguishes kyudo from archery where simply hitting the target is the goal. 

All are welcome, regardless of age, gender, or physical strength. Children should be at least 9 years of age. All necessary equipment will be provided. Schedule
The program begins Friday at 1:30 PM, plan to arrive between 10:30 AM and noon to register and settle in, lunch is at 12:30. The program ends Sunday at 3:00 PM. Participants should attend the entire program. For questions regarding the program please contact: Grace DiNapoli
