Kyudo South Africa

The way of the Bow

Kyudo "The way of the bow" is the modern Martial Art of Japanese Archery


The South African Kyudo Renmei is a privately funded initiative established to teach a form of traditional Japanese archery known as Kyudo.


Kyudo is the traditional Japanese practice that uses the act of shooting the Japanese bow for the cultivation of the person and the development of physical and mental well being. It is now a worldwide practice that has both cultural and sporting aspects. Kyudo places greater emphasis on the beauty of form, with accuracy being seen as an expression of correct shooting rather than "hitting for hitting sake" 

There is no combat in Kyudo and physical strength is not too much of a factor allowing anybody to study Kyudo.
