Seiwakai Q&A
1. How do I get started?
You are more than welcome to start your Kyudo training here at Seiwakai. We offer instructions and help for those of you who have little or no experience in Kyudo. Just send email to info@kyudo-wa.org, or leave a message on the site, prior to your visit, so we know when you are coming.

2. What equipments do I need for the beginner's practice?
No special equipment is needed. As you advance, some equipments may be available for loan from the club.

3. What is the learning process?
First, you will start out practicing the motions of drawing the bow (Hassetsu) through the following stages:
(1) Without any equipment
(2) Using an elastic band on a stick (gomuyumi)
(3) Using the bow (yumi) without arrows
(4) Shooting the makiwara target at very short range
(5) Shooting the target at the regulaion distance of 28 meters.

After achieving competency in all stages, you will then begin your study of the mental and spiritual sides of Kyudo

4. Why can't I use the bow right away?
You need to acquire good form of Hassetsu before you can use the bow. This is to avoid bad habits from developing, due to the fact that yumi is much more sensitive to errors than the western bow. If incorrectly used, it is easy to damage your fellow students, yourself or the equipment.

5. How long does it take to start shooting with bow?
It's known to kyudo practitioners that striving to improve the form and mental balance is a life long process. To reach the stage of shooting at a target, It depends on how long it takes for individual to learn the technique and perform it correctly. Expect several months to a year with consistent practice.

6. Where can I find more information on Kyudo?
