Kyudo Demonstration during the 2018 Kagamibiraki & Budo Hajime, at the Nippon Budokan.

--- Introduction ---
Since ancient times, the Sharei, the ceremonial shooting, was presented during religious ceremonies and other formal occasions. Traditional clothing is worn, representing a specific era and its traditions, and the shooting is executed based on the principle of Kikyo Shintai.
It is said “shooting begins with etiquette and ends with etiquette” meaning that one should act according to time, place and ranking of the situation. It is the main focus of Kyudo to reunite the shooting and etiquette in harmony.
Since ancient times, one’s goodness is polished through the bow and it has become an important tool to establish the ethical and moral structure of society.
In that sense, emphasizing the spiritual aspects with honesty and courteousness, the shooting allows to express one’s heart, and embodies the beauty of harmony.

Kyudo im Budokan Bensheim



Im Budôkan Bensheim gibt es seit November 2008 die Möglichkeit Kyûdô, japanisches Bogenschiessen, zu erlernen und in Gruppen zu üben.
Kyûdô bedeutet „Der Weg des Bogens und ist die japanische Form des Bogenschießens.
Bei dieser Budo Disziplin wird aus einer Distanz von 28m auf ein rundes Ziel (mato) geschossen. Der Schütze (kyûdôka) benutzt dafür einen asymmetrischen, japanischen Langbogen (yumi). Das Besondere an diesem Bogen ist zum einen die geschwungene Form, zum anderen jedoch auch das Baumaterial (Bambus und Holz) und die auffallende Länge (je nach Körpergröße zwischen 2,12m und 2,24m), bei der es keine Vorrichtungen zum Pfeilauflegen gibt, sondern nur einen Haltegriff, der im unteren Drittel des Bogens angebracht ist. Das Ziel beim Kyudo ist das Treffen der Zielscheibe in der korrekt ausgeführten Form. Kyudo besteht dabei zum einen aus einer Schießtechnik, den dazugehörigen formalen Abläufen und kann zugleich eine geistige Übung mit sich selbst sein.

Kyudo〜弓道①〜

In Japanese kyudo, archers use traditional asymmetric bows over 2 meters long as they attempt to strike a target from a distance of either 28 or 60 meters. Self-mastery is key in this exacting martial art, where the target is said to reflect the heart, and correct attitude and technique are seen as intertwined. We use a high-speed camera to track the path of a skilled archer's arrows as they fly through the air, shining a light on the depth and subtleties of kyudo's hidden techniques.

弓道①(Kyudo - The Way of the Bow)

We present a special feature on Kyudo, or traditional Japanese archery. Unlike western archery, Kyudo is not simply about striking a target, it is about observing the proper etiquette, actions and state of mind. We look into the history of the art and introduce the customs that govern its every aspect, from the instant the archer enters the dojo until the moment they leave.
