Kyudo, or Japanese archery, means the "way of the bow." In ancient Japan, kyudo was considered the highest discipline of ancient Japanese samurai. Kyudo is based on standing Zen meditation and was used by Zen Buddhist monks as a means of cultivating meditative awareness and as a path of self-realization. Lecture and demonstration featuring the Edgerton Center high-speed camera. Organized by the MIT-Japan program, Byakko-kyudojo.
