Kyudo, or Japanese archery, means the "way of the bow". Kyudo is based on standing Zen meditation used by Zen Buddhist monks as a means of cultivating meditative awareness and as a path of self-realization. Beginners will receive instruction in the basic form of kyudo, the "Seven Coordinations," at a short-range target. Intermediate students will be able to shoot long-distance at 28 meters. Cosponsored by Byakko-kyudojo.
