Extractions: Kyudo is an elegant, ceremonial, non-combative method of shooting the traditional Japanese bow and arrow. Kyudo requires, and therefore develops, a balanced body that works in concert with a peaceful mind. Kyudo , literally "the Way (or Path) of the Bow", is a path that takes a lifetime to travel. Early progress in the basic forms of Kyudo soon give way to deeper insights into specific details. Each successive insight leads the student to a greater appreciation of the depth, subtlety and sincerity of the Kyudo experience. One of Japan's oldest and purest martial arts, today Kyudo is practiced by men and women throughout the world. Kostenloses Joomla Template von funky-visions.de

Extractions: Jump to: navigation search Previous (Kyrgyzstan) Next (KyÅ«shÅ«) Kyudo (å¼é) (The "Way of the Bow") is the Japanese art of archery. It is a Japanese martial art in which archers use a tall Japanese bow (the yumi ) made of bamboo , wood, and leather using techniques which have not changed for centuries. As with other martial arts, Zen Buddhist philosophies and principles are applied in Kyudo in achieving a certain state of mind in the practice of the art. Thus, Kyudo remains as an important aspect of Japanese culture and roots itself deeply more as a tradition than a sport. It is estimated that there are approximately half a million practitioners of kyudo today. In Japan , by most accounts, the number of female kyudo practitioners is at least equal to and probably greater than the number of male practitioners. In its most pure form, kyudo is practiced as an art and as a means of moral and spiritual development. Many archers practice kyudo simply as a sport, with marksmanship being paramount. However, the highest ideal of kyudo is "seisha seichu," "correct shooting is correct hitting." Practitioners of kyudo strive for the unique action of expansion (nobiai) that results in a natural release. Shooting with correct spirit and balance results in the arrow hitting the target. It is a spiritual goal to give oneself completely to shooting the arrow. Some kyudo practitioners believe that competitions, examinations, and demonstrations are an important means of challenging the student to achieve perfection, while others avoid competitions or examinations of any kind.

The Spirit of Kyudo Kyudo is considered by many to be the purest of all the martial ways. In the past, the Japanese bow was used for hunting, war, court ceremonies, games, and contests of skill. The original word for Japanese archery was kyujutsu (bow technique) which encompassed the skills and techniques of the warrior archer. Some of the ancient schools, known as ryu, survive today, along with the ancient ceremonies and games, but the days where the Japanese bow was used as a weapon are long past. Modern kyudo is practiced primarily as a method of physical, moral, and spiritual development. No one knows exactly when the term kyudo came into being but it was not until the late nineteenth century when practice centered almost exclusively around individual practice that the term gained general acceptance. The essence of modern kyudo is said to be synonymous with the pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty. To give oneself completely to the shooting is the spiritual goal. In this respect, many kyudo practitioners believe that competition, examination, and any opportunity that places the archer in this uncompromising situation is important, while other practitioners will avoid competitions or examinations of any kind.

(Cultural News Photo) By Takeshi Nakayama PASADENA , California â On a recent Saturday night at the Pasadena Japanese Cultural Institute, a dedicated group of enthusiasts gathers for a regular practice session of the little-known martial art of kyudo (Japanese archery), conducted by Hirokazu Kosaka, chairman of Nanka Kyudo K ai. Kosaka, a former priest at Koyasan Buddhist Temple in Little Tokyo from 1975-80, starts off the class with meditation, followed by recitation of a Buddhist chant. Then, Rick Beal, Nanka Kyudo-kai president, joins two advanced archers to begin the practice. Each archer takes deliberate aim with 7-1/2-foot-long bow and shoots at the target from close range. The rest of the class, in kyudo attirewhite blouses, black skirt-pants and white tabi (footwear)follows their lead. Kyudo first came to Los Angles, with scattered practitioners, as early as 1908.

Extractions: "The Way of the Bow" Kyudo is a Japanese target archery martial art. It is a highly meditative martial art whose ultimate goals are Shin (Truth), Zen (Goodness) and Bi (Beauty). Styles can be divided into two broad categories, shamen uchiokoshi and shomen uchiokoshi. Shamen archers predraw the bow at an angle to the body and fix their grip on the bow before raising it. Shomen archers raise the bow straight over the head and fix their final grip on the bow in a predraw above the head. It is the oldest of Japan's traditional martial arts. The bow has been used in Japan since prehistoric times. From the fourth to the ninth century, close contacts between China and Japan had a great influence on Japanese archery, especially the Confucian belief that through a person's archery their true characters could be determined. Over hundreds of years archery was influenced by the Shinto and Zen Buddhist religions along with the pressing practical requirements of warriors. Court nobles concentrated on ceremonial archery while the warrior class emphasized kyujutsu, the martial technique of using the bow in actual warfare. With the introduction of firearms the bow as a weapon was neglected and almost died out all together until Honda Toshizane, a kyudo instructor at Tokyo Imperial University, combined elements of the warrior style and the court ceremonial style into a hybrid style which ultimately became known as the Honda Ryu (Honda martial school). With the American occupation banning all martial art instruction, traditional kyujutsu schools declined further and when the ban was lifted, Kyudo, as opposed to kyujutsu, became widely practiced. The Zen Nihon Kyudo Federation (All Japan Kyudo Federation) was established in 1953, publishing the standard kyudo textbook called the Kyohon. There now exists a European Kyudo Federation.

Ron Jones is the current instructor of the One-Step Style of Kyudo for Big Green Drum Japanese Martial Arts. He started studying Kyudo nine years ago. Kyudo , the Way of the Bow, is one of Japan's oldest and most honored martial traditions. Over the course of Japanese history and under the influence of Shinto beliefs, Confucian morality, and Buddhist philosophy (including, but not limited to Zen), the technique of archery flowered into the art of kyudo, where archery is practiced as a Way of seishin tanren, or "spiritual forging." The diligent practice of kyudo provides both healthful exercise and a way for cultivating self-awareness and spiritual maturity, eventually leading to the realization of "Shin Zen Bi," or "Truth, Goodness and Beauty" in the life of the archer. The One-Step Style of Kyudo practiced in Pensacola is non-denominational. It is not a religion but is used primarily as a method of physical, moral, and spiritual development.
