THE INTERNATIONAL KYUDO FEDERATION ESTABLISHMENT MEETING 10th – 15th APRIL 2007, TOKYO.

Members of the United Kingdom Kyudo Association, including four members from Meishin Kyudo Society attended this event celebrating the establishment of the International Kyudo Federation. It was held at the All Japan Kyudo Association Central DoJo in Tokyo. Over three hundred Kyudo practitioners from 17 countries received instruction from Japanese teachers.

The Tokyo Central Dojo is a typical construction of the type to be found in most regions of Japan. It is large enough to accommodate ten archers shooting in two groups of five. A special feature is the rotating Azuchi (target area) that can be moved automatically to make room for Enteki shooting (shooting over 60 metres). In addition it has spacious rooms upstairs for Makiwara training (shooting at the close range target) and meetings.
