Beginning Kyudo: Japanese Archery is an Outdoors Program/Recreational Athletics class taught by Marion Taylor.

Course Description

Kyudo, the Way of the Bow, has been practiced in Japan for centuries. The form of the practice is considered a type of Ritsuzen or standing Zen. It is often practiced in monasteries as an actrive meditation in contrast to Zazen or seated meditation. The class will concentrate on learning the seven co-ordinations or step-by-step shooting form. The target, which is only six feet away, serves the archer as a mirror, reflecting the status of his mind and spirit. 5-College students will be graded pass/fail.
