Participating in the practice

Students who have previous experience in practicing Kyudo can participate the regular classes at any time.

Kyudo Equipment

You don't need any equipments to participate the beginner course. You can share our equipments at our regular classes.  First thing I recommend you to purchase is "Yugake" glove.  Because it will take a couple of weeks or months to get it, I recommend you to order once you become sure that you will continue to practice Kyudo.  Here are the websites you can order your glove.


Choose three finger hard wrist glove, if there are choices.
Let us know if you have any questions.
