Kyudo Hassetsu Japanese Archery Book By Tatsuo YamanishiSKU: BO9963A-BD
By Tatsuo Yamanishi. Kyudo is the Japanese martial art of archery. Experts in kyudo are commonly referred to as kyudoka. Based on kyujutsu (the "art of archery"), kyudo originated with the samurai class of feudal Japan, and today is practiced by thousands of people worldwide. Here, the kyudo hassetsu (teaching the eight individual parts of this historic Japanese art) explores each element in turn: The Ashibumi (footing), Dozukuri (forming the torso), Yugamae (readying the bow), Uchiokoshi (raising the bow), Hikiwake (drawing apart), Kai (full draw), Hanare (release), Zanshin (form, or remaining spirit). This book provides an essential review of and instruction on the kyudo hassetsu, with illustrative examples of how to perform each of the eight points correctly, and how kyudo has been performed since the days of the samurai. 24 pages. 8.5" x 11". Paperback.
