The Meishin Kyudo society was formed in 1975 and was one of the founding members of the national organisation. Its members participate on a regular basis in all United Kingdom and European events.
Kyudo means literally “way of the bow”. Historically it comes from two main lineages: mounted archery and archery on foot. These in turn, can be divided into a ceremonial tradition, which emphasised ritual and etiquette, and the warrior style, which expressed the vitality and technique for the battlefield. These two traditions have contributed to the development of Kyudo in its modern form as a discipline for peace and self-cultivation.
The Sensei (teacher) is Mike Cundy, Renshi, 5th Dan.
