What you'll do

Japanese archery(KYUDO) is historically used for battle, politics, education, or Buddhism.

Though this online 45 minutes class, I would like to show you the charm of Japanese archery with some interesting video clips, and with my LIVE shooting a bow at my room.

Then, I can instruct you some hidden points of Japanese archery.
Even if you can come to Tokyo and join my archery class now, I cannot instruct you some of these points on the site, at the archery court.

In this online program, for example, I can show you some of very interesting KYUDO festivals and their back ground.
And KYUDO is composed with "8 motions". I can show you each motion amusingly with video clips.

Plus, I need to tell something about the close relationship between ZAZEN, spiritual points and Japanese archery.

I prepared some Quiz about Archery, and at each end of topic, we have Q&A session, then I hope you don't hesitate to have mutual communication.
:-)

The following topics are for this online experience.

2. Real demonstration of KYUDO (at home)
3. Japanese archery for modern generation: Animation, Video game
4. 8 necessary motions of KYUDO
5. The most lively KYUDO festival: 2000 players join join in Kyoto
6. The most difficult KYUDO, ride running hose with 40km/h, and hit the target
7. At a Buddhist Temple, KYUDO and ZAZEN
8. For the guests who would like to start KYUDO
9. Q&A

Host of this experience: Daichi

I've been an Airbnb host for Japanese Archery (KYUDO).
https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/239719

I have been practicing Kyudo since I was a high school student, and I obtained the title of master after years of training.

In the past, I faced many problems while practicing Kyudo, and in order to address them physically and mentally, I took up ZEN-meditation, Yoga, chiropractic and sports medicine.

Now, not only do I coach skilled Japanese Archery players who have much more long years experience in KYUDO than me, but I also work as a sports trainer for various types of athletes such as marathon runners, baseball players, and martial artists.

I had a great one to one experience learning zazen during this session. I have done Zen for four years, but this was a whole new perspective and I learned a lot and had fun with Jun.

This was a really special class and experience. The class teaches you about how mentally strong people can get through the toughest times. I think now more than ever we need to be mentally strong and the class helped me start that journey. Jun is friendly, knowledgeable, and kind. I learned a lot about Japanese culture/history and connecting the body with the mind.

Jun was very knowledgeable on the topics of Samurai, Japanese History, and Zen meditation. This experience was a great primer and I will incorporate some of these new skills into my regular meditation practice.

I was introduced to samurai martial art practices. He demo’d his practice and in preparation, showed us zazen postures and how to gain more fluidity in movement. I learned great useful tips to start a zazen practice.

Got an authentic experience of virtually meeting a Japanese Samurai. Daichi is very personable and friendly. Though English is not his first language, he tries to make every effort to make the experience as interesting as he can.
