Kyudo: The Essence and Practice of Japanese Archery: a review

It’s a discipline, a meditation, a practice, and while one can easily learn the This falls under the heading of “books about things that you can’t learn to do from a book. It’s a discipline, a meditation, a practice, and while one can easily learn the techniques from proper instruction, one can never master it to perfection. This is why a kyudoka can practice an entire lifetime and still learn something new.

My favorite passages are at the end of the book and comprise conversation between Dan DeProspero and Onuma Sensei. Almost poetic in their nature, they illustrate the experience of one who has lived a lifetime of Kyudo, and leave the reader wanting more.

I didn’t give a full five stars because I didn’t want the reader to believe that this book will teach hapanese Kyudo. No book ever could.

However, like another reviewer said, kyudo can’t be taught solely from a book it’s like looking at a sculpture through pictures ; a serious student should consider finding a kyudo dojo arcchery at least someone to give hands-on training. I got this mainly because I was moving far from my teacher, so this is most useful as a reference into aspects that I slowly A wonderful book that touches most aspects of this arxhery art, with some great quotes from Onuma sensei in the interview section at the end.
