Kyujutsu is the Japanese form of archery, it is the technique of fighting with the bow. It has been around for many centuries and at one point in history it was the primary weapon of the samurai class of Japan. It was used in battles amongst the various clans in feudal Japan.
The Japanese Yumi bow is over two metres tall and is used whilst shooting from various positions including standing, kneeling and lying down. Students also learnt to fire in formations, even whilst moving.
Throughout the Kyujutsu journey the students are graded and attend seminars with trained instructors from other clubs in Europe.
The Dragons Lair Kyujutsu club is the only recognised Kyujutsu School within Ireland with fully qualified instructors.
