    Kyudo (pronounced cue-doe) is a form of moving meditation sometimes called Zen archery. The focus of the practice is on “cleaning the mind” rather than on marksmanship. The target becomes a mirror reflecting  one’s mind at the moment of the arrow’s release. To begin the study of kyudo, students are required to take a First Shot program.

    First Shot is a series of four evening classes to introduce students to kyudo. A Toko Kyudojo instructor will introduce the practice and the equipment and will lead students through the Seven Coordinations that comprise our kyudo form. Upon completion of First Shot the participant is welcome to join weekly practice at the center and monthly long-distance practice upstate.
