The bow itself, which is traditionally known as the Yumi, is a large contraption standing well over 2 meters in height and is made from pliable bamboo wood. The technique of shooting the Yumi requires each practitioner to draw the bow above their head using their right hand to pull.
The stages of shooting are meticulous and are separated into eight distinct stages. Kyudo is a non-combat style of martial art but the use of arrows can still result in accidents being caused. Taking out personal cover is recommended to ensure you are protected against any eventuality that may arise.
