Kyudo Notebook: Slack

Well, maybe uchiokoshi was too low. At least raising it seemed to stabilize the arrows and I felt more balanced at kai. Probably a good decision. But there is something else going on: the left hand tends to bounce to the right at release, rather than moving left. I don’t think I’m actually pushing to the right. It’s more like the recoil of the bow at hanare is pulling it. Then, once yugaeri starts, the force of the bow pulls the hand back to the left. Clearly some slack has developed, so exploring that will be tomorrow’s task.
