Kyudo Notebook: Shinsa Questions for 3-Dan


The Kyudo Kyohon describes this level as, “The shooting form is better established and the formal movement (taihai) is more stable. The breathing is ordered and the method of using shooting technique is correctly obeyed. The arrow should fly straight, and there should be more consistency in hitting the target.” So here it seems like a person has reached the point where the movements have become more smooth and refined. Consistency is rumoured to mean that at least one arrow should hit.
