kyudo (Japanese Archery)

I am running into a dead-end finding Kyudo (Yumi and Ya - Bow and Arrow) equipment for Kyudo here in the United States. Anybody know where I can find them?

Thanks in advance.

Re: kyudo (Japanese Archery)

There's a kyudo group in Santa Fe, New Mexico that might have some info: http://www.jinkokyudojo.com/

They link to an equipment site, don't know anything about it though: http://www.kyudo.com/asahiam.html

Re: kyudo (Japanese Archery)

Not only is the equipment expensive, but you can easily ruin a yumi if you don't know how to use it correctly. Beginning kyudo students may use practice tools such as a gomoyumi for months before using the real thing. Those with any experience will tell you not to bother unless you are practicing under a qualified teacher.
