Welcome to the Meishin Kyudojo homepage, a website maintained by Dan and Jackie DeProspero and dedicated to the instruction and advancement of Kyudo, the traditional art of Japanese archery. We invite you to explore our website to discover for yourself the beauty and elegance of one of Japan's most revered martial practices.
Choose one of the links on the left and allow us to share with you the knowledge of our teacher, the late Hideharu Onuma, 15th Generation Headmaster of Heki Ryu Sekka-ha and modern kyudo Hanshi Kyudan.
Learn also the history and philosophy of kyudo and how the art is practiced today around the world. Other pages will provide information on the use and care of kyudo equipment and links to resources that will further your knowledge of kyudo and provide you with insight on this wonderful art that is often referred to as a "Martial Art for the Mind."
The Meishin Kyudojo is nestled among tall pines and dogwoods a few miles outside Raleigh, NC. It is a privately owned, 5-person kyudojo and matoba built to allow kyudo practice in conformance with All Nippon Kyudo Federation procedural standards. Visitors are always welcome at the Meishin Kyudojo, but because it is on private property we ask that you contact us beforehand to schedule a visit.
