The association Tendô
Created in 2008, the association Tendô aims at promoting Kyûdô, at teaching and developing it with passion and conviction, while respecting the ethics of the discipline.
Kyûdô (the way of the arch) is a Japanese martial art. Like most martial arts, Kyûdô is a discipline which leads to better self-knowledge.
Inherited from the Samurai, Kyûdô is now practiced as a physical, moral and spiritual development method, encouraging respect and some kind of ethics. Kyûdô is a quest for harmony between mind, body and the arch, but also with other archers. The archer has to be aware of his environment to achieve the perfect shot.
The main values of Kyûdô are truth -Shin-, virtue -Zen-, and beauty -Bi-, where the beauty of the shot relies on no need for strength. Kyûdô is a search for the perfect movement, the aesthetic gesture resulting from a real choreography.
