Kyudo Japanese Longbow Archery


Adult and Senior / Fitness -
Adult Enrichment 2020-2021

Influenced by the culture of Japan’s samurai warriors, Imperial Court, and Shinto and Buddhist traditions, Kyudo is practiced as a means to self-improvement. The non-competitive and introspective nature of Japanese archery allows practitioners to gain insight into their personalities. Individual instruction is given by Carly Born (Renshi 5th dan) and John Born (5th dan). Visit www.mnkyudo.org for more information. Students registered this fall will have an opportunity to participate in lectures and practical seminars from a guest instructor at Carleton College details given in class!

*Instructors will collect an additional $25 to cover the cost of your own practice bow and $35 for annual membership in the Minnesota Kyudo Renmei Association. Loaner equipment provided for most adults.

John Born

Carly and John Born began their study of Kyudo in the spring of 1997 in Niigata, Japan. Their love for this unique art endured when they returned to the United States in the fall of 1999, and they have since been active in the American and international Kyudo communities and events. While pursuing their own study and advancing in rank, they have introduced hundreds of people to Kyudo through community education courses, frequent demonstrations at cultural
festivals, and traditional archery competitions.
