Federation de Kyudo Traditionnel - France

Kyudo has a very good development in France because French people love and respect Japanese culture, and because they can find answers to their expectations through Kyudo. It helps to keep mind and body in good health until old age. The respect of Shin - Zen - Bi in every action creates an authentic harmony in relationship between members, with other countries and with the Ministry of Education, Sports and Culture. Last but not least, modern Kyudo helps “to strive for perfection as a human being”. French Kyudo Federation is confident in the future development of Kyudo because of these universal values and promotes Kyudo through initiation seminars, demonstrations, information booths, newspaper articles, websites, and TV and radio programs. Several seminars and tournaments are held each year at national and regional levels. All French members are deeply grateful to ANKF for teaching and helping Kyudo development in France.
