Associacao Portuguesa de Kyudo

The Portuguese Kyudo Association has been founded by a group of enthusiasts under the guidance of sensei S. Yokokoji, in the fall of 1992. A open air dojo was used in the neighborhood of the picturesque fishing village of Sesimbra, 30 Km south of Lisbon. After a period of intense practice with mr. Yokokoji the group took part in the European Kyudo Seminar, for the first time, in Germany, 2000, with great success. Since then the regular practice as been maintained and a considerable number of new members have joined the club. Additionally to participate in international seminars the group has been invited every year, sensei Maki Kudo to lead annually national seminars. The Sesimbra city council recognizing the importance of the kyudo association has granted the use of a magnificent place for erecting a traditional Kyudo dojo. We are now working on that.
