Osterreichischer Kyudo-Verband

Kyudo in Austria started in the fall of 1986, when Diethard Leopold returned from Miyazaki / Kyushu, as a 3-Dan. He founded the first ”Seishin Kyudo-Club” in Austria February 27th, 1987. Members were shomen and later also shamen, mainly taught by Feliks Hoff, Germany. As the number of clubs increased, the Austrian Kyudo Federation was founded May 7th, 1995.
