German Kyudo Federation

Since more than 40 years, people practice Kyudo in Germany. Today, there are approximately 1400 Kyudoka (30% are women), organized in the German Kyudo Federation (DKyuB). The DKyuB is member of the European Kyudo Federation (EKF) and International Kyudo Federation (IKYF). 80% of the German Kyudoka practice according the rules of the Heki-Ryu-Insai-Ha, 20% practice shomen. Kyudoka of all ages are training in more than 50 clubs whereas 11 clubs hold traditional Kyudojos. The DKyuB arranges every year competitions in Kinteki and Enteki as well as educational programs for trainees and trainers. From the beginning, the German Kyudoka have been supported by teachers from Japan. Since 1968, Prof. Inagaki Genshiro, 9. Dan Hanshi visited Germany almost every year to teach Kyudo. After he passed away, this tradition is maintained by his disciples. Since the foundation of the EKF in 1980, high graded teachers of the ANKF and IKYF also visit Germany and Europe.
The members of the German Kyudo Federation express their cordial gratitude to all Japanese teachers for their continuous support. Furthermore, we look forward for a mutual collaboration.
