Japanese Archery for Teens and Tweens

with Grace Dinapoli

June 21 - 23, 2019

Kyudo for Teens & Tweens

During this program students learn a step-by-step method for drawing a bow and shooting an arrow. Young archers quickly learn that by slowing down and focusing on one step at a time, they are able to achieve a smooth release of the arrow. Drawing a bow strengthens core muscles, which improves balance and stability. In turn, balance and stability improve posture, and hand-eye coordination.

Archery has many benefits, including confidence building, stress release, and improved focus, all while doing a fun exercise.

Participants should attend the entire program. All necessary equipment will be provided. For questions regarding the program contact Grace DiNapoli at gdinapoli@karmecholing.org
