How to attach Tsuru to your Yumi.
What to prepare.
Yumaki or Cushions.
An important point when attaching the Tsuru to the Yumi.
Do not mount the Tsuru with the Yumi directly against the wall or floor.
This will damage the wall or post.
If you have someone to help you, please ask them to hold the Yumi.
When done by one person.
Thus, place a Yumaki or cushion where the floor and the wall are in contact.
Twist the Tsuru slightly in the direction the Tsuru is twisted.
The Tsuru is then attached to the Yumi.
Lift the Yumi slightly.
The height of the lift will vary according to your size and stiffness.
Without moving the left hand, lift the Yumi upwards with the right hand.
It is important to lift with the right hand, not lower with the left.
If you push down with your left hand, the Yumi will break.
Lift up, sit back and place the Yumi on your left thigh.
Attach the Tsuru to the Yumi.
Yes, I was able to attach the Tsuru to the Yumi.
Once the Tsuru has been attached to the Yumi, remove the foot while it is still in place.
Do not draw the Yumi immediately after attaching the Tsuru to the Yumi.
If you draw the Yumi too soon it will break, so do some preparatory exercises to make the Yumi and Tsuru a little more familiar.

I am happy to help anyone who wants to play Kyudo.
