For beginners in Kyudo, this is an explanation of Torikake.
What to prepare.
Yumi, Tsuru, Kake.
This section explains the important points of Torikake.
Try Torikake first.
If done correctly, the posture can be maintained even when the left hand is removed.
At this point, the arrow and the floor will be parallel.
There are three points of support.
The first point is Kake.
Next, the part where the bow and arrow touch.
And the left knee.
It is supported by these three points.
Suppose the arrow was pointing upward.
As shown in the picture above, the tip of the bow does not rest on the knee.
If you try to do it forcefully, you will end up grabbing the arrow like this.
This is not just Torikake.
The point of doing Torikake correctly.
The front of Torikake is important. I put my hands on my waist.
Move your hand straight to the desired position.
Do not draw an arch.
Then attach the Tsuru to the Kake.
Then attach your fingers like this.
This is Torikake.
This is where Syaho begins. This is a very important movement, so please practice it carefully.
Thank you for reading to the end.
