Kyudo, or ‘the way of the bow’ is a Japanese martial art centred on archery.

Kyudo - the Japanese art of archery. "When an archer is shooting for fun he has all his skill. If he shoots for a brass buckle he is already nervous. If he shoots for a prize of gold he goes blind or sees two targets – he is out of his mind. His skill has not changed, but the prize divides him. He cares. He thinks more of winning than of shooting – and the need to win drains him of power." ~ Chuang Tzu
