Kyudo New Year Shooting

On 14 January, the New Year's shooting of the Kyudo department took place. In the year of the Wooden dragon we chose Mushu and his porridge from Mulan as our target. The task was to hit a fried egg. Our makiwara shooters did really well at short range.

Our successful and justifiably proud Makiwara archers. The makiwara is a roll of rice straw, approx. 45 cm in diameter and is used for practising at short range (2m).

In addition to Mushu and his oatmeal, we had other mato for target games such as sliding eyes, chips with mayo and ketchup and squares with different scores. However, due to the low temperatures in the hall, the artistically designed discs for the 28m distance were very 'spared'.

There was great joy afterwards. Peter had baked us two chocolate cakes. To Johannes' delight, one was even vegan. Leftovers - just crumbs.
