10-year anniversary

10-year anniversary

Version fraçaise – 10 ans de Kyudo ! Anniversaire

On June 23, 2014, the dojo was inaugurated. It has since enabled hundreds of people to come and practice Kyudo in ideal conditions in this unique venue in the Paris region.

This long-standing project came to fruition thanks to the efforts of Claude Luzet (Kyoshi 6th dan Kyudo), with financial support from the Traditional Kyudo Federation, Seine et Marne Senator Vincent Eblé and the Noisiel town council, including Mayor Daniel Vachez.

The founding work lasted from 2012 to 2014, and continues today with a number of improvements, including last year’s covered patio.

Two successive days for this anniversary (Paris time GMT +2). On Saturday, all kyudo clubs are invited to a friendly long-distance competition.
