Upcoming Events in 2020

The Shuuko Kyudojo hosts and participates in seasonal programs occurring at all times of the year.  See the listings below for basic information and direction to contacts about upcoming events at other dojo locations or see our dedicated program tab above for Shuuko Programs being held in Amherst, MA [when offered].  Program appearance and frequency may vary.

All equipment and supplies for beginning students are provided – no purchases of equipment to participate are necessary. Please wear suitable clothing that allows for full freedom of movement.  We suggest bringing top and bottom layers for programs with outdoor practice facilities and for programs, indoor and or outdoor, held during colder parts of the year.   For those already owning them, personal uniforms (keikogi, hakama, and obi) are recommended.  Please see the given program director if uniforms are available for purchase.

- Upcoming Kyudo Events in 2020 -



With consciousness of the current global situation and the concern of its members, the Shuuko Kyudojo will suspend live practice activities until further notice in support of the advisement from our host facility, Hampshire College, and all surrounding government level mandates.
We deeply look forward to regaining the ability to practice as we know it but will continue to act in the interest of our community’s well-being as advised by Hampshire College and local state announcements.

The following information about events coming up in summer 2020 is listed here with optimism that we might be able to attended them in our future.  The Shuuko Kyudojo does not endorse the attendance of said events against the better judgment of your local town/state.   We sincerely support any and all precautions kyudo practitioners are observing at this time.  We look forward to announcing our re-opening with cheer when that time becomes appropriate.

With care, heart and support,
Yours in budō,
     Samuel Kanner, Head Instructor
     Shuuko Kyudojo
     Hampshire College – Amherst, MA
