The White Rose Kyudojo
The aim of London’s oldest kyudo club is friendship and understanding through practise and the sharing of information. As well as regular weekly training throughout the year, national and international workshops are held to help us achieve this aim.
We welcome beginners, as well as intermediate and advanced kyudo archers of all styles. You can start learning kyudo at any time of the year, and will not be required to purchase a bow, arrows and shooting-glove until you have been training with us regularly for at least a year.
We train in a sports hall built for the 2012 Olympics. This allows us to have at least ten shooting lanes in operation at the same time, together with dedicated areas for beginners and for the performance of ceremonial forms of kyudo.
We practise a number of different styles of kyudo and kyujutsu with direct guidance from masters in Japan, including the seitei forms of modern kyudo.

Please contact us to arrange a visit so that you can watch a training session.
Our senior instructors, male and female, have over twenty-five years’ experience of practising and teaching kyudo both in Europe and Japan. Each month, we have a training session under the guidance of a Japanese master by way of video link to Japan.
There is an annual fee of £20 to cover insurance and administration, and £10 per training session. Our instructors give their time for free, and all fees and donations are used to support the practice.
Over eighteens only, unless accompanied by a practising parent.
We are honoured to have Stephanie, the Lady Grey, whose family established the famous tea blend known all around the world, as our patroness.
