The AKR office would like to share the following news with you this month. The IKYF event in Paris was successful and is now over and we have a couple of reports from team USA and the participants. Thank you very much for sharing your experiences with us.
We are thinking about bringing some topics from the Kyudo Magazine to AKR members. Although we cannot post everything, we think some of the articles in the Magazine can be summarized and introduced to you.
The AKR Update is created for all the registered AKR members. Please share it with your members equally. If you have any questions or suggestions to the AKR Update please let us know.
