Sometimes the Japanese can be too kind to foreigners. I was looking at this video which shows a sensei shooting through a hole in clear plastic which is done in cold climate shooting. But then the video cuts to a gaijin who clearly has never shot a Japanese bow before. The sensei in the video has given him a glove and allows him to try shooting into a makiwara. He misses the makiwara.
Like I said, sometimes the Japanese can be a little too sweet, "amai" to foreigners.
