GoPro camera used for Kyudo shot

The Brazil Kyudo Kai posted a facebook link to an interesting video from the Ritsumeikan University's Kyudo Club.  The club used a GoPro mobile camera to video a kyudo shot from the perspective of the archer!  First time I've seen that:




Yabusame too!




 

Morinaga sensei, Hanshi, 10th-dan

From a facebook posting by Howard Houng:
 これは3月の弓道雑誌からです。昨年、101歳でお亡くなにになれた森永先生(範士十段)はこいうお言葉がありました。
「生きがいは明日があること」とおしゃいました。その「明日」というのは弓がまだ引けることである。98歳までお引きになれました。とても尊敬する人物です。心からご冥福をお祈りいたします。

This is from the March issue of the Kyudo Magazine. Last year, Morinaga-sensei (Hanshi 10th-dan) passed away at the age of 101. He said "The purpose in life is that there is a tomorrow." What he meant by "tomorrow" was that there was a another day to able to shoot. He shot until the age of 98. I highly respect him as he is an inspiration during my practices. May he rest in peace.
