Kyūjutsu (弓術?) ("art of archery"), is the traditional Japanese martial art of wielding a bow (yumi) as practiced by the samurai class of feudal Japan. Training involved the shooting of 1,000 arrows per day, and the techniques developed for their use were ritualized with systematic focus on the various stages of shooting and the mental attitude required for each. Additionally, many specialized tactics were developed for regiments of bowmen.
