射法訓
Shahō Kun
Principles of Shooting by Master Junsei Yoshimi.

射法は弓を射ずして骨を射ること最も肝要なり。
Shahō wa yumi wo izushite hone wo iru koto mottomo kanyō nari.
The way is not with the bow, but with the bone, which is of the greatest importance.

心を総体の中央に置き、
Kokoro wo sōtai no chūō ni oki,
Placing Spirit (Kokoro) in the centre of the whole body,

而して弓手三分の二弦を推し、
shikōshite yunde sanbun no ni tsuru wo oshi,
with two-thirds of the Yunde (left arm) push the string,

妻手三分の一弓を引き、
mete sanbun no ichi yumi wo hiki,
and with one-third of the Mete (right arm) pull the bow,

而して心を納む是れ和合なり。
shikōshite kokoro wo osamu kore wagō nari.
Spirit settled, this becomes harmonious unity.

然る後に胸の中筋に従い、
Shikaru nochi ni mune no nakasuji ni shitagai,
From the centre line of the chest,

宜しく左右に分るる如くこれを離つべし。
yoroshiku sayū ni wakaruru gotoku, kore wo hanatsubeshi.
divide the left and right equally into release.

書に曰く、鉄石相剋して火の出づること急なり。
Sho ni iwaku, tesseki aikokushite hi no iduru koto kyū nari.
It is written, the the collision of iron and stone will release sudden sparks;

即ち金体白色西半月の位なり。
Sunawachi kintai hakushoku, nisi hangetsu no kurai nari.
and thus there is the golden body, shining white, and the half moon positioned in the west.

  1. 小小的糾錯,第四句中英文部分的mete寫成了meto。Kyo桑的弓道文章給我這樣的弓道入門新人很多幫助和啟發。感謝!
