    Thanks Jeff, and Josh.

    After a little more inspection, and finding some photos, they do seem to be using a version of an ebira, albeit affixed to the rear rather than the flank. It's a clever design. Not unlike some modern bow and hip quivers, but the string's the real genius; gives you control over how the arrows sit/spread.

    I might have to try my hand and creating a replica to play with...

    Ebira photos (best I found):

    A little trivia, a google image search for "ebira" will get you a lot of pictures of African people. Searching "japanese ebira" gets you a lobster monster and a harem of scantily-clad Japanese women. Is Ebira a popular name, by chance?

    It would help if you used the kanji in search engine ie 箙. As to the shirmp images.... えび ie ebi is shrimp and it looks like style of cooking shrimp maybe? or at least form quick google search I just did using えびら。Hope that helps you some.

    Looks like it's ebi-ra, like goji-ra and mosu-ra. I don't remember a Godzilla flick with a shrimp monster, but then I doubt I've seen even a quarter of them.

    EDIT: And thanks for the kanji, it definitely improves the search accuracy

    Default MuyoShingetsu-Ryu

    Can anyone provide information about this Kyudo ryuha?
    MuyoShingetsu-Ryu 無影心月流 の 欧洲道場 is available to me within an hours drive. I want to establish a bit of information about the school before I go any further and waste their time.

    Are they an off-shoot from a more well known school? Do they concentrate on the internal aspects or more on technique? What is the history of the school and its' founder?

    Any help would be welcome as information in English and even Japanese (once translated) seems very light.

    I'll give you the short version: founded by Umeji Kenran who died in 1951. Focuses on the "mind" aspect of kyudo. Was greatly respected by Awa Kenzo, the teacher in "zen in the art of archery" and himself into the "mind" stuff. Very small following, most kyudo practitioners in Japan wouldn't have heard of it, or if they did, will know nothing about it. I.e. Not a koryu if that's what your looking for.
