This year the International Heki Taikai (the friendly competition of the heki kyudo archers from all over the globe) was held again in Hungary, in the city Hajdúnánás, by the Hungarian Kyudo team Bukyukai Kyudojo (from Budapest ). This was the 8th time since 2009 when the Heki Taikais started with the initiative of Professor Mori.
This year was a special time because the days before the competition a seminar was held by Professor Mori himself, who remained for the time of the Heki Taikai.
In all, 11 teams applied to the competition which has taken place in good mood despite the capricious weather.
