About Us

In 2008, Mr. Korsakul Punyavardhana meets Mr. Masatake Yamaguchi, a Japanese gentlemen and Go-dan (五段) kyudoka who becomes his Kyudo Master, at Horseshoe Point Country Club in Pattaya. He studies under Mr. Masatake Yamaguchi for a year at Horseshoe Point where he meets fellow kyudoka, Mr. Isao Katsushika (Yo-dan/四段) and other before he founds Siam Kyudo Society group in Bangkok in 2010.

At the beginning Korsakul practice alone and thinking of creating a facebook group in order to gather all kyudo practicioners in Thailand. That works very well with Paolo Moscatelli (Ni-dan/二段) who just moved from Los Angeles where his sensei, Rick Beal, head coach at Nanka Kyudo Kai, points him to Siam Kyudo Society page. Korsakul and Paolo are later joined by Isao Katsushika.

Through the last few years, many people have been joining Siam Kyudo Society and practiced together with us. Siam Kyudo Society name was changed to Siam Kyudo Kai in 2013 and it keeps practicing since then.

Although, there is no sensei in our group at the moment, we share own knowledge and our door is always open for begininers and all kyudoka. You can contact us through this website or Facebook group.
