Masumi in grading for Renshi in Kyudo
Renshi (錬士) is the lowest instructor grade in Kyudo (弓道), which is one of Japanese popular martialarts and is archery. All those participants have the qualification of 5-th dan (五段) or higher. Yet the grading is severe and generally only a few of them will pass among scores of the participants. She had had well over a decade experience in Kyudo at this time, training almost every day, yet failed unfortunately.
