For the past 850 years, the Ogasawara family has been teaching the ancient samurai ritual of yabusame—a style of combat involving archery on horseback. Kiyomoto Ogasawara is the 32nd generation of the Ogasawara clan to share his knowledge at the school, which currently has about 700 students. By day, Kiyomoto has a demanding career in medicine, but he still finds time to serve as headmaster of the school. For him, there is great satisfaction in providing a place for Japanese people to learn about their cultural identity.
