SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA NAGINATA FEDERATION - NAGINATA
The mission of the Southern California Naginata Federation is to provide our students with the knowledge and tools to practice quality Naginata while instilling self-confidence, self-discipline, respect towards others, stamina, grace, and good health.
The naginata is a Japanese polearm weapon consisting of a long wooden shaft with a curved blade attached at the end. Atarashii Naginata is the primary style practiced today. It has two main parts: Predetermined kata techniques and shiai matches with protective armor.
