Naginata is a traditional Japanese blade that comes in the form of a pole weapon. Atarashi Naginata is a martial arts discipline using a naginata with wood shaft and a bamboo “blade”. Practice of naginata is more than mastery of the weapon; respect, discipline and proper state of mind are just as important as physical development.

"...to embrace self-reflection; to have the humility to praise one's opponent - these are the kinds of things I hope we can learn through our naginata training." - Kimura Yasuko (Tendo-Ryu, 17th Souke)
