Welcome to Southern California Naginata Federation


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.
