About us

Atarashii naginata training began in 2009 at Ki-Ken-Tai-Icch. The Confederation of Finnish Kendos Clubs was recognized as a member of the European Naginata Federation in 2013, which has finally established the status of the species in Finland. Naginata’s exercises in Ki-Ken-Tai-Icch are led by Mari Paasonen. All members of clubs in Finland, regardless of their sporting background, are welcome to practice. The sport also offers beginner courses in the fall and spring, which bring in new enthusiasts.
