What I Like About Learning Naginata

One of the first things I liked about learning Naginata is the feel of it in my hands -- I'm a very tactile person. Moving the naginata[1] around feels natural and intuitive to me in a way that almost no other sports do. Also every time I practice I learn something. And like most exercise, Naginata makes me focus on how my body works and makes me feel stronger.


[1] From now on, I'm going to refer to the martial art as 'Naginata' and the weapon as 'naginata'.

  1. I know what you mean. Several of the martial arts I've taken have felt right like that where most other sports have not. Hated Judo though. Loved Iaido.
