Team Canada

The 7th World Naginata Championship in Wiesbaden, Germany was an incredible turnout for Canadian naginata!

This year featured the Canadian women’s shiai team, bringing home a hard-fought, well earned silver medal! Canada also took 4th place in the Engi-kyogi division, and 5 (yes, 5) top 8 finishes across the Goodwill Shiai-Kyogi divisions. Great work everyone!
