about France naginata

Naginata first appeared in France in 1973, making it the first country in Europe to practice and develop naginata. Under the direction of Simone CHARTON, the sport became increasingly popular, with French athletes regularly placing on the podium.

The activities on the booth are held by students from the Maisons-Alfort naginata club. The club is run by Cécile HAMOT sensei, renshi, and Alain GUILLAUME sensei, ex-coach of the French national team. Several of the athletes present will be members of the French naginata team.
