Kukishin Ryu Naginata

 
Naginata is said to have been the weapon of primary importance in Kukishin Ryu when Kukishinryu was called Shinden Fujiwara Musouryu before it was reorganized by Yakushimaru Ryujin, as we can surmise it from the fact that Bojutsu owes its origin to Naginata. 1
Techniques handed down today includes unique ones like Uragiri and Gyakugiri. There are a variety of techniques in which we hook an adversary by the wrist or neck by using the curvature at the end of Naginata and get him down. This is the exquisiteness of all-around martial arts.
We use a Naginata of 225 cm in length; the double-edged spearhead is 21 cm long;  Sendanmaki 2 is looped by nine iron wires.

[ Notes ]
1 The origins of Naginata dates back to November, 751A.D., when Fujiwara Uona, a great-grandson of Fujiwara Kamatari, was appointed ministerial officer and made a Nagamaki by mimicking Chinese sword Bisento. Uona also is said to have devised the use of it and taught the techniques to Sakanoueno Tamuramaro, who was conferred the title Seii Tai Shogun(the barbarian subduing generalissimo). Tamuramaro put up a remarkable fight against enemies at Suzuka Kiyomigaseki with the weapon.
