  • Naginata seminar april 8-9

    Greetings everyone,

    On behalf of the Southern California Naginata
    Federation, the Florida Naginata Dojo announces and
    extends a cordial invitation to the Annual Spring
    Naginata Seminar that will be held in Tallahassee, FL,
    April 8-9, 2006.

    The seminar will introduce beginning students to the
    beautiful art of Atarashii Naginata under the
    expertise of the premier instruction of Helen Nakano
    Sensei (Kyoshi) and Jean Yien Sensei (Godan).

    For returning students, an opportunity to refresh
    and polish skills as well as advance to the next level
    in your personal training will be provided.

    We will cover the basics (kamae, ashi-sabaki, basic
    strikes and blocks) and as proficiency increases
    training will progress to uchikaeshi, Shikake-Oji, and
    bogu practice.

    Hotel Accommodations: PLEASE NOTE!
    I was not able to secure a reasonable contract for
    accommodations this year; however, in searching the
    internet, the La Quinta South is offering an internet
    special of $87.00 (plus taxes) per night for single
    rooms and $81.00 (plus taxes) per night for double
    rooms. This is the hotel that I have booked for
    Nakano Sensei and Yien Sensei. If you anticipate
    coming to the seminar, I encourage you to make your
    reservations soon as there is no indication of how
    long these rates will be available. Reservations can
    be cancelled up to 6PM the day of arrival.

    Driving directions:
    I-10 Westbound: exit 209A-left on Highway 319 –right
    on Apalachee Parkway (US 27). La Quinta on the right.

    I-10 Eastbound: exit 199 - right on Monroe Street-left
    on Apalachee Parkway (in front of the Capitol), pass
    the Governor’s Square Mall and Target (both on your

    I look forward to seeing you in April! The FL
