In the early morning, when fog is as white as snow, you may see this figure walking along the shore.
Small fish samurai sketch based on the amazing frontal crest from the collection of Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller. Saw this tweet went "Oh my god, it was made for me" and ran with it.

Anna Sawai training with Naginata for Shogun (2024). 😎
Naginata is a weapon used by Onna Musha (Female Warrior) who are non combatants that defends the castle and household. They act as the last line of defense to protect the lord, elderly and children in the event the enemy made it pass through the front line.

"Sana studied Hokushin Ittō ryū at a young age along with her siblings. She had a great interest in bujutsu as she learned many things, such as kenjutsu. It is recorded that Sana was exceptionally skilled in using the kodachi (short sword), that she received menkyo kaiden (mastery level) in kodachijutsu at the age of fourteen. Her older sister taught her naginatajutsu, which was quite renowned due to Sadakichi’s efforts in developing it.
When Sana was 19, she went to Uwajima Domain as a kenjutsu instructor for the Date family to train their daughter named Masako (政子姫). During her time there, she had a sparring match with the soon-to-be 9th domain head, Date Mune’e (age 27), and was able to win against him. "

KOJO MIYAGINO: The Filial Using a Naginata (mid 1800s). Woodblock print, oban tate-e. 36.90cm x 25.40cm. British Museum.
What comes to mind when you hear the word samurai? Men wielding katanas? Ironclad Japanese warriors about to strike a blow? Or perhaps a robed samurai on the verge of self-sacrifice.
How about a kimono-wrapped lady on the verge of kicking ass?
While most women in feudal Japan were expected to adhere to traditional roles, samurai as a rising warrior class (actually called “bushi” before the Kamakura Period) included both men and women. However, "samurai" was a term reserved for men. Women "samurai" were deemed onna-musha (a female warrior on the offensive) or onna bugeisha, a warrior woman on the defensive.
Onna musha were rarer than their onna bugeisha counterparts, who were nevertheless formidable women. Onna bugeisha were trained in martial arts to defend their homes against the frequent ransacking that took place during the Warring States Period in feudal Japan. Their weapon of choice was the naginata, a curved sword mounted on a pole, first used by warrior monks in 750 A.D.

The sword of the day is the naginata.
Tumblr media
The Naginata is a Japanese polearm similar to the Chinese guandao or European glaive-guisarme; essentially, swords on sticks. Requiring more specialized training than a simple pike, the naginata was a primary weapon of pre-Sengoku samurai, and still made appearances on the battlefield after that period. During the Edo period, women from samurai courts were often trained in the weapon, using the smaller ko-naginata. In fact, the naginata is still practiced today, and most modern practitioners of naginata-jutsu are women.
Thank you to @thegenderfluidgokenin for helping me write this one! If anyone reading happens to know about weapons, especially African or Chinese weapons, please let me know!
