  • Top quality
    This staff is very durable. It does not get dented and nicked as much when mistakes are made. The colors really pop out when using the staff and I find it really easy to see in my peripheral vision.
  • AWESOME
    This bo staff is awesome. It had bean and always will be my favorite bo staff forever. It is very light weight and packs a punch. If you are looking for a bo staff that is good for demo than this is for you. If you use this for regular training it can still work.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT BO STAFF

Are you one of the thousands of people in the US and throughout the world who trains in using the rokushakubo, or bo staff? It’s a popular weapon for karate practitioners, and for good reason. Training with a bo staff  is great conditioning for the upper body, and there are an almost  infinite number of bo techniques and tricks that beginning and skilled  practitioners can learn.
Or maybe you don’t train with a bo staff but  you want to learn. Stop thinking and go for it! There’s no better time  to start learning a new martial art form than the present. Here are some  tips to start your bo staff journey off right:

Choosing a Bo Staff
There  are four big factors that you should consider when picking a bo staff.  That sounds more daunting than it is – as you’ll see, they all tie in  pretty closely to each other. They are: Length, Weight/Material,  Appearance and your Intended Use.
Length: As sport karate competitor and Team Paul Mitchell member Jackson Rudolph explains in this video,  the correct length for your bo staff depends on your height. As a  general rule of thumb, when stood upright on the ground, your bo should  be about the same height as you. For creative competitions, you may want  it a little bit shorter.
 
Weight/Material:
Heavier bo staffs are great for traditional or strength training. These tend to be made of hardwood,  like oak, and were originally designed for use in combat. Only use bo  staffs like these with the supervision of your martial arts instructor.  Then there are lightweight bo, made of materials like lotus white wood, bamboo, or even graphite.

Appearance: Most people who train with bo staffs use them in competitions.  Therefore, in addition to the length, you might also want to consider  the look of the staff. Many competition bo staffs have eye-catching  designs that draw attention to the performance. The Jackson Rudolph Signature Bo Staff and Jackson Rudolph Professional Bo Staff are the some kind of staff Rudolph uses in competition. Always be sure to use a bo staff caseto securely carry your bo.

Use: Use is determined by a combination of the other factors. If you want a  bo for sport competition, you will want a light, shorter bo that is easy  to manipulate for tricks. For traditional competition and training a  longer bo with heavier material is recommended.

For Sparring: One important use we haven’t covered yet is live sparring. If you are  going to use your bo for partner training with full-speed movements and  striking, you should not use a wood or graphite bo. Instead, use a padded bo like the ActionFlex or foam bo staff.

As  we’ve said, there’s no time like the present to start learning! Now  that you know the right bo, here are some tips and techniques to start  working on.
Basic Striking
Basic Bo Release
Palm Spin
 
Instructors: These  would be great tricks to teach in your weapons classes. If your  students want to practice after-hours, they’ll be able to use these  videos for reference. If you have tips and techniques you want to share,  send them to socialmedia@centurymartialarts.com.
