Bo

Summary

The Bo staff was one of the five major weapons of style that early Okinawan developers systemized. This long staff is usually between 1.8m (5.9ft) and 2m (6ft), and is typically made of hard woods such as oak. During feudal Japan bamboo and pine would also have often been used.

HISTORY

The Bo was used in the early martial arts of Japanese, called Bugei. Its main users were the Samurai priests. Users were at an advantage with this weapon, especially due to its six-foot length. Therefore, it was a strong weapon against the opponents, and also it provided a safe zone to be in for the user.

PRESENT DAY

Using the Bo improves physical strength of the body. Currently, it is most widely found in competitions and Kata performances.
