CHOOSING THE RIGHT BO STAFF
Are you one of the thousands of people in the world who train with a Rokushakubo or Bo staff? It is a common weapon for karate learners - and for good reason. Training with a bo staff is good for upper body conditioning. Students can learn an almost infinite number of techniques or tricks. If you too would like to train with a Bo staff, there is no better time than now to start learning a new martial art! Now we'll give you a few tips to get you started on your Bo staff journey.
Choosing a Bo Staff
There are four big factors you should consider when choosing a bo staff. This sounds harder than it is - you'll see that in a moment, because it's all very closely connected. The factors are: Length, weight/material, appearance and how you want to use the stick.
Length: Jackson Rudolph, Team Paul Mitchell member and sport karate competitor, explains that the right bo staff length depends on your size. As a general rule, if you are standing up straight, your bo should be about the same height as you. For creative competitions you want the bo to be a little Shorter.
Weight/Material: Heavy bo sticks are great for traditional or strength training. These are usually made of hardwood, like oak, and are designed for use in combat. Only use these sticks with the instruction of your martial arts teacher. In addition, there are lightweight bo's, which are usually made of white lotus wood, bamboo or even Graphite.
Appearance: Many people who train with bo staffs also use them in competitions. In addition to length, you also look at the appearance of your bo staff. Many competition bo staffs have a design that catches the eye.
The Jackson Rudolph Signature Bo Staff and Jackson Rudolph Professional Bo are staffs that Rudolph uses in his competitions. Always use a Bo Staff case to ensure you carry your Bo safely.
Usage: Use is determined by a combination of other factors. If you want a bo for sports competitions, then you need a light and shorter bo that is easy to handle. For training and traditional competitions, it is recommended to use a heavier and longer stick.
For Sparring: Live sparring is especially important. If you use your bo for partner training with full movements and punches, then you should not use a wooden or graphite bo. Instead, use a padded bo such as the ActionFlex or foam bo.
As we’ve said, there’s no time like the present to start learning! Now that you know which bo is right for you, here are some tips and techniques to get you started.
