Foam Jo Staff Description

The foam Jo staff are a great option if you are a looking to practice some sparring / fighting with Jo staffs. You can train quite happily without the worry and stress of serious pain, which you would get if training in a similar way with wooden Jo staffs.  Now they aren't completely pain free, if you went full pelt and get hit with this you are going to know about it, however the potential injury compared to a wooden Jo Staff is massively reduced. This means you can really ramp up the intensity of training and put in way more power into your strikes than you could before.


This Foam Jo Staff is constructed from a plastic core which runs the length of the jo staff. It is very durable and some flexibility in it. It is covered with a foam padded cover which helps protect you and soften blows. These Foam Jo staffs will take a battering and you can really go to town on them. However, if you smash them against walls or floors the foam padding will degrade quickly. Also if you go out of your way to break the plastic core you will succeed eventually. So look after you Foam Jo Staff, treat it well, use it only for purpose (martial arts training) and you'll have a Jo staff that will last you a long time.


Made to the standard length of a Jo Staff, 50 inches, but it is a lot thicker than a wooden jo staff as you'd expect with all the expect padding. They fit a Jo Staff Case from us too, which will help keep it safe and prolong it's life.


Advice from the shop on Foam Jo Staff

"You cannot complain to us if you are whacked full pelt and it hurts a little bit. It is not made from air and will shake your brain a little bit. Saying that it will be a massive improvement compared to being hit with a wooden stick."

Doug Swift - Owner of Enso Martial Arts Shop

We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Courier Tracked - Order before 1pm, we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next working day, this is not a weekend service. It is fully tracked and we will send you the tracking number when we process your order.
Hermes - In our experience an extremely slow service, we cannot guarantee it will arrive. It isn't an option on the website for good reason, so if you want this pitiful service and your parcel thrown into a random hedge near your house, if you're lucky, just to save about £2 then simply call us on 0117 942 5832 and we can process your order over the phone. 
UPS Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows:
