Rattan Bo Staff Description
The rattan Bo staff is so different from the standard Japanese Bo staffs in that it has great flexibility. This makes it strong and durable, it can take a knock but also light and moveable. Many people call them Bamboo Staffs, please please don't train with bamboo, it splinters terribly. Rattan is the material you want and works much better for Martial Arts.
Used in many styles but mainly Chinese Kung Fu and Tai Chi. In Tai Chi people use them for forms and partner drills but also a lot for practicing Fa Jin. The Kung Fu practitioners will use these for form work as well as partner drills and sparring, but will love the flexibility from fast striking movements and speed you can get from it being so lightweight. Also it works as a perfect lightweight version of a Bo staff, so if you don't want to train with the weight of a red oak Bo staff the Rattan Bo staff is a perfect alternative.
Made in the standard Bo Staff length of 6ft / 72 inches / 183cm. You can also buy the Bo Staff Case to store and carry it in.
