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, 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 Stick people use them for Tai Chi forms and partner drills but also a lot for practicing Fa Jing. 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.
Made in the standard Bo Staff length of 6ft / 72 inches / 180cm. You can also buy the Bo Staff Case to store and carry it in.
"Many kung fu styles say that the staff should be a certain length relative to your height. This can easily be achieve by cutting the staff to the length you need it. Make sure you sand the cut end well to avoid any splinters."

Apologies for the blurriness, but the information is really useful.
We have a few different options for posting your items at Enso Martial Arts Shop. Prices vary depending on the overall order, weight, size etc. The checkout page will automatically workout the possible options for you.
We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Royal Mail 2nd Class signed - Pretty slow service but will get there eventually. We will try and post it the same day the order comes to us, but not always possible for us. More than likely we will post the next day or day after that. Only possible for small lightweight items, as heavy items are more expensive than UPS.
UPS Standard - Order before 12pm and we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next day. If you order after 12pm we can still pack it and have it ready but it is less likely to be collected the same day (still possible though, depends when the UPS man comes) and will arrive the day after that.
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:
