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.

Shipping your Rattan Bo Staff

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:
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: 
  • Europe: 2-3 working days
  • USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand: 3-4 working days
  • All other destinations: 4-7 working days.
