All tapered Bo Staff offers a lightweight version of their straight cousins. You loose a little bit of strength because of that, but gain in being lighter weight. Therefore the Red Oak Tapered Bo Staff is a great middle ground between the Black Graphite Bo Staff and the Straight Red Oak Bo Staff. Like two Bo staffs in one.
This ability to be light enough for forms work and tough enough for partner work makes it popular with the Karate, Taekwondo and Tang Soo Do practitioners, but it’s really a good bo staff for anyone who wants that versatility. Traditionally the taper creates a smaller striking point which would produce more damage on your opponent, but these days the weight is the major benefit.
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.
“The Red Oak Tapered Bo Staff offers a slighty lighter bo staff but it really comes down to perosnaly preference or whatever is used mostly in your club. If everyone has a Red Oak Tapered Bo Staff then buy this one”

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:
