White Wax wood kung fu staff Description

These White Wax Wood Kung Fu Staffs are the standard for Shaolin Kung Fu and Chinese Wushu. The White Wax Wood Kung Fu Staff are a lovely weapon and super versatile. They used to be common place in the UK about 10 – 15 years ago and then the supply dried up. It is now very difficult to buy these from anywhere, especially at a sensible price. We’ve worked hard to get these in and now ship them direct from the Shaolin area in China.


A super natural knobbly staff, that has a distinctive feel unique to this staff. They are made from White wax wood and offer a bit of flexibility, perfect for kung fu staff work. You can cut them to the length you need, but make sure you sand the cut edge to avoid splinters.  Used mainly by Shaolin Kung Fu and Chinese Wushu practitioners but also used by many Southern Kung Fu styles from where the staff naturally grow. They also are the standard for Spear shafts and are perfect for spear training (with the head of course).


They are a tough semi flexible weapon and will take some impact for partner work and drills. However, be mindful that it is wood and isn't indestructible. Wood can break so a real thumping could end up with a broken stick. Look after your staff and it will last you for years.


Average length is around 6.5ft / 77.5 inches / 197cm each varies as it is a natural product.


Advice from the shop on White Wax wood kung fu staff

“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.”

Doug Swift – Owner of Enso Martial Arts Shop

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.

There are many staff variations with what I practice with, bamboo 5ft, 8ft oak pole, and of course this white waxwood staff at 6ft is by the far the best for the 2 forms I need it for. Lau gar staff and the 8 diagram form. I would class this as the most easiest to handle, slick, light and strong, naturally finished, it is brilliant for strikes and blocks. Great price, It isnt just a staff, it is an excellent well made weapon.
