Bo

Bo Yamane Ryu Kobudo IMG 2691

The bō is a six-foot long staff, sometimes tapered at one or both ends.  The bo is the earliest of all Okinawan weapons (and effectively one of the earliest of all weapons in the form of a basic staff), and was the other weapon used by Okinawan law enforcement officals. The Bo is the major weapon of the Yamane Ryu system with seven Katas and many basic exercises. It is also one of the most effective weapons with its reach and ability to strike and thrust from both ends.
