Here are some important tips to get started with your Bo Stab training.
Choose your individual Bo rod
There are four major factors to keep in mind when choosing a Bo Wand. The factors are: length, weight / material, appearance and how you want to use the wand.
Length: As a general rule, if you are standing straight, your Bo bar should be about the same height as you. For creative competitions, you should have the Bo a little shorter.
Material/Weight: Heavy Bo bars are great for traditional or strength training. These are mostly hardwood, like oak, and are designed for use in combat. Use these bars only with instructions from your martial arts teacher. Then there are still light Bo rods, these are usually made of white lotus wood, bamboo or even graphite.
Appearance: Many people who train with Bo rods also use them in competitions. In addition to the length you pay attention to the appearance of your Bo rod. Many competition Bo sticks have a design that attracts attention. The Jackson Rudolph Signature Bo Staff and the Jackson Rudolph Professional Bo Staff are rods that Jackson Rudolph uses in his competitions. Always use a Bo Stab shell so you can transport your Bo safely.
Use: The use is determined by a combination of other factors. Do you want a Bo rod for sports competitions, then you want to have a light and shorter Bo rod that is easy to handle. For training and traditional competitions, it is advisable to use a heavier and longer rod.
For sparring: A very important thing is the live sparring. If you are using your Bo Staff for full training and strikes for partner training, then you should not use a wooden or graphite bo rod. Instead, use a padded bo bar like the ActionFlex or Fo Bo.
