Tilak Punn
The Bo

The bo is an excellent weapon but one of the more impractical ones because of its size. It is a piece of hard wood about six feet in length, and therefore cannot be easily concealed or carried in a car or on your person. Still, it has remained a favorite karate weapon for years because of its versatility and beauty when used in the hands of a master.

Because of its length, the bo is often used to block nunchaku, or knives or other weapons, and techniques of the bo are used today by most military forces when they teach rifle or punja stick fighting. The original bo was used for a walking stick and for a prod for cattle or goats but became a weapon in the hands of the skilled martial artist.
