The Staff

The staff is called by many names, the baton, the jo, the night stick, the bat, but all refer to a stick of wood that is approximately two to three feet in length. It is a very common weapon of defense and is carried by most of the police in the world because of its effectiveness.

It can be used to strike, to block, to jab, to hold, and to throw an opponent and is easily made and maintained. With a little practice you will be able to twirl the stick in your hands and around your body and make yourself into a formidable weapon of defense.

Because the staff is hard, and because most of the strikes go to soft and vulnerable areas of the body, I recommend that you practice most of your techniques with a rubber stick or hollow tube until you have mastered your basics and acquired enough control for safety.
