Martial Art Bo Staff Techniques : Basic Bo Staff Strikes
Hi, my name is Caleb Labarda. I’m here with
Expert Village, and today I’m going to be going over beginning bo staff. Alright, so
now that we know how to hold the bo, let’s go ahead and go over our basic strikes. So
one of our strikes is going to be, make sure you hold it up, it’s going to be real simple.
You’re going to go in your left armpit if you’re right-handed. Left one, two strike,
three, and then come back around. One, two, three. As I do it, you’re going to go all
the way in your armpit. Try to hold the bo so it’s level. One, these are all head shots,
two, come across, head shot, three, right underneath the chin, string it back over.
So, one, two, three, and as you do it just practice it one, two, three, one, two, three.
Start getting a little faster and faster with it so it’ll look like…Okay? These are going
to be your basic strikes, all head level. One, two, three, just as if you were pointing
a gun or you were going to shoot your bo straight across. So one, and cross, two, come back
up three. One, two, three. These are going to be your basic chops, then you can start
switching up. You can do switches like that, and then come across. But those three right
there are going to be your most basic chops for your beginning bo, and then you’re going
to learn as we go through the series how to put more of them together.
