Martial Art Bo Staff Techniques : Bo Staff Helicopter Spin Technique
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, now
we’re going to be going over what’s called your helicopter spin. It’s going to look just
like this. Go all the way around and to the other side you’re going to switch hands. One
more time from this side – go all the way around, switch sides. Good. So all I’m doing
is doing my front spin. I’m just doing it above my head. I’m going through my fingers.
One, two, right above my head. So from the side angle it’s going to look this, okay?
So, as from here, I’m going to go up, put through my fingers, go above my head, spin
one time around, and that’s it. When I do it, it looks like I’m doing about three or
four spins, and I’m not, I’m just doing one spin. One, catch, bam, I’m going to switch
hands all the way to a pause. So from here, one, two, three. You could do your strikes,
switch sides. One, two, three. I’m going to do one more, come across, hold. Now from here
I’m going to grab between my two fingers, spin all the way above my head, all the way
to the other side, bam, catch. Or go all the way to a strike. So, once again, from here
all the way through the fingers, and all the way back around, just like that, right above
the head. So on this side, from putting it between the fingers go above the head, through
the fingers, helicopter spin and back down. So one, two, come back, one. Just practice
that. Good. So if you’ve got it, go into your front spins, go into your strikes, one, two,
helicopter spin and back. One, helicopter spin and back. That’s a good way to practice
it. Alright, and that is your helicopter spin.
