Rokushaku bōjutsu

六尺棒術
ROKUSHAKU BŌ JUTSU

Bojutsu - Keiko Sabaki kata - 03 - Sashi-ai(E)The bōjutsu of Kukishin Ryū is best described as a method used to defeat/trick wielders of other weapons. It has special striking techniques that allow the Bō to feign quickly and re-direct its aim; a special method of “twirling” (Bofurigata) designed to confuse opponents and keep them at bay; and thrusting techniques that correlate with throwing the staff as a projectile (nagebō). Aspects of the Bōjutsu are gleaned from two other weapons within the school: naginata and the spear (from Wikipedia).


(Video clip from Rokushaku Bōjutsu – Basics by Mats Hjelm)

In the video above I also show some training drills and ideas how to use the Rokushakubō with Gyokkō-ryu Sanshin no Kata. The staff is used different than Okinawa (Karate) styles. We try to use the whole length of the weapon and strike from distance. Or we go in close to make it difficult for the opponent to use his weapon and use Jūtaijutsu. Hatsumi Sōke once said that to be good with sticks you also need to be good in Jūtaijutsu (Jūjutsu), this is very true when you come in close with the opponent and can not wield the weapon freely.
