I'm at a loss as to call this a bo or a staff on here. Chances are if I call it a bo, nobody will know what I'm talking about. I'll have to be permanently intoxicated before I refer to my weapon as a bo staff (which is staff staff for those who don't know).
I came up with a new routine that greatly focuses on basic strikes and a simple kata. It's really heavy on shoulder work, so that may do me some good. Once I'm done with weight training, I'll may move shoulder work to cardio days, so I can really practice.
Hopefully I'll find someone to spar with in the future.
