Shelves: how-to
Written originally in 1976, it still is one of the very best in self-instruction of the 6-foot 1 1/4" "stick". Cold Steel sells a very affordable 4-foot wax wood stick (called a yon shaku-bo) that is a perfect selection, and is a completely legal item to carry hiking, traveling, in your car. The book is very easy to follow, comprehensive and a great source to get the fundamentals of kobu-do bo-jitsa katas.

Sanırım youtube'daki tüm bo staff tutorial'larını izledim.
Hareket çeşitlerine göre listeledim, evde ve açık havada yapabileceklerime ve ekollerine göre (dövüş sanatı ve jugglinge kayanlar) kategorilendirdim. Bir de yazılı bişelere bakmam lazımdı.

tutorial izleyerek herşeyin yapılabileceğini kanıtlayacağım inşallah.

A good primer on the fundamentals of the bo. Like other books by the same author, this book maximizes the limited medium of print instruction, and gives the viewer quite a bit of information in a small volume.

For beginners in martial arts, a good start. For advanced martial artists there is detail and explanation to create an entire Bo curriculum. Master Demura is the real deal.
