Many of our fans and customers share our love for the Martial Arts, and they have been asking us to produce longer training tools for many years; and now, thanks to recent pioneering innovations in the world of high-strength polymer production we are proud to offer our first synthetic training staff! Our company President Lynn C Thompson has studied and trained with numerous pole arms, spears and staves (most recently training Krabi Krabong Staff with Guro Ron Balicki) and he found that a hard wearing octagonal "Okinawan style" Japanese Staff was an excellent training tool for all of these disciplines and more. Therefore, the first of our long training tools features a traditional octagonal cross section for superior grip and comfort. Perfect for pell work and for conditioning training, this high-impact staff will be the perfect addition to any Martial Artists training regime.

"Surprisingly heavier than my White Oak Bo staff, so one has to be careful to not hit in practice with full force and one should pull one's strikes on contact or train in a non contact training style. Even with practice armour protection these are heavy enough that they could do real damage if one doesn't use control or respect for one's training partners: One must remember that as staff, even a training staff, is identical in weight to the staff as a weapon, as opposed to a training sword which simulates a weapon. Same could be said with any training pole arm of similar weight to a real weapon. Oh, as a solo training staff I really like it, it feels good in hand, is surprisingly stiff and rigid and near indestructible. One could even use it as a hiking staff." - Jean (5/5)
"It's just as described, and appears indestructible, yet easy to wield." - Paal (5/5)
