The Bo or staff approximately 6' in length has been used as a form of defence and combat from the earliest of times and all over the world.

The Bushi of medieval Japan knew it well and were adept in its use.

The staff and other similar wooden instruments, were used predominantly to train the Bushi in techniques which in actual combat would involve a steel blade, they developed a wooden substitute for almost every weapon, like a spear (Yari) or halberd (naginata).
