Learning to yield a staff the height and thickness of a broomstick. This program includes both genders and is conducted outdoors. It begins with a short warm-up particularly concentrating on the spine and shoulders followed by the arms and wrists. Participants are taught to swing the stick (Staff) around with out hitting themselves. Skills training on how to strike and block is undertaken individually and with partners. Orchestrated combat sequences (Kata) are performed and controlled free play is allowed with advanced experienced warriors. It closes with simple yoga standing postures with a stick in hand. This program has been designed from techniques drawn from Aikikai Aikido, Okinawa Bodo and Kaliri Payatt.
