Product Description

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.

    Cold Steel Octagonal Bo

    I bought one of their original Tantos back in 1986 (in California) and so have been a loyal Cold Steel customer now for thirty years.
    I must say they have not let me down yet, and the new bo - or Training Staff as they like to call it - is no exception.
    It is octagonal in cross-section and measures exactly 1.372m long (4'6"), tapering very slightly from 36mm down to 32mm - measured across the flat sides. It is smoothly finished with a light wood texture and feels weighty, with a slight spring to it. I can easily put all my 13 stone + on it - held to the floor at an angle - and it snaps back into shape instantly.
    Although it is short, the hefty nature of this bo means that it is great for working out and it will have you sweating bullets in no time.
    Although I have not really hauled off and smacked something with it yet, I am positive that it will do major damage to anything short of a fire hydrant. It is, to all intents and purposes, unbreakable. Trust me, I have one of their bats - made from the same weapons-grade polypropylene - and I know what that bad boy can do!
    Just in case you're interested in taking it hiking, a 32mm rubber ferrule fits perfectly on the slim end, but will need to be hot-glued if you want it to stay there.
    I can recommend this product without reservation.
    Have fun and try not to get arrested!
