Bo

The is a six-foot long staff. It was perhaps developed from a farming tool called a tenbin: a stick placed across the shoulders, used to lift buckets and sacks that hung off each end. The Bō, along with shorter variations such as the Jō and hanbo could also have been developed from walking sticks used by travelers, especially monks.

UsageEdit

The Bō was firstly used as the handle to a rake or a shovel. Most techniques the Bō adopted include striking movements. Mostly the Bō was used for non-lethal attacks, providing quick take downs.

The Shoninki shinobi manual mentions using a length of bamboo to lean against the wall a shinobi is descending from and sliding down to break the fall. Another way to do it is by using a stick to jump down by letting the stick hit the ground first for a lighter landing.
