PostPosted: Wed Apr 29, 2020 4:50 am    Post subject: Kata with JO Reply with quote

I am embarking on a bit of research project ad looking for input. I would like to learn about kata featuring the JO. The very inital info I have found is mostly geared toward kendo training, which is cool, but not what I am after.

Anyone out there have a JO kata or training specific toward the JO that they would be willing to share?

Thank you in advance!

In Shindokan, we train and teach a wide variety of Kobudo, and Jo is one of them. We don't teach Jo until 4th Kyu because students most have a better control of the Bo, which is first taught at 6th Kyu.

Jo is also the introduction at 2nd Kyu for the Rattan Sticks, which are about 28 inches long, whereas the Jo is about 4 feet long.

We've several Kata's for the Jo and the Rattan Sticks, aka, Escrima Sticks.

I'm sure the YouTube has many Jo training and kata for the Jo; might find what you're looking for.

Here are two good books on the Jo, and they also contains a few Jo Kata and drills...

Jo: The Japanese Short Staff by Don Zier and Tom Lang

AND...

Essential Jo: Comprehensive techniques and 2-person drills for the Japanese 4-foot staff by Dan Djurdjevic

Hope you find what you're looking for.
