Staffs are the perfect introductory weapon for all ages. Traditionally used in Japanese Martial Arts and used used for striking, blocking and sweeping opponents. Manufactured from ultra light graphite and thin tapered design for high speed during performances and demonstrations. The SMAI Staff is crafted from burnt rattan oak with a straight design.
You should choose a staff that is close to your own height, unless you are training a specific style. The thinner or lighter a staff, the easier it will be to handle, and the faster it will maneuver through air. Generally, tapered staffs are used for demos. Straight staffs are used for training, as they are more durable during contact training.
