About the Bo Staff:

The Bo Staff is an Okinawan martial arts weapon.  It was initally used as a farming tool to help carry  baskets of harvested crops or buckets of water and fish.  In 1609, there was a new weapons ban that left the Okinawans defenseless against the Samurai.  In an attempt to protect themselves the people of Okinawa looked  to simple farming implements as new methods of defense.
