Welcome to my video on shaolin staff basics. Today I'll be demonstrating some of the fundamental techniques in order to help you understand how to use your staff a little better. We'll start with overhead swings. To begin with, we'll start from our forwards stance. And this is a great way to train your stance and your weapon all at the same time. From here, you're going to bring your staff over your shoulder. Place your left hand on top of your right. You're going to begin by swinging the staff out to the side, bringing it behind you. As you bring it behind you, you want to tilt so that the staff should continue to flow past you, bringing it around so that it tucks underneath the arm, pivoting into your forwards stance, and then thrusting the palm out. One more time, one, two, three, four, five. And then from, here, you just want to take the staff out, bring it around, and swing it like a baseball stick. And then it just starts over again. So, now I'll demonstrate full speed. The next basic technique is what we call forward figure 8. From here, you're going to have your right hand firmly on the stick. Left hand is going to grasp with two fingers, and you use your thumb to guide it. As you bring your stick forward, bring it from side to side. You want the stick to travel as close to your body as possible. To reverse figure 8, for this one, you're going to have your right hand on the stick, and then place your left hand underneath. You're going to start by swinging behind you, and then bringing it up. Now, it's really important to keep your elbows high. Because the ceiling here isn't that high, I'm going to go a little bit lower. You want to use your body with the stick. Now we're going to take a look at the uppercut and the chop. Again, we're going to bring the stick over the head, on to the shoulders. We're going to do a change step, and release the staff at a 45 degree angle. Let it rest on your left shoulder. Bring it down, letting it snap underneath your arm. You can visualize coming up underneath somebody's head, and then striking back down on the back of their head. Again, up, and then, down. Full speed. And you'll practice these techniques with a lot of repetition, so you can get really good at them.

Your stick is too thin too light. It can't even beat a wild dog, let alone humans. Get a thick and heavy one then the blows and spins won't be that easy anymore.

RadicalSc33 (3 years ago)
Is it possible to do that move where you throw the staff on the ground, then it jumps back up and you grab it to hit someone
RadicalSc33 (2 years ago)
@koji Thanks
lain (2 years ago)
RadicalSc33 yeah, it requires a lot of experience tho, because you may hurt yourself when you hit the staff down, since it can turn when bouncing off the floor, and hit your nuts. Not a very pleasant thing.
Jacob Agasyev (3 years ago)
That's cool to know those techniques. Plus, when I know how person moving his stick, I can stop it with my Shinai

This moves will help me practice at home thank you
what tree is the staff made from? What diameter and length it should be? Anyone help!!
Thanks, not for violence just body fitness
Dr. Zoidberg (3 years ago)
+Dr-Ng'umbi Nickson Hassanally White wax wood is the preferred wood to make staffs like this. I wouldn't worry too much about the diameter (they usually work that in with the length) but as for length, try to get it as close to your own height as you can. A lot of places will recommend a 6 foot staff for adults, just as a general rule. Also, you'll want to decide between a straight staff, & one that's tapered at the ends. Tapered staffs are faster (because of the weight/friction reduction), but can be more dangerous when sparring, especially with a jab. A straight staff (like you see here) will train your strength more, but will ultimately be slower.
Epidemic Productions (4 years ago)
really howcast.... youre better than these crappy sound effects(which you dont need)
Dr. Zoidberg (3 years ago)
+Benjamin Uluiva Were I to bet on it, those aren't sound effects. Staffs really do make sound like that when you swing them fast enough (it's just like a propeller, the air can't get out of the way fast enough -- what you hear is the friction). Plus, the sound was low-fi and inconsistent, enough that I imagine it's being picked up from his lapel mic.

Im 12 and im so close to mastering some of them!The thing is= -i could be crazy and use these to injure people accidentally -im not an adult so i cant really do these as many measurements must be met like how long the stick is. -its kinda hard to understand what he's saying and if i could be there to see it it may be easier.

If this man really wanted to teach people via video; it would be far more helpful to show more than one angle. Unfortunately he only demonstrates his technique from one angle, hardly enough to facilitate learning this weapon. 
merlinthegray (4 years ago)
Look at his hips and feet and you can see what you need. Most of the hidden arm angles can be deduced easily. I thought it was rather effective, but you are definitely right it would benefit from multiple angles.
