Hapkido Bo Staff Martial Arts Weapon : Using the Bo Staff to Strike to the Stomach

On behalf of Expert Village, my name is Master
Dave Herbert with the World Martial Art Center in New York City. I’ll be demonstrating some
hapkido staff techniques. Opponent is thrusting, I side step, strike his lower body, cover
his wrist and lock him down onto his stomach. The staff acts like a pin also. Then I can
disarm the blade. Okay, I will show you this again very slowly. Opponent is attacking,
I side step off the line of attack, I strike his lower body. Take extension, grab the wrist.
Keeping the staff close to his body, I pin, lock his elbow. As I twist the wrist up, I
walk forward bringing his balance forward so he has to fall to his stomach. The staff
acts as a pin. Put pressure on him and I can disarm the blade easily.
