Hi, my name is Caleb Labarda. I’m here with
Expert Village and today I’m going to be going over beginning bo staff. Alright. So now the
next move we are going to be going over is called around the neck. This is a pretty cool,
fancy move. Just take your bo, make sure you’re holding it properly, right hand up, left hand
down. You’re going to actually flip it around, right hand down. You’re going to throw it
around the neck and catch. You’re going to do it straight up, you go behind the back,
toss it, down. So there’s two different ways to go around your neck. So I’m going to show
you. So the first way, this is the most easiest, take your hand, hold it a little bit away
from the middle. So about hand length and a little bit more away from the middle. About
two hand lengths away from the middle. Alright? So now, you’re going to take it with your
right hand, go to the opposite side of your body. Put it on your neck, so now you’ve got
it all the way up and just let it roll over. Your other hand is going to come across and
grab the bo just like this. Come across just like that. And you can do it back, one, two
and grab. And when you do it, instead of bending over, start sitting up more and more. See
down? So then, as you do it, start doing it higher and higher instead of bending over.
So from here I go over, there you go, back and I start sitting up. And then soon, you’re
going to start swinging it to where you don’t have to bend over anymore when it goes fast.
Now the other way you can do it, is after a spin, you can stop just like you’re holding
a pencil. You want to hold it like this and you’re just going to toss it around your neck.
You have to keep it going. So from above your head, all the way around your neck. And that’s
going to be around your neck. So you can do your chops, go above your head, all the way
around the neck to a pause or into another strike. Alright? And that’s how you’re going
to be doing around the neck.
