Bo Staff Kata
The movements done in this form as executed in a slower fashion in order to follow along. Please note sword movements are fluid and continuous - this demonstration video illustrates the individual movements, not the fluidity of the form. This is also a weapon form adapted from the original Dragon Rising From a Pit empty hand form or kata that demonstrates various locks and throws.
This kata was developed to showcase many of the details of Hapkido, along with various locks and control movements. Videos will be added in the coming months demonstrating the hidden techniques of this kata and how they are applied.
