Bo Staff


The Bo staff was the simplest common weapon in Rokugan. It was a wooden staff of roughly five to six feet in length, and was most commonly carried by travelers and monks. The bo had no penetrating power when it came to armor, but a master with the staff was not to be taken lightly whether you wear armor or not. It was notably more difficult to hit a trained bo user. [1] The bo's primary advantage was it length, as it was longer than the average katana. Athletic individuals could use the bo as leverage to propel themselves into aerial maneuvers. [2]
