Kung Fu Long Staff for All
July 27 @ 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM CDT
Whether you are new to weapons training or are very familiar with the long staff, this workshop has something for everyone! Throughout the workshop, we will explore a series of drills to get at the heart of several questions: How does the long staff “like” or “want” to move? What are the key ways to guide the long staff where we want it to go? We will also do some partner work and learn a form from the kung fu tradition.
Bring: Please bring your own long staff, if possible. If you are not used to handling a long staff, it is strongly recommended that you wear thin, flexible gloves to protect your hands from blisters. Band-aids, gauze, and athletic tape will be available for participant use.
Wear: Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes for physical movement (uniform/gi is optional).
