OklahomasGreg, I may be wrong, but I think that you are mistaken about the bo staff. In my experience the Japanese staff forms are much simpler and more straight to the point (Yoshukai, Tang Soo Do..). They lock out all strikes and do it like a true hard style. The Chinese arts seem to be more flowery in movements, using more soft style motions and fluid technique (Wushu..) Just to reply to what you said earlier, but of course these are vast generalizations based on my observations of a few arts that use the staff. Thanks for your reply earlier.[/QUOTE]
Yes, that sounds right. I wasn't exactly sure which style was characterized which way.
