I've seen it often, but like the long pole-like wooden thing. What's it called?

In Japanese/Okinawan weapon arts, it is called a Bo.

the 6ft "wooden pole thing" is a bo

the shorter 3-4ft version is a jo

and there is an even shorter one called a hanbo which is like a longer escrima/arnis/kail stick.

Which one do you mean?

I'd rather call it the rokushubo/sixfootstaff or bo for short.

And the 8-to-9-ft one used in Europe was referred to variously as a "short staff" (to distinguish it from the "long staff", which was as long as a pike) or "quarterstaff" (which referred to the way it was primarily used--holding it at one end--a quarter--and making total use of its reach).
