Okay, sorry for coming in like this, since I'm new and everything. Well I'm just starting to get intrested in 'The Bo', and there are no places where I can learn this stuff so...I have chosen the internet. Unfortuantly the internet is not the best site, anyways, if anyone could give me a site or teach me themselves through like MSN messenger or yahoo, that would be great , anyways reply back, and ill do my best to reply back as well. Thanks

You cannot learn martial arts especially weapons work from the internet or a book. Nothing can replace a good instructor working with you in person.

Even though I've spent years learning and teaching bo techniques I am not prepared to even try to teach someone who isn't in front of me so I can see what they are doing and correct it instantly!

You need to find a good local dojo, join it and begin training.

Good luck.

Ditto to what everyone is telling you.

Your question should be - Does anyone know of any Dojo in my area that teaches weapons techniques ?
Maybe someone here knows your neighborhood and has some suggestions, otherwise check the yellow pages or internet for some in your area then go and watch them to see if you like what they are doing.

Smacking things with a stick will teach you how to smack things with a stick quicker and maybe a little better but that is about as far as you can go on your own.
