UPDATE

My instructor had me practice the hand movements without the bo in my hands, then I tried with them and I'm finally making progress. Yay. At home all day I just move my hands around practicing the movements, seems to work for me more.

that's great!

As I said previously, learning to work with a weapon is just like everything else, you have to work at it and get the reps up - but make sure that HOW you are practicing is using your very best effort and correct technique.

Start slowly and dont try for any speed until you have been doing it correctly for a few months at slow speed.
