Bo of 2X4

Next time you're practicing a Bo kata, put the bo down and practice the same Kata without the bo.
Next try some empty hand applications using the same hand movements and positions as though you were holding the bo.
Try these things and you're sure to have an interesting training experience and learn something in the process.
I went tonight to help move mats to the new Dojo. It's a huge space and I can hardly way to get going with classes. When complete, we will have a 14' drop ceiling--plenty of room to do Bo, about 1600 SQ FT matted and another 900-1000 unmatted with possibilities for a future wood floor and heavy bags, etc.
