My question is: Can one throw/utilize the hanbo like a ninja star, or is it more for pole vaulting?
Wing Chun vs. Ninjutsu! The battle for the worst reputation begins now! Winner will face Taekwondo!
The ninja is a versitile mammal. It can use is hanbo either projectially or pole-vaultily, depending on how many of its natural predators it needs to evade. Like many mollusks, ninja are unique as the only mammals that can excrete an inky black cloud to mask their escape.
Oops, I thought it said handjobjutsu. I'll be leaving now.
There is a technique called Bo Nage which involves throwing the Bo. However, eventhough this is being put on by the Bujinkan, it not a Ninja art. That Hanbojutsu comes from Kukishin Ryu ( Kukishinden is the the art is called in the Bujinkan, they don't have Kukishin lineage). Kukishin Ryu is a Samurai Battlefield system.

Kali grapples with the stick as well. In fact, the basic disarms of kali look a lot like oni kudaki and musha dori. And that is NOT the only difference. Kali sticks are generally shorter, you use two of them, training usually involves full contact swings of those sticks, and the names are more Spanish sounding.

wait. Throwing a bo?
why would you throw the bo?
wouldn't that be the last thing I'd want to do?
If the opponent got a sword, throwing your 3 foot staff pass the sword and knocking your opponent out is a good option. Actually on the Japanese battlefield there are more deaths dueto blunt trama to the head then from blades.

You have a Cane sword. you draw the sword throw the casing.
Throwing the weapon implies you have another weapon or you have a broken weapon.
PS. Can this thread be moved to the armory?
