    i don't get the bamboo flute stuff. what does that have to do with ninjing?

    also, can anybody comment on his bo staff skills? i'm seeing improvement, but i don't know enough about weapons to know if it's crap or not (obviously it's crap for aliveness, but i'm talking about just regular kata technique).

    i just hope he makes another snowboard ninja video, only this time have bystander reactions in it as well. i want to know what a recreational skier does when their slope gets ninjed right in front of their eyes.

    His bo isn't straight, if you look closely. Also, if you look even more closely, you'd see it's more of a stick than a bo because a bo has a slight taper at the ends.

    For comparison:

    Must resist






    fight it













    aaaaghg ****

    Isn't the taper so it can be twirled faster for flashy kata competitions but actually makes it less useful for hitting someone on the head with?

    Which is important, since he always has food with him.

    Kukishin doesn't really have much in common with Okinawan bo kata, even so, there is a distinct lack of focus there, which you expect in any weapon art.

    Or they might be lured by the layer of bacon grease that he naturally excretes at all times.

    In the first few exercises he is too static, and his movements come from the shoulders, and not from the center.

    In the freestyle towards the end, you see him spinning the staff around a lot. While there is nothing wrong with spinning a staff, the correct way to do so is with the use of the body, and stances, not just spinning the staff with your arms.

    Here is a video with an example of good staff skills. Admittedly, it is a different style then Jason Stork claims to practice, but it is a very good example of good staff work.
