The Hanbo is an extremely practical and versatile martial arts weapon. This three foot long staff is the perfect size to be used as a self defense weapon in today'ss urban environment. Any medium sized, stick like object, such as a cane, umbrella, or golf club, can be used as a hanbo, making it an unobtrusive as well as a practical weapon. John Goss Sensei applies his extensive experience with Aiki arts to teaching a dynamic and highly effective method of using the hanbo. The principles of Aiki add a flexibility to the use of the hanbo, which makes it much more effective as a self defense weapon. Clear and detailed step by step explanations show how to perform the techniques and how to apply the principles of Aiki. Students of the Aiki arts will enhance their training by learning to use a hanbo to perform familiar techniques in new ways. Practitioners of other kobudo arts will find that the principles of Aiki add a new dimension of effectiveness and excitement to their hanbo training. This second edition is completely revised and expanded, with additional techniques and street scenarios. The all new photographs, more detailed explanations, and revised format make it easier for martial artists to learn to use this dynamic and practical weapon. John C. Goss Jr. has been a martial arts practitioner for over 35 years. He holds the rank of Rokudan (6th degree black belt) and Shihan in Korindo Aikido, and holds a Shidoin teaching license from the Aikikai Foundation. After extensive training, in 1998 he received authorization by Katsuyuki Kondo to conduct classes in mainline Daito ryu Aikijujutsu. Goss is currently the Chief Instructor of Aiki Martial Arts Institute in Baltimore, Maryland. Goss Sensei was introduced to Hanbo jutsu in 1968, through Okinawan Karate'ss Kobu jutsu. In 1974 he was introduced to a different system of Hanbo with the weapons work of Korindo Aikido. Mr. Goss is known for his unique style of Hanbowaza, which blends the fluidity and connective energy of Aikido with the dynamics of Okinawan Karate'ss Kobu jutsu.
