Last we I started training close range staff techniques. Day one I was thrown to the ground and reinjured my back. I didn't get hit with the staff but the techniques were brutal, even at a slow pace. I worked on the scenario of someone grabbing rhe staff in an effort to stop me from swinging it or to take it away. Next time I will reduce the resistance applied as the more I add the more damaging the techniques are. I wish I could create a long stick self defense class for staff. But everything that makes the staff works comes from the regular class training.
