What's a Bow Staff

Grandma Helen
sent me an email asking, "what's a bow-staff?"

As Sam will tell you, they started out as "bong johns," the polls, as he is demonstrating in the photo, that people used to carry pails of water and food.

Later, cool ninjas, like himself, learned to use these as weapons in martial arts.

And so he's spending the week learning "The 9 Lines of Attack" and other helpful skills, should we ever get attacked and we have a stick handy.
