In Wushu, we often refer to the STAFF as the father of all weapons. Meaning that staff basics lay the foundation for learning all other weapon basics (i.e. sword, chain etc). Learning staff strongly builds up a student's dexterity as the coordination between both feet and both hands are vital in executing the various staff techniques. Add on basic techniques from our Basic Wushu class together with these staff techniques, and we now have a challenging but comprehensive pursuit that is vitally important for beginners in starting their first steps to learn the various weapons in contemporary Wushu.
