Workshop Details

Join Charles Burns for an exploration of movement using the Shintaido long staff (quarterstaff).

We will focus on learning to move with your staff using simple sequences, partner work and soft movement. The aim is to make the staff feel like a natural extension of our bodies.

Participants will leave with a coherent program for further self study and an insight into the wonderful world of Shintaido Bo movement.

    What is Shintaido?

    While Shintaido is grounded in traditional Japanese martial arts, it does not aim to defeat or overpower an opponent, and its practice is entirely non-competitive.
