Re: Woman's Staff vs. Multiple Attack

Various Methods

Notice that this "staff method" incorporates the entire weapon. The front of the staff is used like a spear and is sometimes akin to nagigata. It also uses the both ends of the staff, similar to quarterstaff.

More importantly, this staff method is close in. It is use vertically moreso than traditionally horizontal. In this way, the opponent can be guided and manipulated rather than simply struck with percussive strikes.
