I am having trouble in keeping the my Jo from hitting my head! In class sensei has us warm-up by sometimes twirling the jo around like one would twirl a baton, (Just no over the head deals) for another a explanation, (for those of you who know star wars) we kinda' twirl it around like Darth mal! and I keep hitting my self in the head! Any tips?

Keep the knuckles facing forward and the elbow unbent.

Hope this helps.
