Akuzawa here in Tokyo does a version of it, except with a 6 foot long staff, which he holds with his pinky

Same principal tho. And yes he teaches you how to develop this body skill.
I'll ask you what I have asked Dan H. and others: put a video on YouTube of Akuzawa doing the jo trick (and you, if you can do it), and post the link here. Otherwise, it's just talk.
