Using the Rokushakubo, the "six foot staff", to help you stretch your body and improve balance is one technique you can start trying for general conditioning. Using the Bo to stretch helps you align your spine and limbs properly. It helps you to extend limbs or your entire spine during stretches in ways that are not possible without the stabilizing stick.
And any new way you can learn to manipulate and play with the staff will help you become more comfortable and versatile with different ways to handle it when you are not stretching, too. This will help you respond instantly to unusual moves that might be needed to defend yourself in real-life types of spontaneous attacks. While you might not carry around a Rokushakubo in real life, think about how many household objects around you could apply the same principles such as brooms, mops, curtain rods...
Using infinite techniques for conditioning your body, Junan Taiso, is a critical part of your martial arts training. Standard gym workouts, stretching, yoga and modern methods are just a few ways you can strengthen yourself. Old traditional methods could include climbing or pushing down bamboo in a forest, scrambling up cliff faces and any other activity you can think of.
Dr. Richard Faygenholtz of Santa Cruz California has developed a complete scientific program of "Stick Stretching" that helps people strengthen and also to heal from injuries. Sensei Roemke and Dr. Faygenholtz teach stick stretching and other body conditioning techniques at the Santa Cruz Bujinkan Dojo and Pathways Dojo in California.
