Arizona Samurai Learn Hanbo (half stick).

After 2 years of training with hanbo (a 3-foot stick) and expandable police baton (ASP), seven members of the Arizona School of Traditional Karate were tested by Grandmaster Soke Hausel on February 27th, 2014 for abilities in use of this Japanese martial arts weapon for self-defense. All of the candidates demonstrated applications against unarmed and armed attackers using various blocks, strikes and throws.
