Thanks for sharing this. Staff is my favorite weapon, so I was excited to check it out.

Unfortunately, there wasn't much actual staff work in the video itself (one clip at 2:30, and another at 42:10). The one at 2:30 had a really nice dummy for practicing staff. The clip at 42:10 was all show. Besides the flowery twirling, he only showed a combination of an upward diagonal slash and thrust.

I noticed the title was "Ritual Staff." Does this particular style only use the staff as part of rituals? It seems like the staff has a special place in the style (based on the incense and bowing), just not necessarily for fighting.
