CS91ES: 91ES Training Staff
Cold Steel
Many fans and customers share their love for the Martial Arts, and they have been asking Cold Steel to produce longer training tools for many years; and now, thanks to recent pioneering innovations in the world of high-strength polymer production, we are proud to offer the first Cold Steel synthetic training staff!

Cold Steel company President Lynn C Thompson has studied and trained with numerous pole arms, spears and staves (like the Krabi Krabong Staff with Guro Ron Balicki) and he found that a hard wearing octagonal "Okinawan style" Japanese Staff was an excellent training tool for all of these disciplines and more. Therefore, the first of the long training tools features a traditional octagonal cross section for superior grip and comfort.

Perfect for pell work and for conditioning training, this high-impact staff will be the perfect addition to any Martial Artists training regime.

Pros: Material, Construction, Weight, Balance
Cons: None
I bought 4 of these to use for staff and short stick training, as we have broken wood staffs.I cut 2 to 48'' length which is what I use.I cut 2 so as to have a pair of 24'' and a pair of 30" short sticks. Cuts on the 24" measure gave me one 24'' and one 30''(less the thickness of the 90 degree miter caw cut) from each 54" staff.Before cutting the 54" staff, I did 2 impact tests. Full power over hand 2 hand swing into a concrete floor. Slight 1/8'' scuff on the side of the end of the staff.Full power overhand 2 hand swing into a horizontal log, striking about 1/2 way down the staff. Slight scuff only.There is not much vibration transferred to hands upon impact.They are heavier than most wood.I like the octagon shape.When cut some slight voids/bubbles were found, match head sized, they do not matter to me.

Training Jo
The product meets all of the requirement. I only wish it wasn't nearly one inch thick in diameter. A jo needs to have a smaller circumference.

More Then a Simple Trainer
Cold Steel's line of training weapons has yet to let me down and this training staff actually exceeded my expectations. I purchased it mostly as a walking staff for outdoor wood walks or daily jaunts around my neighborhood to keep me in shape with the secondary purpose of self defense. Like all of the CS trainers, it is made out of super tough polypropylene, so it won't crack, swell or shrink like wood and is completely water proof, a big concern where I live thanks to rain and snow and is nearly unbreakable. It has a really neat wood grain pattern cast into it that gives good grip along with it's octagonal cross section. At 54" in length, it has plenty of reach and leverage but not overly long. My only "complaint" is the weight, which is about almost double compared to most woods staffs. But if you want to build up your upper body strength and want something that will put a serious smack on a feral dog or bad guy without worrying about breakage, this is the one to get and worth the money. One simple modification I did to this staff was the installation of a rubber chair cap I purchased for 60 cents at a local hard wear store. Although they didn't have a 1.5" dia. cap, I was able to use a 1.25 dia. one by soaking it in boiling water for a couple of minutes while letting the end of the staff soak in a bucket of ice for the same amount of time. This process worked like a charm and it would take an incredible amount of work to remove it.
