Staff Spinning

A Staff Spinning, or Pole Twirling Guide

Staff spinning has long been an art form in many cultures, such as Polynesian Fire dances. Also known as deeblesticks, a great deal of the techniques evolved from martial art forms such as bo and jo stick, eskrima and aikido. See also the Club Swinging page for information on Whip chains, which are 7 or 9 sectional staffs. A Western variation upon the theme is cane manipulation, a skill most commonly associated with W.C. Fields, or Fred Astaire.
