What is bo jut su?

Bojutsu is the art/technique (jutsu) of the long staff (bo). It can be studied as a part of a wider martial cursus (as in certain schools of jujutsu and kenjutsu, or karate) or independantly. The usually admitted length of a bo is from 1.60 m to 2.80 m. A shorter staff would be a Jo (or Jyo), a longer would be considered as a training Yari (spear).

Were did a martial arts bo come from?

The person that first picked up a stick. As people learned to use it, they passed the skills on to their family. With regards to Japanese martial arts, the use of the bo as a weapon became popularized roughly during the 1600's while Japan was occupying the Ryu-ku Islands (Okinawa is on these islands, and at the time and for many centuries were not considered part of Japan). During this time it was against the law for the inhabitants of the islands to have a sword, the weapon of choice of the time. However, the locals still found it necessary to defend themselves against bandits who did have swords, so the bo was used because it was widely available. At the time rice flails were used as well (nuchaku) as were the handles to mill wheels (tonfa). I don't think any one person can be accredited with inventing the bo; however, there are some people who have become very proficient with the bo. The long pole was a common tool used by farmers throughout South East Asia for carrying heavy loads balanced across their shoulders and for planting rice plants in the rice paddies. As anyone that becomes proficient with their tools knows, they become comfortable with them and can use them with great experience and ability. It becomes an extension of the body.
