Training with a longstaff is a lot of fun, but takes hard work and diligence - but it is REALLY FUN to train with the longstaff. No wonder the longstaff is the most widely practiced martial arts weapons in the world. The Longstaff - Jangbong (korean) is the first weapons a student should learn in Jangmookido. This weapon is represented by a long wood staff made of bamboo that measures 72 inches (1.8m) long with a diameter lenght Approx 1 - 1.2 inches, which is the standard length. Bamboo Jangbong is very flexible and strong used fore self-defense at all times ( ancient to now time ) and improve the practitioner's overall mental, physical and spiritual well-being.

 The Jangbong Training of Jangmookido! 

MOMPULKI - Body Warm-up Exercises
We start all our workouts with a Mompulki; begins with Jangbong flows, are very important to learn to scan the Jangbong and to get you started: Change grip, Side to side, The Way around, Body spinning, Pole strengh, Longstaff strething and Jangbong balance. Are some exercises to mention. Of course Jangbong etiquette is included, how to put down and pick up the pole from the floor correctly and how to respect others and yourself by bowing etiquette.

Learn Individual Techniques first; not combinations or full forms.
Many Longstaff students purchase training clips that teach a full combo or a form. The matrial does not actually break down each individual technique. This will hamper your excellence in your technique and training ability - It is important to learn piece by piece. Once you learn all individual techniques; you can then string together amazing combinations and forms. Beginners in Jangmookido starting with the basics that we call Kibondonjak. The most important part of the basic educations are posture, right/left side longstaff knowledge, clean jangbong technology and the disciplined use of Jangmookido Jangbong.

KIBONDONJAK The basics of Jangmookido 
Two types of grips; Parallell grip
( Yang ban ) and Yin-Yang grip ( Pjeong ban ), Long range
( Dae dang ) and Short range ( So dang ), 5 Attacks ( Kong kyuk ), 12 Postures ( Jase ), Blocks, Steps, Jangbong Spins and Etiquette.

Make the Jangbong an Extension of your Body.
Do you want to be able to move like a longstaff martial art master...?  Stupid question, of course you want it...!  Then you should think about; when you practicing with your Jangbong is that it is just an extension of your body, an exended arm. When you do a front strike, figure 8 spin; your entire body flows with the Jangbong, not against it. This will create beautiful flowing combinations and impressive abilities. To become one with the Jangbong then we practice something called Hyung in Korean which is pattern/forms. There are Eight Hyung, from White to Black belt.  This series of Hyungs is called:

PALJANGSA - The Eight Great Warriors Jangbong Forms

- Kibon Jangbong Hyung
- Ki Cho Jangbong Hyung
- Cho Geup Jangbong Hyung
- Joong Geup Jangbong Hyung
- Goh Geup Jangbong Hyung
- Dae Geup Jangbong Hyung
- Moo Geup Jangbong Hyung
- Ssang Geup Jangbong Hyung

DAE RYUN - Combat Technique
Another part of Jangmookido training is Dae Ryun - Combat techniques a parner exercise which is application of our amazing Hyung. What I mean that our Hyung training is a preparatory for sparring, in this way of training you understand the forms inside. Ki bub - Breathing techniques is very important in Jangmookido.
With a mix of ki breathing and dynamic Jangmookido techniques, you can finding and understand the Jangbong combat skills of inner beigins and obvious, the student develop a strong control over the Jangbong and Self.

BÄGI - Focus and Precision Training
Ancient elit warriorship meets modern martial arts and sport fitness of jangbong health, it is the true character of Jangmookido. The Jangbong is long and has weight, moving higher intesity workout. The training actively tons the arms and legs, abdominal and back muscles, also the most important muscle; our heart.  To compensate for the physical training, we also have mental training, through what we call Bägi, based on Focus and Precision training. When we put out candles ( Cheot-bul kkeuki ) with the Jangbong. Starting from 3 Keub/Red belt, we cut paper ( Jong-ee Bägi ) with the Jangbong as well.
In Bägi, pure Jangbong techniques and a open and clear mind are required to be able to pass the chop tests.

BLACK BELT; The Next Level
A skill full Jangmookido master knows when, where and how to use the softness, speedness and power. The mind and the body must be perfectly coordinated. The new students of Jangmookido need to have willingness, patience, discipline and burning heart warming welcoming to their training, to get a chance to reach the end goal;
The Black Belt!

 There are so many reasons why Jangbong  
 is one
 the best in the Martial Art panorama: 

1. it's cheap: you can build a jangbong by yourself, the matrial the long staff is made of          grows around us, or can also use a broomstick or somthing similar matrial...
2. it's simple: pick up a stick and start training!
3. it's extremly efficient: because of its lenght, it can kill, but can also keep the opponent      away of properly used.
4. it's noble: By practicing, the body and mind are being trained and you feel happier in          your life. 
5. it won't hurt (too much) if you "stuff up" compared to a real sword,
     it's certainly worhy the risk.
6. it's still useful if it breaks: two short sticks, in fact, are still a powerful set of weapons.
7. it's pure fun: dynamic and common movement are particulary enjoyable to learn.
8. it's for everyone: men, women, young and anciens can train Jangbong skills and have      fun together.

Because of the above reasons, to learn the Longstaff - Jang Bong is the ability to switch to more advaced weapons such as the spear, three section staff and more, by virtue of the fact that basic movements are just the same.
