History
Bōjutsu (棒術), translated from Japanese as "staff technique"
Is the martial art of using a staff weapon called bō which simply means "staff".
Staves have been in use for thousands of years in East Asian martial arts like Silambam. Some techniques involve slashing, swinging, and stabbing with the staff. Others involve using the staff as a vaulting pole or as a prop for hand-to-hand strikes.
Today bōjutsu is usually associated either with Okinawan kobudō or with Japanese koryū budō. Japanese bōjutsu is one of the core elements of classical martial training.

Style
Thrusting, swinging, and striking techniques often resemble empty-hand movements, following the philosophy that the bo is merely an "extension of one’s limbs". Consequently, bojutsu is often incorporated into other styles of empty-hand fighting, or karate.
In the Okinawan context, the weapon is frequently referred to as the kon.
