    Are you referring to a long staff like a Bo or a shorter staff like the Jo?

    It makes a difference.

    The Jo was used to fight against the sword. The advantage goes to the better skilled person. Using a Jo you can use a variety of different techniques to throw or do joint locks if someone were able to grab it.

    A weapon is no more then an extention of the body. And is only as usefullas the person using it.

    It doesn't matter the weapon it matters how good the person yeilding the weapon can use it.

    And thereare hundreds if not thousands of sword types, lengths, as well as single and double sword styles
