Actually, no, he can't. He is doing someone's b.s. idea of what a staff form is. There are only five discrete moves in his form, to wit, a right front block, an overhead spin, a side spin repeated ad nauseum so it looks like a lot more than is actually there, a right front strike, and a spear strike, with what some people think is a fierce look and some screams.

Please note the toothpick he is using. I guarantee it will break before anyone he hits with it. Move's fast and looks flashy. Nice grimaces, too.

This is called "the empty sleeve and brocade leg," which means it looks impressive to those who know nothing about martial arts.

If I seem extremely negative about this, it is because I hate seeing the true richness of genuine martial arts reduced to baby sitter karate, and lauded by the unknowing.

Believe me, this is a very mild rant. I'm actually feeling rather benevolent today.
