Along with the Sangot, the Bogsai is one of the primary weapons and learning tools of the VCKE system. Incredibly versatile, it can be used at Largo, Medio and Corto ranges, single, double and back handed, striking with both ends.
The use of the Bogsai is a great way to practice the body alignments so crucial to Sonny's way - particularly the turning of the shoulders, and focus on the hip/hand connection.
All the major power acceleration methods are contained within it's usage, and perhaps one of it's greatest benefits is as a tool to understand range - climb ups, angles, and the general geometry of the space between the players.
A simple weapon, yet demanding a complex understanding.
