    ~~~~~~~~~
    ~~~~~~~~~~

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~.A Tai-aha is a Maori weapon, as shown in the following picture.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~You may usually refer to this as a bo-staff, pole or stick.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~My aim for this tutorial is to help people use this weapon confidently.
    ~~~~~~.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The .pivs for each animation, you can get by clicking the gif of it.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    There are a lot of possible positions to stand in, while you aren't fighting with the tai-aha. A great amount of these positions would be defensive. Enough room to defend and a stable position incase of unexpected attacks. Also, a position where you can attack in many directions is reccomended.
    Here is an example of a good position.

    This one is best if you expect the attack from the front. But this isn't the best position he could be in.
    It would be better like this:

    This gives them more balance in the tai-aha and it's easier to attack from behind.
    You can find your own positions but this is the one I would recommend.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~JAB

    This is best for close and accurate attacks. Also more effective than a slash because it is harder to defend from.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 1

    ^^ This is our beginning stance. Also notice is is defensive.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 2

    ^^ Bend the front leg so he can throw himself foward.
    ^^ Bend his body foward so he can lurch foward at his enemy.
    ^^ Rotate the tai-aha slightly. If it continued at the angle it was in it would jab too low.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 3

    ^^ Bend the front leg a larger amount so he moves foward more.
    ^^ Slightly turn the tai-aha up but move it foward too.
    ^^ Push the body foward so he can add force into the jab.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 4

    ^^ Use the legs a lot now. Move his whole body foward.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 5

    ^^ Use the legs even more. This is a huge movement and this shows the force in the blow.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 6

    ^^ This is where the tai-aha jabs the other man/stick or jabs the air.
    ^^ Slow everything down a lot.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 7

    ^^ This frame is entirely for easing, for a smoother jab.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ~~~~~~~~~SWITCH - With or Without Trails.

    This is a faster movement than Jab. This one looks much better with trails, as shown above.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 1

    ^^ This is our beginning stance. This is almost the same as Jab's position, therefore called 'Switch', because a Jab could be expected but a Switch will occur instead.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 2

    ^^ Bend the front leg so he can move fowards
    ^^ Bend his body foward so he can lurch foward at his enemy.
    ^^ Begin to bend the straigher arm above his head.
    ^^ Move the arm in the chicken wing shape back further and bring his hand closer to his shoulder.
    ^^ Rotate the tai-aha slightly. This move includes a large slash. So I'd reccomend looking at my trails examples. Click them above to download the piv, like the Jab picture.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 3

    ^^ Bend the front leg a larger amount so he moves foward more.
    ^^ Move the tai-aha at a large angle, but not too far so it stays smooth.
    ^^ Move the body foward more, bend the back leg so he pushed his weight to his front foot.
    ^^ Continue to bend the straighter arm around at a large angle, making sure the tai-aha stays roughly in the same place where his hand held it in the previous frames.
    ^^ Tuck the chicken wing arm up further.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 4

    ^^ Use the legs more and lean him foward.
    ^^ Increase the distance the tai-aha travels in the arc and tuck up the chicken wing further, so the 2 arm joints are on to of each other.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 5

    ^^ This is the biggest movement in the tai-aha. Move it in a great amount.
    ^^ Slow down the speed he leans at now. He needs to keep his balance.
    ^^ The chicken wing would continue it's trail of motion, moving above the shoulder joint.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 6

    ^^ This is where the tai-aha hits the other man/stick or hits the air.
    ^^ Slow everything down a lot and begin to ease.
    ^^ Hunch his back a little to show force.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 7

    ^^ This frame is entirely for easing, and to smoothen the move.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 8

    ^^ This frame alsois entirely for easing, and to smoothen the move.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VV Frame 9

    ^^ Even this frame is entirely for easing, and to smoothen the move
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
