the buugeng is a type of s-staff.
to the best of my knowledge, it is used to engage in geometric visual warfare
GEOMETRIC VISUAL WARFARE.
Metal bending on point.
its a mental game, the hypnotic movements can make even a hardened fighter stumble even for a second, a lot of weaponry is outfitted with even little trinkets to mess with someone’s head, a spear can be tipped with a feather ring or a ribbon to make it look flashy, drawing attention to the very tip, giving smalls chances here and there for the user to hook the other end of the spear behind a foot, or whip it around to strike a vital spot like the groin,head,throat.
a lot of oriental curved swords are fit with ribbons or even rings, a lot of people think the rings are just for show but they are not, when the blade slings past the target the rings vibrate against the back of the blade causing a ripple or chatter, this distracts the target into focusing more on the sound, and the sound can often fool someone’s timing, making the blade seem like its going faster, or closer than it actually is.
shields are done the same way, shields were often painted with bright colours like reds, yellows, whites. when moving the shield the colours make it stand out more and drawing the targets eyes away for just enough time for the other hand to whip around and plant a axe in the targets face, or slip in between the weak spots in armour like an armpit, eye slit,groin, or underneath a loose breastplate
ancient warfare wasn’t all just slash and bash, they had their own mind games they could play in a fight. some of you may think that its stupid but it really isnt
