Mistakenly called Chizikun Bo.  This was due to a misunderstanding when Taika Seiyu Oyata introduced the weapon in the US.

Two short sticks, about 6 inches in length, held in the palm of the hand with a string around the middle finger.  They are used to strike and poke, greatly enhance Tuite and Kyushu strikes.

Tijiun in Uchinaguchi (Okinawan language) means fist.  Bo is Japanese for the Uchinaguchi term Kun which is the 6′ tapered wooded weapon.  Thus, Tijikun Bo is a Fist Bo.
