Hey friend(s), I’m curious about the tradition of wood; Is there any particular tree used to make your pau? and what are your practioners referred to as?

Hi, we use mostly lote (Celtis australis ) and quince (Cydonia oblonga) but lote is easier to get, somewhat flexible so it doesn’t break as often and last longer.
Traditional name for fighters is “puxadores“ but that was used in a time when jogo do pau was still used for practical reasons, right now we call simply jogadores de pau, that I translate as staff fencers.
