Bought a Nunchaku today !

Modern nunchaku comes from Okinawa ( Japan). Japanese occupiers of Okinawa banned the possession of bladed weapons to strentghen their grip on power. The people invented new non bladed weapons utilising simple farming tools for practical self defense. With time some of these tools were modified quite significantly into the weapons that we know today.The practice of these weapons is known as Kobudo. These may be thought of as Karate with weapons

Basic Nunchaku techniques :

Locks and chokes
Longer sequences of flowing strikes
More advanced gathers

Nunchaku strengths include incredible speed and a great deal of flexibility in what can be done. Nunchaku weaknesses include difficulty in blocking and the need to recover after striking
