The American Handcrafted Nunchaku or nunchucks (Japanese: ヌンチャク Hepburn: nunchaku, often “nunchuks“, “chainsticks“, “chuka sticks” or “karate sticks” in English) is a traditional Okinawan martial arts weapon consisting of two sticks connected at one end by a short chain or rope. The two sections of the weapon are commonly made out of wood, while the link is a cord or a metal chain. The nunchaku is most widely used in martial arts such as Okinawan kobudō and karate, and is used as a training weapon, since it allows the development of quicker hand movements and improves posture. Modern-day nunchaku can be made from metal, wood, plastic or fiberglass. Toy and replica versions made of polystyrene foam or plastic are also available. Possession of this weapon is illegal in some countries, except for use in professional martial art schools.
Every martial artist starts out and after some training, begin to acquire the weapons they study. This happens in schools of every martial art style. When this time happened for me for the nunchaku, I was less than pleased with the standard issue chuck in bag, UN strung nunchucks from china. It cost about $19 plus shipping but was in reality worthless because they were too uncomfortable to learn with.
