Handmade Nunchaku

If you are reading this page the odds are you are looking for the best nunchucks in the world. You have come to the right place. 20 years ago we started making custom crafted, handmade nunchaku to use in our martial arts studies. The idea was based on having a martial arts weapon that was personal to the user and not some generic soulless cookie cutter product from a factory overseas. The other concept was to have a martial arts weapon be made in America with only American materials. While the exotic hardwood tree is grown in other countries, we only buy hardwoods from American hardwood importers and dealers. People all over the world study martial arts with a passion. It is more than a sport and in many cases it is a way of life. The study of any martial art is a life changing positive experience. We simply believe that the tools you use to do that study of these arts should have a special and personal connection to it’s user.

Here at American Nunchaku Co we make real nunchaku or serious martial arts and free style users who want something more than a cheap imported item. If you are looking for the best nunchaku in the world, we are the beginning and end to that search. We are absolutely hated by the import outlets that sell martial arts supplies because we do what they can not. We sell handmade nunchaku, custom made and strung by real martial artists. This site is best viewed on a tablet or computer to display all the different nunchaku that we offer. GO TO SHOP PAGE

Over the years we have expanded our hardwood selection that is second to none. and we offer size options you will simply not find at the karate outlet online store. The best part of it all is that they are all still handmade nunchaku.

The Nunchaku, what is it really called?

Welcoming in a Nunchaku New Year

Welcoming in a Nunchaku New Year

Now welcoming in a nunchaku new year Well it has been a crazy year in America.  As it comes to a close we want to thank everyone who has made USA Nunchaku grow this year.  I have been making these nunchaku for 20 years now.  It all started in a friend’s garage next to my 2nd Apartment during the first years of my Kung fu training.  In 1997 selling things on the internet was still a bit advanced but I was able to pull it off for a select few.  Now welcoming in a nunchaku new year for  2017 to all our customers all over the world is something we are proud to do.

This year America is likely going to change.  A number of years ago we set out to be an American company who wanted to make our product here in the United States with people and materials that were made here as well.  I can promise you as this idea catches on with other American businesses this year we will continue to do our part and always take the American worker, product or company first.  It matters to everyone we serve and to us as we make our American Nunchaku that even in a small way we help make the change back to a time when “made in USA” meant everything. Now welcoming in a nunchaku new year

Great News for chain fans!

After a long research and development process  I’m excited and proud to announce that 2017 will be the year USA Nunchaku co. starts making our first run of chain linked nunchaku.  They are going to be something special.  We have gone to great lengths to make a new product that we hope will become the rebirth of a long forgotten style of nunchaku made with quality in America.  All signs point to A February release date, make sure to sign up for our news letter to get the latest information on when they are ready. 

On Behalf of USA Nunchaku have a Great and Happy New Year!
