Traditional Nunchaku Design

Unlike mass produced martial arts weapons made overseas, we designed our nunchaku to be easy to hold, not get sticky and give you confidence as you practice your forms.  Originally the nunchaku was designed from farming tools in China.  Occupied Chinese were not allowed to have weapons and a whole range of new weapons sprung from the tools at hand.  Our nunchaku are not mass produced, each one is made one at a time.  We use exotic hardwoods and try to get every inch of wood used in our product.  Some of these woods are hard to find in usable sizes so we take great care to get the most out of each piece.  The design is to last and be durable.

  • Unlike polypropylene, wood feels great allowing martial artists to practice as much as they like
  • Octagon-shaped grip with grooves for a more realistic experience
  • heavyweight and durable
  • Carbon steel Universal joint for smooth motions
