Red Heart Round Chain Nunchaku

The Red Heart Round U Swivel Nunchaku is a new style nunchaku in the shop this summer.  The handle is 12″ and we added am extra chain link. We have been making nunchaku by hand for 20 years.  In that time the number one request has always been handmade chain linked nunchaku.  To do it right, we had to go back in time and skip the cheap imported barely metal versions of this classic martial arts weapon.  It’s a dense tropical hardwood with deep brown and red colors.  Each one is hand cut , sanded and oiled.  Like all of our nunchaku each of one of kind made one at a time.   All are 100% made, sold and shipped in the United States.

Traditional Nunchaku Design

Unlike mass produced martial arts weapons made overseas, we designed our red heart 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.  We take out the least amounts of wood to keep them strong and use rope that will only fill the voids to make them easy to repair.  We have re string kits available as well as instruction as to how to re string our nunchaku when it becomes necessary.

  • Realistically practice self-defense, martial art forms and demonstrations with the feel and maneuverability of real weapons
  • Unlike polypropylene, wood feels great allowing martial artists to practice as much as they like
  • Quiet rope design for training
  • Round-shaped
  • medium weight
