Also known as nunchaku, nunchucks,
chucks or chain sticks, originally a farm tool used
to harvest rice, it developed into a traditional Okinawan
weapon and consists of two sticks connected at their
ends with a short chain or rope.
During the Japanese occupation of
Okinawa some 350 years ago, invading warlords
prohibited the use of ordinary weapons such as the
gun, sword and spear. So, the Okinawans turned
to karate and kobu-do, which is the art of
karate weapons such as the bo (a staff),
sai (a short sword with the two prongs at the
handle, kama (a sickle), and surushin,
a length of rope with weights attached to both ends)
for protection. Some kobu-do weapons were farm
implements which the ingenious farmers converted
into effective protective devices. For instance, the
forerunner of the nunchaku was an instrument used to
pound grain, which was later put to practical use as
a weapon. The nunchaku was constructed of two
hardwood sticks which were securely connected by
rope braided from horses' tails. Today, the
sticks are tied with rope or chain. Because of
is innocent appearance, nunchucks could easily be
mistaken for a toy or harmless bundle of sticks.
In a defensive situation, however, it could be used
to strike, block, hit, twist and pinch.
We import nunchucks directly, we also
manufacture some... Nobody can COMPETE!
