    that's really good, I just mess about with nunchucks so I'm not exactly an expert but I was impressed.

    great videos, im just about to go on your website. i mess around with nunchaku as well, but i have always had wooden ones, not foam, and to be honest, i found this improved me because i became more careful, if you use foam, its ok 2 go wrong ad you become sloppy, is this just me, or does anybody else have anything to say on the matter (i kniow its knida irrelevant buti just thought id bring it up because this is the only nunchaku thread iv seen)

    I use nunchuka and to be honest I've never used the foam one's. I believe that with the foam one's you could get very profiecient at.. Foan nunchuka's. Obviously anything else is VERY different. I'm not saying that wood is better or anything like that but I would suggest it depends on what you want from it. If you want to be good and injury free then go with the foam. If you want the full package then go with the wooden. Obviously there are other types like metal, telescopic, acrylic etc but it is down to you.
    Personally, I wanted to learn traditional Okinanwan nunchuka so that was the path I have chosen and the path I tread. Not right or wrong, just my choice!

    Thanks for the compliments.. Its great to hear my site and vid's are appreciated :love:
    I dont believe foam nunchaku are bad, I use them quite a lot, especially when practicing techniques that could easy harm me if they were my metal ones ;)
    I dont think they harm your training particularly, aslong as they are good foam nunchaku, asin the ones with the wooden bars under the foam instead of the brittle plastic nunchaku, then the wieght is at least a little realistic..
    Plus theres the issue of breaking stuff when i start throwing them in the air, which makes foam nunchaku all the more practical :rolleyes:

    Oh yeah, I found that telescopic nunchaku were better once you break the chain, then et viola, you have two telescopic battons (damn, where is an evil smiley when you need one hehe)

    I havent, but I regard nunchaku more as a toy to me than a weapon..

    Those are pretty fun to watch, but I ahve to admit, I am getting old: I watched your first clip and I thought "DON'T PLAY WITH THOSE IN THE HOUSE, YOU'LL BREAK SOMETHING!!!" hahahahaha :cool:

    As for sparring, a guy in my Kempo calss brought in his foam set, he's not real skilled with them yet... but we went at it. I only found one strategy that worked - try to get inside while he is recovering from a strike. I would try to hover at the edge of his range, tempt him onto thinking I was in range, draw back then shoot in as fast as possible and try to jam up his weapon. I would not want to try that against a wooden set.

    I have sort of sparred with nunchucks. Although it was closer to us just hitting each other with them seeing as blocking would divet our concentration from the hitting. (only foam covered ones though, we're not that hard)
