    ok, I'll be 36 in Aug. ****, we must be twins. Mines the 5th.

    ok, so, like, you mastered the chucks when you were 14??

    hmm, let's see...where oh where might I shop for some nunchaku???

    That might be my problem. It could be the wood causing the "I" brace to fail.

    Any way. I also like octogon over round.

    Cound't open the catalog for the Okinawan site. I'll check with my favorite store, though.

    P.S. Thanx to every one on their insites. I've always bought chain because I thought roap ( ) was shoddy. Sounds like I've been pretty deluded.

    becca, try cutting and pasting or typing it in. It seemed to be a pretty traditional site with good, basic, no-frills weapons.

    rope is just fine. goto a climbing store and ask for some 2 or 3 mm kevlar and restring it and you will have a hot set of chucks!!!

    Nope. Problem is with my computer not wanting to open the attachment that contains the order info. I think I can order them threw my local MS supply store, though. And I've got some 2 mm Kevlar. (Like to climb) I'm really looking forward to this; chuks are one of my favorite weapons. You just can't beat them for practicality, beuty, and nothing impresses reletives and friends like smashing an apple still on the tree with "Nose Buster." I am realy looking forward to the day Sifu discides to let me learn three section staff.

    It is also a weapon found in some filipino island systems. Used in Amante Marinas Sr.'s Pananandata style it is called tabak toyok.

    Hi guys

    Does anyone have a good link to a site that explains / shows how to make nunchaku?

    They are easy to make.

    I have never found any 'good' nunchaku sites.

    strike!

    i made my very first set of chucks back about 1982

    they came in very handy for killing the copperhead that bit me in April of 1983.

    i don't know what became of them, they were in the backpack with the dead snake when I was admitted to Duke. Perhaps some rival ninja masquerading as a doctor stole them to discover the secrets of killin' snakes...
