Thanks for all of the enlightening responses guys. As far as I'm concerned, when a post is responded to it should be answered as directly as possible. As for the "food related" metaphors, I do not wish for the buffet-version of everyone's responses, I simply wanted the "fast-food" version. I wanted a straight-up answer of some url's to find some info. and then I politely asked for some "good" book titles only to be told to use Google in a very rude way?!?!??! This is pathetic. Every forum I use ends up in being a fight just to get people to understand what the original question said. For all it matters to me, don't respond in an arrogant and rude way if you don't want to be responded to in that way as well. Now, does anyone have any decent responses to my original question!?!?!?!?!

BD,

Let me make this simple. First you ask a question and after that internet discussion takes its own direction. That's thw way it is. But you obviously aren't satisfied with the answers being offered.

There are no intelligent references for movies, video clips or books that will teach you nunchaku. But feel free to clip yourself in the head a few times to get the point!

I've been at this a long time. I don't train anyone in weapons till they reach a level of training where I feel it is worth my and their time to study them (and thats after reaching black belt in my system of study). I've had black belts join the program and they've followed the same instruction path as a new beginner. It was their choice because the found some value to the way I teach and what I have to offer. That's their choice.

And FYI I train Bo, Tonfa, Kama, Sai, Stick, Tanto and Chinese straight sword. None of which can be truly learned anyways but hands on.

You want a weapon to look cool. I teach weapons and that's not an adequate reason to study them, ever, IMO. In fact that's a reason not to share them with somebody. The only value in Okinawan weapons today is to develop subsidiary strength for karate training, and the same applies to the Chinese weapons training.

But internet discussion opens other lines of discussion.

You will not find nunchaku at home self schooling anywhere. And that's the way it is.

Pleasantly,

Victor Smith

your original question:
Quote:

Does anyone have any good links to sites that show cool nunchaku katas to do. I just got my nunchaku and I am eager to learn.




I offered this:
Quote:

not sure about the 'cool' or 'good' but here you go:
http://karate.dhs.org/kata/nunchaku.htm




I didn't hear a thanks, and my feelings were shattered. {sniff}{sniff}{dribble}

Thanks, I was caught in all the uproar about "edible metaphors" that I didn't even notice you put a link.

truthfully i would wait for my sensei to teach me about the nunchaku if for no other reason than respect for my sensei... but thats just me i can see your want for the nunchaku to look cool in your hands who doesn't? all i can say is BE CAREFUL WITH THE THINGS(i hit myself in the "not so funny bone" with my nunchaku) and well my whole arm went numb and i dropped them on the floor. most will say thats stupidity on my part i call it "un planned conditioning"
