Advice from a self-proclaimed master beginner who will start his own style even though it's practically impossible (by his own estimation).

Unless you want to play or pretend (ala the "Star Wars Kid" video), you'll need to get your knuckles rapped a few dozen times & then come back for more.

owari

-------
good advice, but do pull your head in and don't needle the kid.

I MUST come up with a term for "home beginners with weapons".

my knuckles and base of my palm, right before the wrist, are covered in scrapes and junk right now from my numchuks. and i am not a self proclaimed master. im not even high white belt yet. your sarcasm is more of a direct insult : /

-------
It's an insult only if you let it be one. You are after all, a person who is not training properly in a dojo, so you have no rank and no authority.

Since you are very new here I will let you off just this once but DON'T keep needling people.

UmYang what part of "home learning is not effective" are you having trouble understanding? This has got to be at least the second or third thread you've started on this subject. Home learning is not a good idea period. Instruction from a qualified instructor is a must. I don't know why you keep posting in hopes of getting a different answer, cause it will always be the same.

I suggest you lurk a while, maybe you'll finally understand the importance of what many of these other experienced martial artists have to say.

You will need to learn to master the art of spelling of the word nunchaku too.

Your "master" knows the nunchuka? If not he may not know what he's looking at. "Cool! Flippy twirly things!" "Varry good umyangsan!"

I really think it depends on the person. Some people learn differently from others. But I do think that the "home learner's" skills should be assessed at some point by a professional.

i learned kali sticks bo and numchucks by video. but i know that video is only basically a beginners guide despite if they say youll be like bruce lee. so i had my master show me some stuff. although i am better than i thought i was i am still a beginner. but from what he showed me, videos are the best substitute for not being able to take a class. books and people who "taught them selves" have no clue what their doing.




Thats great! and you still call them nuMchucks??? ask for a refund.

To learn bo applications (or staff applications ) find an INSTRUCTOR.
It is O.K. to rumble a bit from what you learned in CLASS with your bo at home.
But just QUIT when you think you are DOING WRONG. So you don't increase risk of creating BAD HABITS
Then ask your INSTRUCTOR when you get to CLASS again.

I hope this is rather clear to those DIY MA-ists.
