he didnt say he wanted to learn to use it as a "striking" weapon anyway. By the way you wont have a ropedart or a nunchaku with you in any situation so basiclly everything you learn with them is useless. He wants to learn flashy tricks using a damn ropedart, someone please bloody tell him instead of saying " get an instuctor" like bloody robots. OK!?!?!?! jeeze these topics **** me off

I realize that Crab. But the when you post in a weapons forum that is generally poplulated with traditionlists, you are going to get this sort of feedback. If you want to learn tricks, dont post on a weapons forum. Doing tricks and flash is not learning a weapon.

ill reluctantly agree to that. However the weapons forum should get a bit smarter and realise most people only want to learn to spin the weapons around and look cool. Not learn how to use them traditionally.

To me, that sounds like buying one of those electronic keyboards, just so you can play those nifty helicopter and barking sounds, not to actually learn how to play the thing.

Think about it, if you are training in weapons for self defence, then you are either a) an idiot or b) an idiot. Seeing as weapons are totally useless anyway since it hasnt been the thirteenth century for a while now. I mean if you are training because of the tradition aspect of it then good on you, but weapons have no place in todays society aside from showing off like a little bitch. Which im sure is what most people are doing.
Anyway in a nutshell my point is that its silly to train nunchucks or whatever "offensively" , since its ...well pointless. There is NO use for a weapon aside from katas and showing off, and for that he can learn off the internet. As I said before I am now quite proficient in using nunchucks, and all I did was look at some slow motion videos on youtube. Just tell the guy where to find his damn dvd's or whatever and let us be done with this wretched topic.

Then they should go elsewhere. I have a few forums they can visit...if they need some suggestions.

crab, your Troll-Fu is in rare form today.

Weapons have no place in self-defense? Are you serious?
Ever heard of picking up a stick? Tire iron?
Ok, maybe no one is walking around with a set of nunchaku or kama, or strapping a katana to their hip, but weapons training helps you learn that everything is a weapon.
Escrima = stick picked up from the ground.
Bo = Pool Cue.

It seems to me a know-it-all like you should be able to do that.

guys the answer people do not want to hear is "find an instructor" ...he made the topic so he could learn off a damn book. I learned nunchucks from looking at internet guides, and i can swing them like a pro now. I dont know about that particular weapon but can someone else give him an an answer other than " find an instructor" . look up videos on youtube, there might be something there.

goddamit lol




taking a low jab - is this how you also learnt your sparring skills?

I live in Los Angeles in a little city called Chatsworth near Northridge. I've already checked mapquest and stuff like that and can't find any kungfu schools less than an hour away...so I guess I'm just stuck...

edited: Also, all the other Hapkido and Karate places close to me aren't very proffesional. Seems like there just there to keep you occupied, and not to really teach you, so no on that stuff.




I found two potentials:

White Lotus Kung Fu Studio
19641 Parthenia St # 100
Northridge, CA 91324, USA
(818) 993-9664
whitelotuskungfu.com

Kung Fu Academy
Unverified listing -
18275 Parthenia St
Northridge, CA 91325, USA
(818) 407-1799
valleybest.com

Go check them both out if you are really interested.

EDIT - One more:

Self-Defense Systems
21704 Devonshire St # 139
Chatsworth, CA 91311, USA

dont give me that picking up a stick crap...what?? we're going to be attacked in the frigging bush?

yep! you bet!

try to think outside the square...

Anything that give you an edge over an attacker is better than using nothing.

I personally would prefer to be alive.
