Other than running away, how would the trained martial artist deal with the thret of Nunchuka? Is there an effective defence against this weapon?

Please post your views.

I can think of several:

*Baseball bat in the hands of a good stick man.
*A Sig-Sauer 9mm handgun is my personal fave.
*OC spray is also a good bet since it's hard to fight someone you can't see!
*Running from someone wishing to use weapons instead of a good "old-fashioned" fist fight is also noteworthy.

Those are just a few of my favorites!

Well you have two options really as i see it. One is get a weapon of your own to counter it. Two is take a hit somewhere that you dont mind a big bruise (hopefuly nothing worse) such as your arm and then shove the rice flails up the attackers' arse. To be honest most people wont use them that effectively, they will just swing with it in big old strokes.

I think they were semi-joking. (As in, they like the firearms, but prolly wouldn't walk around looking for ppl with nunchuka to shoot). [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/wink.gif[/IMG]

conventional blocking against a nunchaku is probably the stpuidest thing you can do, as a nunchaku, because of the swinging/whipping motion, multiplies the force it hits with by hundreds of times.

You get nunchaku pulled on you? either find a weapon,

or run the f*ck AWAY
