Ever messed with nunchaku? I have. They're heavy rods whipping around on chains. If you get hit on the way in, you're most likely in a lot of trouble.

This is reasonable.

"which are illegal here so i am not the least bit worried about it"

That's just plain stupid. Many things are illegal but they're still around. Carrying guns is illegal here in the US, do you know how many illegal guns are on the street!!

Actually, John, you may want to check the concealed carry laws in your state and city. Chances are, its perfectly legal to carry a concealed weapon with a permit, and unless you live in California, New york, or Missouri (GRRR!) it's probably not to difficult to get that license if you are a law abiding citizen. However, this doesn;t keep any criminals from doing as you say.

How likely do u guys think that you will EVER get the chance to defend against nunchaku in a real street situation? Just think about that one.

If thats your arguement Mikelw, what are the odds we'll ever have to defend ourselves on the street ina situation where we cant run away? If this is the case why both training in the MA at all?

Just because we not be in the situation doesnt mean our hypothetical reaciton should not be considered and trained for.

Hey Mike

I agree. I think the chances of having to defend against a nunchuku in the street are slim.
However ignoring that they exist on the basis that they are illegal is wrong.

You will note however that I did agree that the training against them should not necessarily be specific. Just treat it as another medium range weapon.

To Jamoni.
I used the gun as an example for the americans on the site. (Maybe a bad example)
In the UK it is illegal to carry a gun, knife, etc. That doesn't mean they don't exist on the street.

Hope that's a better example.

Defenses against numb-chucks:
1. Run away.
2. Shoot him.
3. Throw rocks or garbage cans.
4. Hit him with a two by four.
5. Hit him with a car.
6. Use a shield.
7. Wear a riot helmet, kevlar vest, and arm guards. EVERYWHERE.
8. Sic a pack of wild dingoes on him.
9. Use a hostage as a human shield.
10. Mace him.
11. lure him into a VERY small room.
12. Throw a net over him.
13. Call the nuthouse on your cell phone and tell them you've found their escaped prisoner.
