"A nunchaku is two sections of wood connected by a cord or chain, though variants may include additional sections of wood and chain. The ideal length of each piece should be long enough to protect the forearm when held in a high grip near the top of the shaft.

The nunchaku is claimed to be a very effective close-range weapon by its proponents. When used in combat, the nunchaku provides the obvious advantage of an increase in the reach of one's strike. Somewhat difficult to control, the rope or chain joint of the nunchaku adds the benefit of striking from unexpected angles. Practitioners of the flashier styles contend that the motion of the nunchaku is often found distracting by opponents, who may have trouble keeping up with the nunchaku's rapid movement. In addition, the reach of the nunchaku is often underestimated, even by those experienced with its use." - from Wikipedia.
