Nunchaku is a tool used by some Okinawan farmers that was converted into a weapon of self-defense following the ban of bladed weapons on Okinawa by King Shoshin in AD due to his concern over a possible revolt by the people. In the hands of an expert , it was a formable weapon, but in the hands of an amateur, it provided and still provides considerable entertainment.

Tsuki uchi with nunchuks thrust strike. Kobudo evolved from kobujutsu, a koryu old system that refers to ancient fighting methods of the Okinawan penchin and Japanese samurai. Many people better know these as martial arts weapons. Kobujutsu implies fighting techniques without esoteric value, whereas kobudo has esoteric philosophy. Thus bukido would imply some kind of esoteric influence. That esoteric value would manifest itself in kata.

But it is important to understand there is a difference. Both may use the same techniques, but it is in how they employ those techniques that makes a difference. Kobudo uses techniques in kata and emphasizes philosophy and self-improvement of the person and spirit. This emphasizes respect for one another and provides an unspoken contract that we will humble ourselves to learn from our Sensei martial arts teacher. As budoka practitioners of the martial way we must always be aware that the opposite can happen.

If you were to train in a dojo martial arts school that emphasized negative thoughts, these would sooner or later manifest themselves as negative affirmations in your subconscious. Even though it was just a movie, this is what we saw in the first Karate Kid. In Seiyo Kai , this type of activity would get you expelled from our association and lead you down a path that ultimately could end up in your incarceration. This is the one quality anyone should investigate in any dojo prior to training — find out about the philosophy of the dojo and Sensei.

This was why Gichin Funakoshi and other Okinawan karate masters of the 20th century so strongly objected to the Japanese turning karate into sport : it provided a strong negative overtone by focusing on winning and attacking, rather than its real purpose — to make us better people.

But the old ancient fighting systems bujutsu had a different concept behind them, they were designed for one thing, and one thing only: to defeat your enemy on a battlefield — no philosophy required. Ancient bujutsu taught practitioners to attack and kill with little regard to human life.

But with evolution of bujutsu to budo, things changed dramatically. To be sure you find a school and instructor with good credentials and a good reputation, we always recommend that you simply type in the name of the martial arts school or the name of the instructor and do a quick websites on Bing and Google.

Remember, there is a very high percentage of schools with instructors that have no evidence of proper certification let alone any certification other than what they purchased on the internet. But just the opposite will also be found. Many good instructors that have evidence of certification and lineage. For example, we do not have to practice martial arts to go to heaven nor we do not have to practice martial arts to be a good person.

It teaches us valuable lessons in building affirmations or goal setting. By following a martial arts path, one can improve no matter what their beliefs or practices. The majority of our students worldwide are Christians as is our Soke Grandmaster , but our association also has a large number of Mormons, along with some Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims and agnostics.

Through martial arts, we build positive relationships. There is another important characteristic of budo that people miss. Budo requires a lifetime commitment. No matter how long you train, there is always more to learn in martial arts. If you earn a black belt, it means nothing if you do not continue to practice. It would be like earning a college degree in engineering and then going to work as a shoe salesman. You may have an engineering degree, but you would really be a shoe salesman rather than an engineer.

This resulted karate kata affiliated with distinct villages or styles, while kobudo kata either bared the name of a person who developed the kata or the name of the village where it was created.

One of the kobudo tools or martial arts weapons that remain a mystery is the nunchuku also spelled nanchaku and nunchaku and known to many Westerners as nunchuks or numchuks. Its place of origin and how it was developed is a matter of controversy.

Did it originate in China or some other southeast Asian country and was later introduced to Okinawa: or was it weapon indigenous to Okinawa? Actually there are several possibilities that include: 1 Chinese weapon, 2 threshing flail, 3 cart rail, and 4 horse bridle. Even the word nunchuku.

Nunchaku : The Complete Guide by Jiro Shiroma (1989, Paperback)

Nunchaku Buying Guide Nunchaku Buying Guide Part of a long-standing fighting tradition, nunchaku are tools used in karate and other martial arts of Okinawan origin. They are often the first martial arts weapons that people see and learn about, having been exposed to a mass global audience by Bruce Lee. These tools, which consist of two solid stick handles of varying lengths connected by a chain known as the kusari or a rope known as the himo, are used to develop quicker hand movements and improve posture. These weapons require great care and knowledge, as they can spin at extremely high speeds. Getting the Right Size One of the factors to consider when picking out nunchaku is the length of the connecting rope, chain, or cord. This part should never be longer than the width of your palm in order to protect your own safety. Find the proper length by dangling the nunchaku from your wrist with your palm face down.
