I did a quick searchbar look, didn't find anything useful.
Anyway, I wanted to learn some odd form of self defence, I've always though that nunchucks looked quite cool. Any tips?
Also theres a question of legality around actual nunchucks I think, so would you be actually allowed to carry them on your person?

Hand to hand combat forms are more useful...
Its unlikely you'll have a pair of nunchaku on hand while in a situation like that.

Yeah, that's why I asked. I think some types are legal, but it depends what they are.
Edit: It says that they may only be used on Private premises (crap) only can be on your person in public if they are being transported to another place. But then again, having a sword on you isn't exactly going to go unnoticed.

dude, even if you did get nunchucks and walked around with them, no one would think you were cool. they'd be like, "hey, look at the retard with the nunchucks." the only one who can make nunchucks cool is Will Ferrell.

just practice practice practice, take it slow then build up speed. get the cheap foam ones first to practice and when you get better get a metal or wooden one with chains.
my teacher, she is amazing at them and she keeps them on her at all times, its scary.

I have two pairs. Intense stuff if you dont know what you're doing. i suggest getting a trianing pair (the rubber/foam ones) if ou just wanna try it out, theres ons of vidoes, lots of routines too. helps if you know your khatas. theyre fun to use once you get the wieght and physics of it down. also, you need quite a bit of room to practise, youd be surprised at their range.

i carry mine, but i live in PA where they are legal. when you use them hold the about 2 inches from the top (the chain). youll have better control.

I didn't mean they were "cool" as in they gain you repute or whatever, I just thought that it would be something fun to be able to do.
Edit: I didn't actually know Buckethead did that until now 0o.

I call shenanigans.

My friend always drew his characters weilding sticks/staffs and you know why I thought it was lame? Becuase it reminded me of Donatello!

My school as well

They also felt it necessary to specifically disallow icepicks and "some rockets" (and yes, they did word it in that hilariously vague manner).

Just so I am not spamming, TS, I would have to agree with those in the thread that have suggested taking up a non weapon-based martial art. Personally, Judo is a favorite of mine, but there are quite a few to choose from.
I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are bruises from fighting. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

TS this is kind of true. Every time I see someone with them two things end up happening: 1) We laugh at him 2) he ends up hurting himself or some unlucky bastard he did not intend on hurting

If you want self defense you should take a class or learn a style(s) of martial arts.

if your getting nunchaku go for the ones that use ropes instead of chains chains get tangled in themselves
Dont use them if you are prone to flinching they will breeze [ast your face and you'll have to hit your own body to use the properly

Basic strike
1. Start with your right hand
2. Build up momentum by swinging them in a figure of eight motion
3. Swing out of the 8 motion to your left hooking your right hand under your left arm pit
(the nunchaku will also strike you on the back)
4.imidiatly swing your arm back to the right and recover into the figure eight motion

Upward strike (right hand)
1. Use the figure eight motion to build up momentum
2. In an upwards part of the loop folow through into an upwards swing
3. Bring your right hand to your right hand to your right shoulder
4. the Nunchaku will swing over your shoulder, trap it under your armpit in a catch

Actions taken from a catch
1. You can quickly use the cathc to launch a downward strike by swining your arm forward
2. You can change hands while the nunchaku is caught different actions can be taken here
A. Take the Nunchaku from under your arm with your left hand and preform a strike
B. Take the Nunchaku from under your arm with your left hand and start the figure eight mothion again

Well i know they are illegal in the UK unless you say you are going to the dojo, and even if you were to whip them out in a fight, a guy at my old jujitsu class used them on a punchbag or something and when he hit it they pinged back and hit him on the head, so they will cause more harm than good.

Kobutons or retractable batons are the way.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.
