The most common version of the weapon. Traditionally, martial artists used wooden nunchucks to practice their fighting skills. However it’s the 21st century, which means safety comes first in everything even martial arts.

How to Fight with Nunchucks?
Having formal training is the best way to go. However, learning to use nunchucks is an enjoyable activity to pass the time, so it’s not necessary to be deeply committed to it. Now, let’s go over the most basic nunchaku techniques and tips you will need to practice your skills as a beginner. Assuming you have already bought a good weapon among the various nunchucks for sale in the market, we want you to perform the following steps:
1. Wear comfortable clothing: so your clothes don’t get in the way of your practice.
2. Find an empty room: in order to avoid breaking things in your surroundings or hurting yourself with the nunchaku sticks after it hits and rebounds from another object.
3. Start slowly: and twirl the nunchucks carefully until you get the hang of it. Once you have enough control try making a figure 8 with the martial arts weapon and start passing it from one hand to the other.
4. Try learning a few basic moves: like making the figure 8, resting your nunchaku within your armpit, making left and right strikes, and stopping it by wrapping it around your waist. You can even get some books for learning more basic and advanced techniques after becoming good with the ones we mentioned.
5. You can try making strikes: by hitting the nunchucks against another object. Getting a mannequin or protective gear will help you in the long run as it enables you to learn how to attack pressure points accurately. To strike you need to:
- Hold the weapon and put it under you arm
- Then grab the end you are holding and flip it outwards in the direction of the target
- You can try other ways to strike opponents as well
6. Keep practicing the basics and complex moves: because after a while you will have to learn advanced techniques anyway. You might just end up making a few new moves yourself, who knows!
7. Start using real nunchucks: made with wood, metal, acrylic, or other hard materials after you are well experienced handling the weapon. The sudden jump from one type of nunchaku to the other can be counter-productive. So, stick to one weapon until you are absolutely sure that you are ready to move to the next.
