While on Jiu’s stay, his soldiers helped the farmers as the army, general and emperor were an occupant on their nearby territory for a short while (few months). When the emperor paid a visit to the soldiers to see if they were working well, he noticed farmers using nunchucks, he thought of using them in the battle against Mongolians.

The emperor borrowed the nunchucks and settled in his tent, after a few days he showed up with 18 unique techniques of usage.
