Info about "Nunchaku kata video"
Nunchaku is a traditional Okinawan weapon consisting of two sticks connected at their ends with a short chain or rope. The Japanese word nunchaku is generally believed to derive from the Japanese pronunciation of the Chinese term for a two section staff.
Nunchaku are most commonly used in Okinawan Kobudo and Karate, but it is also used in Eskrima (accurately, the tabak-toyok, a similar though distinct Philippine weapon is used, as opposed to the Okinawan nunchaku), Taekwondo and Hapkido. Its application is different in each style. The traditional Okinawan forms use the sticks primarily to grip and lock. Filipino martial artists use it much the same way they would wield a stick, so striking is given precedence. Korean systems combine offensive and defensive moves so both locks and strikes are taught.
Nunchaku are usually wielded singly but they can also be paired. It can be whirled around, using its hardened handles for blunt force as well as wrapping its chain around an attacking weapon to immobilise or disarm the opponent. Nunchaku training has been noted to increase hand speed, correct posture, and condition the hands of the practitioner so it makes a useful training weapon.
