The Black 8 inch Nunchaku is a whole 4 inches shorter on each end than the standard 12” chucks, and has a ball bearing and chain fixing giving you a super smooth and fast action, when training with these Nunchaku. They are made from oak and painted black which makes them super durable and hard wearing. The 8 inch Nunchaku have grooves all the way down each chuck which not only looks good but is great for gripping the chucks and reducing the chances of them slipping out your hand.
So why would you want these 8 inch Nunchaku? Well, many people have their reasons for preferring these but it really comes down to personal preference. They like the feel the extra chain gives them and the lightweight feel. They do feel different from training with regular 12 inch Nunchaku. They feel faster and more 'whippy' it's a much more chaotic experience training with these 8 inch Nunchaku
The small size allows them to be carried around easily and fit into a small bag or pocket. However, at Enso, we don't recommend carrying them with you all the time as you maybe get into trouble for carrying a weapon. These Black 8 inch Nunchaku are great fun and a perfect addition to any Nunchaku collection, they expand your Nunchaku repertoire and get you used to and comfortable training with different type of Nunchaku.
“These are a great addition to your already existing Nunchaku collection. Once you’re used to the regular 12” varieties, these will give you a completely different feel. Most Nunchaku you find will be 12’ so get used to these first and then switch to the 8” for a bit of fun, to learn new tricks and appreciate the different feel they give you“

I bought some of the bigger nunchuku to get started as a lockdown project and really enjoyed it, so fancied trying the 8 inch version. They are great, whip about more so take a bit of getting used to , but a lot of fun to use and I can get more speed into the routines learned with the 12 inch nunchuku. Highly recommended
Great 8 insh nunchaku luv them prefer them to the 12 inch nunchaku great grip easy to use
I love these wooden black 8 inch Nunchaku and they are not easy to find in this style. I bought them and they turned up very quickly and were wrapped well. Many thanks! You will see me again :)
