Nunchaku are steeped in history and hark back to a time of smashing rice kernels in Japanese fields. Nowadays they are a martial arts weapon used by many different styles. These Wood Octagonal Nunchaku are made in a super traditional style with an Octagonal shape and a cord to join them together. They look great and feel very different from nunchaku with chain
Made from Red Oak, the chucks are super hard wearing. The Octagonal Shape gives the Nunchaku loads of grip, even more so that the standard smooth round styles. They are the standard length of 12 inches, 25mm diameter at the rope end with the rope length of 10cm.
Rope Nunchaku like these Wooden Octagonal Nunchaku do tend to swing and move slower than their Ball bearing chain counterparts, but the rope does allow you to have more control in the air, dictating much more which direction it's going to go in. So not as flashy looking but much more control.
The cord rope is tied and glued into placed meaning for a much more secure fitting than if it was jut tied but in the event that it may break or wear out over time you are able to replace them and keep your Nunchaku practice going on and on.
“If you can, get a bit of sandpaper inside the Nunchaku where the rope is, occasionally you get burrs that wear out the rope. Sanding them off prolongs the life of your Nunchaku.“
Doug Swift - Owner of Enso Martial Arts
