    Nunchucks

    Anybody know about Nunchucks?

    like a good site to get tutorial info, and a reliable online dealer?
    The only good thing about freezing beyond feeling in the final Nordic ski race was that I couldn't feel that tumble I did going about 30 mph, maybe more.
    On the other hand, not feeling any part of my body for 30 minutes was scary, especialy for my manhood.

    AFAIK, they are illegal in the states. They may not be, though. Best place to get them is join karate, i believe.

    Actually, they are illegal to wear on yourself. Many outfits have such items, although I doubt that a Border-Check would allow it through without a legitimate reason. In any case, somebody behind my house across the alley was playing with these 9 foot nunchucks and he was super fast at it, it was wonderful. Personally if you're purchasing it for defense, the best things to get are: Pepper Spray, 21 Inch Baton(Steel Shaft); Total Cost: Approx $200 CDN. So when the voilent, evil (and stupid) bastard approaches you, you take out your pepper spray, and when he starts to scream and tear at his face, you pull out your 21 Inch baton, shut the bastard up, put your baton away, and run away.

    You don't want a baton too long, such as 24 or 26 Inch as they restrict movement. If you get caught with one, even if its not cocealed, you will be charged, and your baton will be removed from your possession.

    However, if you purchase a dual-locking knife, and keep it slightly visible in your pocket you cannot be charged. Remember: Everything is a tool, until you use it in an unwarranted, illegal manner.

    Like most weapons, they aren't illegal in private. I don't believe you could walk down a street legally with nunchucks, unless you have a permit and it's a demonstration.

    A karate school is a good place to get them. They can order the stuff from catalogs if they don't have it. I'd give the name of a dealer if I could remember the company's name... century, maybe? I dunno...

    Don't attempt to learn nunchucks from a tutorial. It will result in a very painful experience. Take lessons if you wish, but before you do that, a general karate/martial arts background is advisable.

    The central concept behind this weapon is that you must always trust your weapon to go where you want it to. Do not shortcut your moves; doing so will result in some form of pain. A complete motion will ensure that the rod follows the path your arm gives it.

    And, for God's sake, buy plastic, padded ones!

    Yes, ours is. California has even banned assault rifles.

    I think that if everyone could carry whatever weapon they wanted, crime would be cut down.

    I just like nunchuks, and think they are cool, and want something other than computers and sports to do. Besides, there are other people in know who want to learn how to use them.

    in 48(im pretty sure) states its still legal to have an assault rifle....iff(like that math notation )it is fitted to be a semi automatic rifle ONLY. the military uses m16a2 which has semi auto and burst fire, the civilian model only has semi auto.

    if you go to google and look up gunlaws.com (or something like that) you can find all the laws in your state
    guns dont kill people, abortion clinics kill people.

    Or, you could get a friction baton which is obviously concealed. They are steel etc etc. Some 'popular' holiday resorts have them on open sale (in UK).

    Now, I would not know if they have super strength,nice grips,reliable action etc etc.

    Such is life.

    Have any of you ever heard of a class A license? These allow you to carry any gun (including automatics) concealed or not concealed (that's how it works in my state at least). However, to be able to get one, you have to be 21 and in some sort of armed forces/police.
