This full color poster demonstrates 62 step by step practice moves with nunchaku. Excellent addition to your training room. Measures 20 in. x 28 in. Includes a red printed border which is not shown in the photo above.Nunchaku History:Although the certain origin of nunchaku is disputed, it is thought to come from China through the Japanese island of Okinawa. The Japanese word nunchaku itself comes from the Hokkien (Min Nan) word nng-chiat-kun(no-chiat kun). When viewed etymologically from its Okinawan roots, nun comes from the word for twin, and chaku from shaku, a unit of measurement. The popular belief is that the nunchaku was originally a short flail used to thresh rice or soybeans (that is, separate the grain from the husk). It is also possible that the weapon was developed in response to the moratorium on edged weaponry under the Satsuma daimyo after invading Okinawa in the 17th century, and that the weapon was most likely conceived and used exclusively for that end, as the configuration of actual flails and bits are unwieldy for use as a weapon. Also, peasant farmers were forbidden conventional weaponry such as arrows or blades so they improvised using only what they had available, farm tools such as the sickle. The modern weapon would be an ineffective flail. The nunchaku as a weapon has surged in popularity since martial artist Bruce Lee used it in his movies in the 1970s, and is also featured in multiple Japanese anime and manga series.

A good poster but a little bit rough around the edges and diffrent colors than the picture shows.
It is important to note that the poster pictured is NOT the actual poster. The moves are the same, but the real poster has a title header that reads "Basic Nunchaku Kata" and used many more colours than the thumbnail.That said, the poster is very good. The motion lines take a bit of thought to follow, but are intuitive and fairly easy once one looks at them closely. It is a rather large poster, measuring in the region of 2-3' tall and 3-4' wide, give or take. This makes it easy to read and follow at a distance as one would in a training room.Shipping was a bit of a low point, as the tube it was confined to was too small, and the folding opening damaged one end of the poster during removal. Unfortunate, but not deal breaking.Over all, a fantastic product with sub par shipping that is a great asset to any training room in which nunchaku will be used.
pretty cool, great price and looks good in my personal training room
