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.

Not what I expected but are Great! Reviewed by Anthony Simon on May 04, 2018   5 out of 5

When I received these I was disappointed at first because they are hexagon and the picture showed round nunchaku by United Cutlery but, I see BUDK has changed the picture. After seeing that these are Quality Made and will last along time I went from disappointed to very pleased! Like I said they are quality made and the weight is perfect! I Highly Recommend Them. You might want to order two pair like I did because I am sure these will sell out fast! Thank You BUDK!

Very good nunchakus Reviewed by Areg Mikoyan on Mar 26, 2017   5 out of 5

good quality nunchakus, the chain is nice, good for training, also for real combat.

Very good for the price Reviewed by on Dec 30, 2016   5 out of 5

Good nunchaku for the price. I got the paired up deal though. They should bring that back. I am very skilled with nunchucks. This is everything you need. It is wood. The chain is good and average in length. The chain length is a preference. I prefer the ones with longer chains like 11 and 12 links. Bruce Lee would use 11 links(or the equivalent rope length) in his movies because he was too fast with short linked ones. But he shows that you can still go really fast with long chained nunhaku. These nunchaku are 7 links long(average) 12" sticks(average) Tapered sticks which is a good thing that you don't get too often in nunchucks

Love them excellent for the price. I have 3 other pair and I love these the best. My first pair with chain connection, the other 3 pairs are connected with a string. Love the chain pair the most and I use them more than the others.

battle tested Reviewed by Dave on Nov 21, 2014   5 out of 5

Ive had and used these for almost 20 years now, bought them when it was still a paper catalog. Glad to see they still are here, I still have mine and now my son is getting some too as he trains now. If you know how to use them, you probably know care and what to watch for, these have held up surprisingly well.

Great product. I've had these for several months, and they work great. The chain is a bit longer than most nunchucks, which makes it harder to swing, but gives it a longer reach and is awesome for working out. The chain is pretty tough. I've put it through severe stuff, even putting all my weight on the chain, and its still going strong. The only drawback is that since its painted black, it can get chipped really easily. So, if you want this to hang up and look good, get something else. But if you want a good workout weapon for a really low price, this is the thing for you!

Nice addition to my collection...

just really excited Reviewed by Devin Duvall on Aug 04, 2012   5 out of 5

I bought these out of all the other nunchucks on this site because they look like they can do some damage and not just nice to look at! I read a lot about different types of wood and rattan came up as being pretty strong. I might get the rattan pair too when these arrive. Oh and Bruce Lee is why I'm herrre! haha

Some nice chucks Reviewed by Mike Spirig on Jun 16, 2012   4 out of 5

Got these today and was thrilled, save for two things: They're much heavier than expected. Compared to the other foam nunchaku sold on this site they're considerably slower and hurt more XD. Also, strangely, there are three less grooves on one rod than the other.
