Things I Think Are Cool: Nunchuks

I myself was a student of the martial arts, and in my younger days I tried to learn to use nunchuks. The weapon proved a harsh mistress. It requires not only a great deal of dexterity, but a degree of quick thinking and forethought. You see, nunchuks recoil. So not only do you have to concentrate on hitting your opponent, but you have to be prepared for the weapon to bounce back and have a move in mind for the next swing. It proved too much for me, and so I concentrated my efforts on the samurai sword. And then later on trying to find a girlfriend. I met with varying degrees of success on both counts, but I’ve always kind of wanted to take another crack at the nunchuks.
