Master Scott: Welcome to BlackBeltSite.com, I'm Master Scott. Nunchaku or also referred to as nun chucks. When you practice these a couple of things to be aware of, first make sure you are in a area with plenty of space, both space around you and space above you. Once this start swinging and extended it's really easy to take out light, whether a tiny table or above you to put hole in the drive of various things, be very careful.
Also when you start these things can easily chip teeth, definitely leave some bruises, so take your time and practice safely. Not a bad idea to where mouth piece as well. Definitely when you are starting it here you'll take it slow, you can avoid these things. What we're going to start out is the basic grip. And you you're going to grab the chucks at just above half way down. As we work on some of the flips they might even be a little bit closure to the chain or rope, depending on the style you have.
The first thing you want to do is drop away back, and you want to be above shoulder width apart on either side. And I definitely recommend that you practice both sides evenly. What I'm going to show you next is the free-style.
Just a few things that you'll learn here at BlackBeltSite.com. Okay starting with the basics, what I want to do is drop one way back, and we're going to work on to figure 8, very simple holding one chuck and during a figure 8, no problem, keep your other arm in and switch feet, now it's the front leg. You want to make sure I'm practicing both. Also switch hands here, very important to switch feet. You wanted to good in both stances with both hands.
If you want to stay in one stance until you get better, that's fine as well. Very good, the basic figure 8. What we are going to do from here is the under arm catch. What you want to make sure I am doing here is come up, catch right underneath, just leave fall slowly each time. When you first start you might go too high and hit the back your own. Go too low, be careful and come up and hit you on the face. So let's begin just take your time and catch. Get comfortable adding that catch and then add speed as you feel more comfortable.
I'll go slowly once again so you can see, very good, just a couple of the basics here today, and then from here we're going to figure 8 and once you do that reverse and catch. So, we are doing the over figure 8, bring it down reverse, and then we're going to catch, then we are going to catch, catch.
Now instead of going underneath, here you're going to catch and just go right into the figure 8 here, and catch. Figure 8, bring it down and catch. Now even letting go on just top hand, figure 8 and catch very easy. And catch this side, I'll once again figure 8 here; it's really in that wrist movement there. Bring it down, and catch. Figure 8 over the top, brig it down, and catch.
Just a couple of the basics to get you started with your weapons training. Good Luck.
