Examples of nunchaku in a Sentence

  1. Kevin Orcutt:

    The nunchaku is a martial arts device or weapon that Bruce Lee demonstrated in many movies. That's not what I'm teaching here. The impact techniques are extremely simple, as in any baton user would be able to master those techniques, and they don't take long to teach, the remainder of the training is for the control applications, which the martial arts experts don't teach because they're not putting people in handcuffs.
