I think it would look cool to see the stick deflect attacks and the nunchacku will strike.
The stick is more effective and more adaptable IMO than the nunchaku, so I'd rather have two of them if I had to have a weapon in both hands.
I've never actually known a good chucka man. Known some really good stick men, though.
I would stick with two sticks. Preferably even one stick.
Shield and nunnies.
When did Catholic nuns enter this discussion? And why are they carrying shields?
because KUNG FU. Thats why.
you know when people say that if it doesnt exist on you tube. Then it doesn't exist.
There are Kung fu nuns on youtube.
Well played, sir.
Must rather have two sticks than a stick and nunchucku, or a stick and shield, stick and empty hand, etc.
I have far more techniques for empty hand than for stick, so I'd rather keep one hand empty. If I were well-trained in Kali, that would likely change.
I would see having trouble using both at the same time, anytime time either weapon crosses center line, too much potential for getting your weapons jammed up.
When I first pictured this, I imagined the stick being held back-handed against the forearm, to keep it out of the way. It would largely by only useful as a blocking device. Personally, I'd feel better-armed holding it fore-handed and throwing the nunchuku at the other guy really hard. If I'm lucky enought that the catches it and tries to use it, he's more likely to hit himself than me.
I got up and tested this a bit ago.
The nunchaku's striking angles are limited and awkward, coupled with the fact that you only have one hand to maneuvre it in the first place. I like to flip sticks from hand to hand on single stick, so it's even more awkward for the stick, and I need to treat it like a sabre/other pointy stabby weapon.
While I agree entirely with the premise that a stick and a nunchuck would not work as well, I think we should leave experimenting with it to someone who is an expert with both weapons. AFAIK, none of the active members on this forum would claim to be an expert with both weapons.
I'm an expert at hitting myself with one of them. Does that count?
As long as you are your own opponent, then yes.
I think that's a safe assumption most of the time.
I got a chuckle out of "other stabby weapon". Thanks.
Why not just use a three section staff?
Man. If you think a set of nun chucks is a weapon of self destruction. Then never wave around a three sectional staff.
I broke one on myself once.
