Nunchaku require control like any other weapon, except that it's a flail so the method of control is different. Don't mean to come on too strong but you can't disprove something on opinion, as someone will have an opposite view. I would never say it's the best melee weapon, just that it's my favorite (and my best as it's what I train in). Anyway, they are good for more than show. If you don't agree, that's the best part of being human. Thank you guys for your opinions though and I'm sorry if I missunderstood anyone or have been missunderstood. Just hate seeing something I'm passionate about shot down and tend to defend something that means a lot to me.
You gotta express what you're passionate about. And even if the whole world disagrees, at least by doing so we keep our integrity intact. I know I've been taken to task, yes right here on the Friendly Forum (shocking! ) for some particular view, or technique or other, which the majority considered 'unrealisitic' or promised 'wouldn't work'. Yet I've worked it/them over and over, so who's right? The most opinionated or well-read responder (read: loudest voice)? No. As you said, just different experiences. And as Sukerkin said, this is an opinion thread, so no wrong answers.
So I respect you for your stance, though I respectfuly disagree with your choice , and wish you continued success with the 'Chucks'. :asian:
