I bought the Sony Bloggie camera to make the videos for the site, but now it’s dead.
I don’t know why, but it won’t start no matter what I do.
On February 1st I send it to sony, because I still have the warranty, and they told me that it would be okay on February 8th, and today, the 14th, the camera is still in “inspection”. I wanted to make lots of videos now, because I ended my thesis (and passed it 🙂 ), but with no camera, I can’t record anything.
I hope they will hurry up, and that it will be as good as it was before.
Have fun and keep chucking!
Esipking sent me a picture of the nunchaku he made, with the Magazine Nunchaku Tutorial.
If you wan’t to make your own magazine nunchaku, check the tutorial here: http://nunchakututorials.com/freechaku/how-to-make-nunchucks-anywhere-with-stuff-found-at-home/
I have finally changed the look of nunchakututorials.com, to this one!
The old look was a bit boring to read, so I hope you will like this look a lot more!
Also, the Freestyle Nunchaku Map is already open to everyone… so explore about freechaku! It’s still need some work, but the general picture of it will let you know the possibilities it has.

The rules are simple:
RULES FOR VIDEO ENTRY:
1. Video must not be longer than 3 minutes. ( + 3 second, for unexpected lengthening on uploading – there were many disappointments last year – so please follow).
2. Video must state clearly at the beginning:
– participant’s name or online username
– country or nation the participant wants to represent
– the name of the video (if not stated it will be referred to as ‘participant’s video’)
– optional to put www.freestyleforum.net and or FnF Logo: Black Red Yellow Blue Green
3. Video must not include footage that has been used in a previous freechaku federation competition.
4. The majority of the video must include nunchaku usage.
5. An option to protect your video, you can set your submitted video as [Private Access] during the submission dates but make sure you are available on the deadline. You have an option to upload your video to FnF Youtube account.
And that’s it, it’s that simple! Which means…
– Videos can be one uncut shot of a three minute performance, or they can be edited compilations of different performances.
– Video can use slow-motion to highlight difficult, fast moves
– Videos can use other video editing techniques for artistic effect
– Videos can include use of staffs, poi, swords and other props as long as the majority is nunchaku
– Videos can have stories
Check the new page: http://nunchakututorials.com/is-nunchaku-legal-in-my-country/, that show a list of countries and the legal state of the nunchaku. The list is incomplete, so if you know know a country’s law about nunchaku, please comment in the page.
If you have been training a lot to make one trick, and it doesn’t works, don’t do it for 2-3 days, and then try again…. it works very well!
Don’t freestyle in the rain, unless your chuck has a nice grip… if you do, the chances of a flying nunchaku are nearly 100%.
Always be safe and look around you for objects, animals and people that you may harm… choose areas were you may spin happy, and not with accidents.
Don’t practice barefoot… if the nunchaku fall on your foot, it will be a lot of pain, and even blood or broken bones! Always be careful were the nunchaku will land, and try to move your feet really fast.
Don’t practice near anything you don’t want broken. You never know when your nunchaku will go flying away, and it is not the wisest thing to test this near your computer, tv, window, etc.
