Hello everyone! Its been a while! I have to confess I have barely picked up my nunchaku in recent months. As is often the way in life I have been distracted by other adventures. I recently realised that although there may be 120 or so video’s on one of my Youtube accounts they aren’t much use to the freechaku explorers without being in some kind of order. Not simply an order of difficulty but order of which tricks to study first to help with learning more complex (yet similar) tricks later. With this in mind I have been compiling and arranging all my clips of individual tricks into something of a course in the form of a Youtube playlist. At the time of posting 70 video’s make up The Guide, with a total running time of around 50 minutes. There are still around 40 more existing video’s to add and a long list of video’s to film and upload to fill the gaps I have spotted in the syllabus. Eventually ALL these video’s will be re-filmed in much better quality but for now, here it is:
The Guide: Freechaku – From beginner to infinity!
Feel free to contact me if you have any requests for tutorials on any of the tricks covered here.
an international home-based freestyle nunchaku video tournament
The Chuck Off, is a yearly competition(for 7 years now!!!), hosted by Freestyle Forum, were any freestyler can participate. This is a skill-based competition, so the focus will be there. Lets spin it on!!! C’mon!!

In order to be in this tournament, you need to have an account in www.freestyleforum.net (It’s free!), upload the video to the internet(youtube/vimeo), make a topic for your entry on submission board, put the youtube/vimeo link in the post, and of course, follow the rules.
All suggestions, corrections and comments are welcome, this is an open rules.
I’ll be posting up various Nunchaku tricks and combo’s, I’ll try to keep it original with stuff I haven’t seen anyone else do, or my own take on things I’ve seen elsewhere. My naming conventions for techniques vary a bit from Jose’s but that shouldn’t be too much of a problem. My main focus has been digit tricks for a long time and my ‘style’, if you want to call it that, mainly involves fitting extra tricks into gaps where other moves are about to end, merging them all into one long barrage. You’ll see what I mean later when I start talking about Spin/Aerial Hybrids and Intercepts. I hope you learn something or find some inspiration, either way find me on Facebook if you need me. S
