This probably won’t come as much of a shock, but we love learning about weapons. Not only how to make them ourselves, but how to (hopefully) use the real versions properly. Now, we don’t know if you, personally, will ever find yourself in a situation where you need to know how to dive into battle with a longsword, but knowing some quarterstaff basics or how to wield a dagger might prove useful when society collapses and things like guns and bullets aren’t exactly readily available.

But this time, instead of enlisting the help of someone who knows what they’re doing, we’re relying on the expertise of Sensei Jason to show us how to do a few things with nunchucks (or nunkachu). To be fair, we don’t cover the kinds of things that will turn you into Bruce Lee or this freaking guy, but it covers some basics that you can use to start practicing. Especially the part about getting a set of padded, practice ones first.

Sure, we’ve messed around with nunchucks before, and while they were a bit more effective than we had anticipated, they weren’t exactly the most reliable thing we’ve ever made. But these ... these are the real deal, as our poor, masked friend finds out at the end of the video.
