Nunchaku (ヌンチャク,), martial arts weapon of kobudo (沖縄古武道), can be found at the Arizona School of Traditional Karate. No, we do not sell martial arts equipment, we teach traditional martial arts. Classes in this Okinawa weapon are taught at the Arizona School of Traditional Okinawa Martial Arts at the border of Chandler with Gilbert & Mesa Arizona on Kobudo nights at the dojo (martial arts school).
Members of the Mesa Karate club (dojo - 道場) and association (Kai) learn to use the nunchaku, not like a twirlers baton seen in many schools where a martial artist is more of a danger to oneself than to others, but instead, students at the Arizona School of Traditional Karate learn to use this classical kobudo tool as it was intended: a weapon of self-defense.
Seiyo No Shorin-Ryu Karate Kobudo Kai members can receive certification in this martial arts weapon after about a year of training where they learn kihon (基本) (basic blocks, strikes, stances, chokes), several kata (型) (forms) along with bunkai (分解) (practical applications) and kumite (組手) (sparring). One must also come into the dojo with the proper spirit of learning 'Self-Defense' rather than 'Self-Offense', if they want to learn.
