We'll be having a nunchaku seminar on Saturday, April 18th at 12:15 p.m. after our normal Saturday classes.
A lot of people, when they think of Bruce Lee, think of his iconic usage of the nunchaku. Their prominent role in several of his films made them a cultural symbol for martial arts. While it's unlikely most people have a pair of nunchaku lying around, or would carry them as an EDC self-defense tool, they do still have practical applications in self-defense. Beyond that, training in the less practical but exciting looking techniques commonly featured in films greatly improves hand-eye coordination and improves dual-handed dexterity - skills that transfer strongly into all other aspects of martial arts.
The seminar will be two hours long with the first hour covering basic striking and handling of the nunchaku including spins, passes and other movements. The second hour will cover practical applications and defense techniques such as targeted striking, locks, and takedowns. Whether you're most interested in the more flashy and theatrical spins or more technical aspects that could be applied in real world self-defense situations, there will be something for everyone.
The cost for registration for the seminar is $20 due by April 11th. If you refer a friend to sign up for the seminar from outside of the school, both your and their registration fee is discounted to $15. If you register before the 11th and refer someone who signs up after you have, we'll refund that $5 discount for you.
In addition to the two hours of instruction in the seminar, students also get a free pair of foam ball-bearing nunchaku to train with in the seminar and at home.
