Nunchaku Basic Striking Tutorial – Part 2 – Combat Stance


bjbjBrBr If you want to develop an effective
strike with the nunchuks, first you have to start with your foundation, and that’s the
combat ready stance or posture. There are a couple of very popular combat postures for
the nunchuks. First is the over the shoulder posture. Next is the underarm posture. While
both of these are really popular, they’re not the most efficient or effective. Let’s
take a look at a more practical combat ready posture. Most martial arts styles teach a
wide, deep stance when using the chuks. This is completely unnecessary and counterproductive.
The nunchuks are a weapon of speed and precision, not a weapon of brute force or strength. For
this reason, we’re going to assume a more upright, relaxed, and mobile stance so we
can move more quickly and easily. Once you’ve got that, we’re going to hold the chuks with
both hands. We’re going to aim the front stick at our opponent. We’re going to keep the back
section in line with the front, our palm up, and a slight tension on the string or chain.
In a later video, I’m going to talk more about the role that the back hand or off hand plays.
Next, we want to relax our shoulders and arms and have a slight feeling of floating upwards.
We want to avoid our elbows coming up too high or in too close unless, of course, that’s
what the situation calls for. Take some time to do some nice, gentle, basic strikes returning
to the combat ready posture as smoothly and naturally after each strike. Once you get
that down, you’ll have a stable, consistent, and practical platform to launch your strikes
from. Now please take a second to like or comment on this video. Then grab a pair of
chuks, find a mirror to stand in front of so you can see your stance, and practice.
