Kobudo Weaponry Volume 2: Nunchaku
It is commonly believed that Okinawan farming tools evolved into lethal weapons of self defense when the Satsuma samurai clan forbade the peasants from carrying arms.
An Okinawan nunchaku was typically constructed from two octagonal wooden handles linked together by horse hair. This weapon is believed to have been derived from a threshing flail, horse’s bit, or from a Chinese weapon.
