Advice 2: How to make nunchaku
To make a nunchuck is pretty simple. This will require only simple handy tools and skilled hands. Self-made, they will be much cheaper than the store, besides it will be possible to adjust their size for your hand.
You will need
- Wallpaper or wooden sticks;
- - duct tape or Scotch tape;
- - the cord.
There are three types of nunchaku: light (for the development of reaction speed and learning new techniques), combat heavy (to increase strength and muscle development). Just think about what you need, but remember, heavy make only of wood, fighting a little easier, but they also can be made from wood.
Find the old and unnecessary roll of Wallpaper or a long wooden stick. Cord take with a diameter of about five to six millimeters. You will also need duct tape or Scotch tape. Cut the roll of Wallpaper (or stick) across so that the length of the resulting piece was equal to the length of your arm from mid-palm to elbow. You can make the handle longer, but making it shorter is not worth it.
Perfect size arms slightly longer than your forearm. As tight as you can roll both rolls of Wallpaper, they should be a tube with a diameter of three centimeters. Larger diameter suitable for combat nunchaku. Extra details cut and the ends and the middle and secure with duct tape to the rolls does not spill.
If you use wood, the diameter of this handle must also be equal to three inches. Clean the material from the bark and walk on the surface of the sandpaper, it is desirable that the tree was straight and smooth. Cover the handle with a protective lacquer on wood.
Step back from the edge of the arms about five-six inches, make a through hole with a drill. Pass the cord through this opening. The front ends of the arms tie a knot to secure the rope.
Between the handle should be the length of the cord to fit your palm. Over time the rope will stretch, so you can make the length 11-12 inches. The excess rope is cut. The ends of the cord tan so they don't spill. The handle is made from a roll of Wallpaper, fully tape.
