I have to agree with this assessment. With the bench, at least you have something to sit on.

Wrapped it around my own arm and once accidently smacked myself in the back with it. I ended up putting it in the same category as my crescent kick and said to hell with it.

If you don't have formal training with it I recommend you put in the closet, cause you will probably end up knocking yourself out. On second thought go for it!
Hey, I was actually damn good with 'em, and actually had some real training from BBT, but after almost smacking myself in the head, and twice lightly tapping myself in the nuts after it wrapped around, I said to hell with flexible weapons. I prefer rigid impact weapons, like a club, or a blade like a knife, sword, or machete. You don't have to worry about it coming back around at you.
When I worked at the local knife store parttime, all the idiots would always come in and ask for a nunchaku or 3SS demo. I would shake my head and tell them I prefered simple weapons; there's less to go wrong and the easier it is to use the better it is in combat. Then I'd take down the Escrima sticks and show off some sinawali and redonda. The moronic managers and owners couldn't get the steel telescoping batons to open, but I could snap 'em out with a quick abeneco.
isnt that what meat was said on Aqua Teen Hunger Force?

i think the crapest weapon ever would a gun that, for whatever reason, always screws up and shoots you in the face when you pull the trigger.
You should know that PHil Eatmore has taken a personal interest in this thread.
He's put it up on his forum and is busy defending the nunchakus. He's pretty nifty with them, apparently.
I'd love to run into phil in a self-defence situation. I'm pretty sure I could steal his wallet, punch him in the face and elbow his head off all in the time it takes him to choose whether to attack me with his small gun, his large gun, his small prodding stick thing, his flashlight, one of 3 knives concealed on his person AND a pair of nunchucks.
