A set of nunchucks weighs what a pound at the most, a ball bat approx. 2 lbs. now using F=MA the simple equation that does not require the Calculus, you get maybe 500 psi from a chuck, baseball bat about 2200! To put this in perspective go to a ball field hit a baseball with a set of chucks then with a bat see which one goes the furthest. Now imagine this is your head. Plus you can control your shots better with a bat, aim better, more control of your weapon, etc. Sorry bud but you are :owneddanc in this arguement.
    Acutally your formula is wrong. And we are concerned with kinetic energy.

    KE=(1/2)(mass)(speed)^2

    Mass is cut in half. So now your basebal bat is no better than the chucks in mass. Speed is SQUARED!!!! That is some T3h D2@dly right there. Chucks will go about 2-3 times faster than the bat becuase they are lighter, and on the end of a flexible link.

    Just like bullets are more deadly than a bat. They have very small mass, but the speed is so high it goes right through you.

    This is the flaw of tai chi. It does slow movement attacks.

    ya know kikkoman, "escrima sticks" are supposed to simulate bladed weapons. They're not supposed to be weapons in and of themselves.

    Was it just theory or did you train against a resisting nunchuck fighter in an alive environment. You are falling into the same trap traditional martial artists did.

    Kata will not prepare you for a nunchuck fight.

    My Ironwood sticks disagree with you.

    Something tells me there isn't a 'dish towel' kata.

    I could be wrong though.
