This book is an excellent source for students who have never held Nunchaku. (Though I do recommend having an instructor teach you the basics). A great value when I bought it in 1971. This takes you through the basics but one must proceed with caution. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0897500067, Paperback)

In this classic text, martial arts icon Fumio Demura demonstrates with hundreds of detailed photographs and illustrations the fluid striking, blocking, twisting, and pinching techniques of this simple but versatile weapon. He delves into the nunchaku's history, explores its complex relationship with karate, and explains how to care for the weapon. No study of karate would be complete without nunchaku training, and no karate should be without this must-have manual.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:03:43 -0400)

Students are instructed in the use of the nunchaku. Topics covered include basic gripping, postures, warm-ups, strikes, catching, swings, blocking, kata, and application.
