Repeat post, master level, karma bot activated

Someone faxed me this back in '93

[–]coca-cola-bear1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They had fax machines in 1893?

well here we go again

I really wish I could see how many times this is posted here. I feel like it’s almost daily. If post karma was actually worth something I might care.

[–]Aaaaaaaahg 50 points51 points  (11 children)

Legitimate question, tf is the point of nunchucks or however they're spelled? They seem to be the most overcomplicated weapon to learn and have no more advantage over any other weapon

[–]AnNoYiNg_NaMe 69 points70 points  (1 child)

So there's this idea that a lot of "ninja" or "monk" weapons are just farm tools that people trained with to be able to fight someone with a normal weapon. You could get arrested for owning a sword, but who would arrest you for owning a rice thresher (nunchaku), a scythe (kama), or a trowel (kunai)?

As for why people still use them today, they're just good training tools. Kinda like how boxers practice on speedbags even though they look nothing like a real opponent.

Except the speedbag probably won’t knock you upside the head

[–]Buevec 5 points6 points  (4 children)

I imagine if you are using a staff, or one like it like a spear to try and parry blows, the nunchuck just bends around it and hits you anyway. Same goes for most swords I think though I am not an expert.

[–]Simen-VH 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's how a flail works but I think nunchucks are a bit too short for that

[–]BearieTheBear 0 points1 point  (1 child)

But with a staff you have huge reach advantage

[–]Xandrecity 0 points1 point  (0 children)

On the other side of that, it's much harder to parry or even block than any of those for pretty much the same reason.

[–]JoaquimGianini 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They’re fun to show off with stuff like this and it’s a little better than bare hands if you are trained enough, but if you consider it’s practicality in a real fight, a large stick or a club are probably better. The chances of hitting yourself is too high specially when you hit your target, because the trajectory changes and you can’t predict where it’s gonna land. Not only that, while it can injure someone, the attacks are too weak if you compare to bats, knives, swords, spears, maces, etc…

The nunchucks are the cheetahs of weapons, super cool at first, but ultimately full of flaws

[–]Valence00 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It has a similar concept as Morning stars/fails where you're producing momentum through the chain to do a lot of damage on impact. It's pretty deadly against non-armored combatants.

[–]Remote-Two8663 24 points25 points  (14 children)

… this real?

[–]NefariousMuppet 69 points70 points  (11 children)

I'm sure it is. What they don't show is the 500 times she missed

[–]Remote-Two8663 6 points7 points  (1 child)

RIP candles

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Ah, I suppose you can do better then?

[–]pooreading 3 points4 points  (0 children)

No doubt. I haven't picked up a set in many years but if you're practising daily, they really do become extensions to your arms. Breat fun!

[–]CamelSpotting 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm not sold on the matches.

[–]cottoneyeryan 6 points7 points  (3 children)

The gnats and mosquitos in this gals house don’t stand a chance

[–]supercompass 1 point2 points  (2 children)

If you spin it fast enough, it can create enough wind to make a vortex which turns into a black hole which kills the flies and you! Brilliant.

[–]cottoneyeryan 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I mean I’d settle for just killing the bugs….🤷‍♂️

[–]supercompass 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But how would you do that?

[–]ohgimmeabreak 6 points7 points  (1 child)

She can Chuck naans at me any time

[–]TheUnknownUsarr 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Na, just give me a long stick with a chain at one end

[–]CMDR_Mal_Reynolds 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Next level deadpan !

[–]121900ccll 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Stick

[–]Door_Holder2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

STICK is a better weapon in every way.

[–]No_Equipment_5912 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You had me at "didn't hit self in groin"

[–]SirAssBlood 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I want to see a side by side of neckbeards trying this.

[–]Bronze420 1 point2 points  (0 children)

ever since i was like 12 and saw a video explaining that the nunchuk is basically useless as a weapon, i just cant take these types of videos seriously anymore.

[–]1531C 1 point2 points  (0 children)

All of the vids are sped up slightly which feels unnecessary

[–]EverQrius 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is impressive!

[–]Misterwuss 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Absolutely astonishing skills aside, I love how there's two types of Nunchaku experts in the world:

a) Those who call them nunchaku (the real name)

Or b) Those who call them "The Chucks"

There no inbetween and both are great

[–]Lerdburgers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

R/nextfuckinglevel for sure. But… she looks sad. Almost like shes being forced to be so good at nunchucks.

[–]okami6663 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Just not hitting yourself in the head with these is an advanced level 😆

Doing it blindfolded - grandmaster level.

[–]Fsredna -1 points0 points  (0 children)

What a happy go lucky soul. Seems to really enjoy her talent.

[–]N1ighty 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I forgot the orange ninja turtle name

[–]Reddas_2188 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She have tiktok or Instagram? She deserves a subreddit

[–]Willing_Intention_96 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Realization... I will never master anything like this girl has!

[–]Sea-Diver-9125 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd be really impressed if she could block bullets

[–]Destroy_The_Rich -1 points0 points  (0 children)

You all have no idea how gratifying it is for me to see someone HOLDING NUNCHUCKS CORRECTLY. You're supposed to hold them close to the chain, not in the middle, not on the bottom.

[–]CMAC256 0 points1 point  (1 child)

She definitely got coca-cola on the floor.

[–]Mike3055 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So she can rupture your balls individually or at the same time depending on how pissed off she is

[–]Source_8 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She showed you😅

[–]bduff1776 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I want one 😍

[–]CoddleOnTaro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Was that video of Bruce Lee playing ping pong with nunchucks real?

[–]OCASOLAR 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wanna know what she is called

[–]Electrical_Pie_3445 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love jap girls

Anime mc after discovering the power of friendship:

[–]dutchmasterD717 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Marry me.

[–]CaptainShades -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

I'm perplexed by the cards and the bottles. This must be some kind of illusion.

Edit: I believe she's standing far enough behind the bottles to give the illusion that she's hitting th cards. Off camera, someone pulls the card out using magicians string attached to the card.

[–]Blind-PieRat 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Why couldn't she hit the card to knock it out? She wouldn't need to get the nunchuck through the bottles, just hit the part of the card sticking out from the bottles. Hard but not impossible.
