A couple years back JediRich bought me my first pair of nunchucks. I thought it was a little nutty of him at first. I did not think this was something I was going to enjoy as much as I do. I tend to be negative about new ideas. I’m working on not saying No to everything.
JediRich bought me the nunchucks and I resisted for a bit. Finally he started picking them up and he was really good. I thought that looks like fun, so of course now I want to use them once I saw him do it. I am a little sister so I have a tendency to want to follow JediRich’s lead. Once I tried them I was hooked.
We have purchased so many different types of nunchucks now. We have 2 bamboo ones, 2 black rubber ones, 4 practice plastics ones, 2 light up ones, and one made of rataan wood. We have become what we would like to call nunchuck enthusiasts.
We enjoy watching all the old martial arts movies about Sonny Chiba and Bruce Lee. Those two men are the epitome of how the force can flow through an individual. The way that Bruce Lee moves his nunchucks and body can only be explained and be possible because of the force. He is a master of the force. We should all strive to even have a minuscule amount of force knowledge as Bruce Lee.
We as Jedi strive to become masters of the force. There have been several of these past Jedi Masters who where able to document their martial arts journey on film. If you have any doubt or confusion of what the force is, then swing around some nunchucks and you will feel it.
Nunchucks are one of the easiest ways to feel the force flow through you. Swing a pair of nunchucks around and then stop and you will feel the force transferring through your whole body. They are a complete mind and body exercise. You burn a ton of calories, because so much focus is required to keep them in motion and not hit yourself.
One of the most beautiful things about nunchucks is that they are a weapon of massive training. In order to ever use these as a weapon you have to train for a long time. In that long time you are going to hurt and injury yourself more than you could ever dream. This weapon requires you to beat the hell out of yourself before the Universe will ever allow you to use this weapon for protection.
People that are interested in learning nunchucks are people that are interested in learning about how to use the force of the Universe. These are not the same people that are interested in destroying the Universe. That’s why people that are trained in nunchucks are not a threat to other citizens.
Nunchuck experts are not the problems in society. The mental and physical capacity to withstand the pain and training required to become a nunchucks expert will weed out the people that want to hurt people. Those people will not enjoy beating themselves up for years before they ever have the opportunity to hurt another person. See nunchucks already have a natural safety seal. It’s not for the pussies.
Nunchucks are a beautiful art form. People that are going around and hurting other people intentionally are not brave individuals. They would be the people that would choose a gun or a knife in a fight. They are not looking for an art form that takes years to master. This is why nunchucks are a weapon that should never be feared.
A master of this art respects his chucks. These become a piece of you. You would never attack someone out of the blue with nunchucks. That almost seems comical to me. It would be a tough defense, even if someone was attacked by another individual and and had their nunchucks on them. The chances of them having them in the exact location where they could be a useful defense would be rare. JediRich knows, he got attacked and couldn’t even get to his nunchucks in time. He was hit on the back of the head with a rock.
Nunchucks are about mastering this beautiful art that is all about the force flowing through you in a fluid movement. Hateful crimes is the opposite mentality of a nunchucker. You cannot pick up nunchucks and immediately hurt someone. You will end up hitting yourself in the head instead. Believe me, I’ve hit my head more times than I can count.
The reason why I bring this all up, is, they made nunchucks illegal in California. Even owning them in your home on the wall as a collector is considered felony possession. Let me say that again, even if you buy collectible nunchucks and put them on the wall you can go to prison for this in California. They arrested a film owner who had some old props and weapons from the films. He went to prison. This is absolutely insane to me.
Think about this, two sticks tied together in your possession, even hanging on your wall can send you to prison for felony possession. Folks, the ninny nanny patrol have taken it too far. They are claiming it is because some kids hurt themselves and the soccer mom PTA board voted to not let kids have anything that might give them a bruise or bump. God forbid, a child learn to be tough.
This is not right, and it is down right wrong. Year after year we as Americans give away more of our rights. As Joe Strummer from The Clash says in “Know your rights”, “You Have The Right To Free Speech As Long As You're Not Dumb Enough To Actually Try It.” I really cannot day it any better than Joe right there.
We give away so many rights without even thinking twice. Every time we have any kind of tragedy, people line up to have more of our rights and freedoms taken away. The country has elected a President that wants to make this country a dictatorship. It appears everyday that he is getting closer to that. We give away a little bit of our freedom every time we make safety allow laws that say two pieces of wood tied together is a felony.
There was a time when people survived and figured things out on there own without laws and government. This is possible and is more possible now that we have the internet. We realize now that our federal government has no control. Their control is an elusion. If it wasn’t then why did 33 states violate the federal government and make weed legal.
Our government is all mirages, facades and illusions. There are about 20 people at the top that go back and forth arguing over greed to pretend to appease the people. We are in eight wars almost nine right now. We have been in solid wars for over 30 years now. There was not one moment in those 30 years that we were not sending out innocent 18 year olds to die for the Republican and Democratic Political greed.
There is no other reason we are still at war, except for greed. Our federal government creates a messed up socialism by entering the military. We are technically a democracy unless you are in the military. Then we are socialists, but our countries version of socialism is that you have to be willing to die for your country in order to get some food, shelter, free education and health and dental care.
Send your 18 year old off to war and if he lives then he can have free health care and money for education. I know this because I was one of those poor kids that the military seemed like a good option for education and hey our World Trade Center just got attacked, so who wouldn’t want to help support their country. Yes I was 17 years old. I signed up for the military 6 months after 9/11 and then I left for basic training September 24, 2002. A little over a year from the tragic event.
They used this event for years to pull at the heart strings of Americans. We all want to help and support each other. We do not like when other countries attack our land. But hey let’s step back Federal government. The reason we are attacked has never been unprovoked. We have been literally messing with and involving ourselves in things that have nothing to do with us for over 30 years. To be honest I’m surprised we have not been attacked more.
Oh everyone shrieks at that comment, because you know it’s the truth. The US Government are a bunch of greedy assholes that go over to other countries and rip off their oil and resources and claim we are keeping the world safe. 30 years of wars doesn’t feel very safe now does it.
