Nunchaku: The Complete Training Guide Book by Jiro Shiroma (Preowned)
When Japan invaded the Ryukyu Islands (Okinawa) in the 1600s, it confiscated the weapons of every inhabitant. All that remained for the people were farm implements and a wealth of martial arts knowledge. When the Okinawans discovered these tools could be used as extensions of their hands, a fearsome fighting style was born. One of the most feared weapons was the nunchaku, traditionally used to pound grain and other brush. But placed in the hands of a trained practitioner, the lightweight nunchaku became a symbol of speed and power. Nowhere can this be seen more clearly than through the eyes of Jiro Shiroma, unarguably one of the most talented and exciting weapons practitioners on the scene today.
