In most all cases nunchaku are permitted to be used in martial arts schools and to be studied by students in a responsible way under the instruction of a martial arts teacher. Like any weapon for example a gun, bat, taser, sword or knife, you must know your local laws as to how you can legally carry any weapon, including nunchaku.

The Nunchaku (Japanese: Hepburn: nunchaku, often "nunchuks" or "chainsticks" in English) is a traditional Okinawan nunchaku consisting of two sticks connected at one end with a short chain or rope. It was used by Okinawan nobles rather than rebelling peasants, but was not a popular since it was not efficient against widely used items of that time, and few techniques for its use exist. The two sections are commonly made out of wood, while the link is a cord, or sometimes a metal chain. The nunchaku is most widely used in martial arts such as Okinawan kobud; and karate, and makes for a good training , since it is allows for developing quicker hand movements and improves posture. Many varieties of it are available.
