Hello, everyone!

This week on Waza Wednesday, we switched gears a bit and took a look at one of the more esoteric weapons of Okinawan kobudo--the san-setsu-chaku (three section flail). It's similar to the nunchaku, which more people are familiar with, but since it's much less common, we wanted to highlight it for people.

Love it!! Both the video as well as the Kobudo weapon; one of my most favorite!! As Sensei Pouge has effectively shown both the weapon, as well as it's endless versatility, one can only wonder why they've not ever seen it before.

It's similarity to the three sectional staff is where the similarities end. It's the effectiveness within close range that puts it, imho, above the three sectional staff, which, is more useful outside of the close range.

An old adage..."Dynamite comes in small packages!!", and this jewel of a Okinawan Kobudo packs one heck of a bang.

Thanks for sharing the video with us!!

I like it. I've never seen that weapon before.
