Perfect for Practice and Self Defense

I bought the 12" handle version last year, because it resembled 1 of my first 2 nunchakus, which I learned how to use during my years as a Taekwondo student, and a fan of Bruce Lee. Little did I know that Bruce Lee was taught by Filipino martial artist, Dan Inosanto, and was using the Filipino version known as the Tabak Toyok. Nevertheless, I was also a TMNT fan, and in the 1st movie the character Michelangelo used the same type of wooden Octagon Nunchaku's with a white nylon string. As for Century's version, despite being oak, they're very light, and smooth to use. However, because of their octagon shape, & the nunchaku's use of centrifugal force, I'm sure that they could also be used in a self defense situation. On top of that, the price is excellent, so I'm debating as to whether, or not, I should buy 14" handle version, or maybe 1 of the rattan/bamboo versions. So I gave this product 5 stars, & would recommend them to anyone that's learning how to use the nunchaku, or already knows how to use them.
