Who doesn't know: A "soft" Nunchaku is made from plastik and wrapped in foam, connected with a cord - prepared in such way that
a) the cord will rip, when the force exceeds a certain limit
b) the nun-chak has a predetermined braking point
It's exclusively for training purposes - to hurt, or kill someone is nearly impossible (got one myself).
Allegedly it has now been ruled by a German court, that even soft nun-chaks are classified a "grade A dangerous weapon".
To carry one is a felony - NOT a misdemeanour/ regulatory offence!
Please be aware, when entering Germany: your nunchaks (no matter what kind) are illegal! If detected they will get confiscated and you will be charged!
I go with dream: the idiots are winning!
Currently there is some uprising in the martial arts scene, as I guess that the ban includes artists and martial arts masters. A petition is prepared and I will keep you posted, where to find the petition - in case you want to join... EDITED_BY: FireTom (1160985231)
