Posted:Amazing like always rob! Now, i've just got to see that contact with fire! When did you make the transfer to short chain? What are the pros/cons of short chain over normal length?

Posted:i made the change to a shorter chain just before makeing this video infact most of the improvements between this and the chux off vid are due to chageing the chain lenght



pro of a short chain -

you can do fold up finishing moves (end of video)

faster

perform more consistantly (less wiggle)

easyer to do contacts with

easyer to do arials



cons of short chain -

takes afew hours practise with them to get used to the shorter chain and back to the level you were at with a longer chain (but its well worth it)

Posted:That was cool! loved it.
Having done a fare bit of nunchaku as a kid myself, I can asume you suffered more than a few head aches learning those moves! smile
Very inspirational.
