What is Nunchaku Sports ?

Nunchaku sports is a semi-contact martial art, which focuses exclusively on a centuries-old weapon, the nunchaku, made famous by the legendary Bruce Lee through his films. The modern-day incarnation of Nunchaku i.e. the official WNA Safety Nunchaku, makes it possible for two fighters to safely and legally compete each other in the match which is the most popular discipline of Nunchaku sports, i.e. KUMITE and other disciplines are KATA, FREESTYLE, and JUTSU played Individually & as well as in Team, in all age groups, male and female. The Nunchaku-do system offers competitions, graduations (5th to the 1st kyu, black belt and further) and training courses. 


A semi-contact fight between two participants, who can earn points by attempting to hit each other. Keep in mind that all practitioners work with the safety nunchaku and wear protective gear (helmet and toque), allowing fighters to give it their all without compromising on safety. The kumite system is physically enduring, as nunchaku-do is one of the fastest sports in the world to spectators and practitioners. Rules dictate that the nunchaku has to keep turning during the match, which guarantees that the most skilled opponent wins. For an impression on kumite, watch the video below!


Kata, the Japanese word for “form”, refers to a detailed choreographed pattern of martial arts movements. Katas are completed individual or in a team (synchronized) in front of a judge, who grades the kata based on technique, pace, power and more. A kata performed properly demands both physical as mental control. The Nunchaku-do system has described fourteen (14) katas in detail, offering our practitioners endless possibilities for self-improvement.


Probably the best-known discipline worldwide. Freestyle is not bound by rules – but rather offers practitioners the opportunity to demonstrate their creativity, technique and flow. Whilst every discipline has the possibility to mesmerize an audience, freestyle is definitely the show-discipline. The WNA has some of the best freestylers worldwide ready to teach and inspire, and offers a diverse platform for personal growth and competition.


Where kumite-fighters are bound by rules to guarantee safety and sportsmanship, the jutsu discipline revolves around efficiency and realism, whilst teaching our advanced students to defend themselves in real-life situations. Demonstrating your skills in nunchaku jutsu is required to obtain our highest graduations, but the moves are also used during demonstrations. As with all disciplines; the WNA teachings on nunchaku jutsu are safe for all practitioners.
