Police Department Training in the Use of Nunchucks

Here's Sgt. Casey Day showing how to use nunchucks to not only strike like Bruce Lee, but to restrain and control suspects without causing undue harm. He and his colleagues on the police department of Anderson, California hope to add it to their arsenal of non-lethal weapons. KRCR News reports:

He said they can be used to hit, strike, jab and take someone down. They can also be used as a restraint to lock someone's hand, elbow or ankle.

"These were kind of designed with a different goal in mind to be more of a control weapon, but like I said, it's not like we can't use these as an impact weapon," Day explained. "They work really good as an impact weapon, but we try to emphasis a control tool over impact."

Day stated he's replacing his baton with the nunchucks because they work well and are more universal.

Why nunchucks? They are hard to use and of limited utility. A truncheon, a retractable baton, or a PR24/Tonfa would be better. They are easier to use and master, and the cops can, and have, used it as a restraint device. Most police forces already train with these kinds of batons, so why even use nunchucks?

It's just crazy!
