    He's quite good! I'd love to see him really push.

    Damien Romero is absolutely the best at manipulating the nunchaku I've ever witnessed in person or through any other means. If you want to see what he's capable of, load this video and skip to 5:00:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iutRUh9Id0o

    Note the dissimilar arcs and speeds he creates when he picks up two nunchakus.

    (Not trying to steal your thunder, threadstarter, but I had to post it since I know the guy.)

    That was funny. I just want to see that little bunny go up against the punching dummy. He looked awful tough.

    Wow, these vids were pretty cool... now I'm inspired to practice with the nunchaku again. Once upon a time I was pretty decent with the 'chucks... but that was back when i was 19. I'd probably klunk myself on the head or in the family jewels if I tried some of that stuff now, hahaha.

    Back when I started learning them I wore my cup and my Motorcycle helmet while practicing. I just can't count how many times I heard or felt a clunk. And was so relieved no to feel that excruciating pain or momentary loss of conciousness.

    Having watched Damien Romero for countless hours over a 25 year period I can only say he is the best I have ever seen. He would come over to our school and work all night filming different sequences with the Chucks., His mood would change with the music played and the whole sequence would change. We had many all night sessions and got them all on tape. You have to actually see him in action to believe it. Glad he is now doing well in the Los Angeles area and getting the exposure he deserves.

    Jdinca,

    The guy in the pink pajamas is known for his Pink Gi. He has also starred in countless films as always the "Bad Guy". He is about one of the only ones tough enough to wear a pink Gi and get away with it. His long career is a martial arts legend. He has also helped many young martial artist on their way to fame. A great Guy JUDO GENE LABELL YOU WOULD LIKE HIM.

    I am Most respectfully,
    Sifuroy

    I've worked with Damien Romero, probably more than anyone. I have to concur, after more years than I can rightly remember, and countless hours, working with Damien...(sometimes passing out on the Dojo Floor while Damien did his thing until the sun rose) and if he wasn't swinging or manipulating some object or weapon, he was watching videos of either himself or others swinging whatever he could find footage of...contrasting, comparing and criticizing the techniques and performances in minute detail...then he was working out new techniques in his head. It's true. He is without peer when handling nunchaku. He always impresses with greater versatility, precision and raw screaming speed than anyone I have seen in my 30 plus years of martial arts. He's no one-trick pony either. He is nearly as adept with almost any type of martial weapon you could name. His approach is unique and he was heavily influenced by a die-hard kenpoist (myself) forcing him to explore the practical application of his mastery of weapons theory. Mr Romero is also my co-conspirator on the development our approach to weaponry. He's one of those guys, you really just hafta see to believe. The videos don't do justice. They don't show he's using heavy hard rock maple & chain nunchucks. Most folk assume ultra light weight, "non-chucks" but this is not the case.The thing to watch for is his unique Conservation of Energy, when his nunchaku changes direction, there is no reduction of speed or power. Watch the complexity of his signature, and how infrequently patterns repeat themselves. Watch the precision modulation of speed, rhythm and power. There are a host of mediocre quality videos of Damien Romero posted on youtube, so you can get quite a sampling if you're interested. I believe he also has a Demonstration Video available that is considerably more impressive than the short low rez youtube videos. (I heard a rumor that it might even contain a cameo appearance by some DangeRuss character) If you are interested in seeing what can be done with the nunchaku, take the time to peek at a couple of these samples on youtube. (PS this dude hangs with EP jr and teaches at Brian Hawkin's Kenpo school's/camps as well as runnin' with Gene Labell, (Who according to SGM Parker was one of the few men to ever humble the late Bruce Lee)...so I guess what I'm sayin' is...go out and claim him as kin now, because this is one of those guys people will still talk about years from now. See if you can detect any kenpo influences in what he does.

    my instructor told me it's illegal to have nunchukas here in massachusettes, but i see alot of kids from the age 8 and up from tea-kwon-do schools carring them around in the streets.

    It is illegal in Many states to carry Nunchucks. In California you would be arrested for practicing in the Park with them and it is a felony. You can carry them only Back and forth to the Dojo and you better be able to prove you are a martial artist and not a street Punk. Speaking from a friends experience
    There. He had to spend over $5000 to get out of it. and he was a legitamate Martial Artist. Some Cops get over Zealous.
