My Sensei often feels like kobudo kata don't get as much attention as karate kata when it comes to bunkai. Nunchaku, specifically, seems to be misunderstood quite often, so he wanted to share a disarming technique with them that comes from the kata, Tonaki no Nunchaku. I'm not really a "weapons guy," myself, but it seems to be a fairly rare kata. Even so, the technique works whether you know the kata or not. As with most kata applications, how the opponent attacks you isn't really that important. What is important is where you end up in relation to your opponent, and what points of contact are made with the opponent. We demonstrate the technique against a horizontal swing from a stick for simplicity, but you could find a wide variety of attacks that put you in essentially the same position with the same points of contact. I hope some of you find it useful!
