If the state you live in has declared nunchakus to be illegal, then why would you bother learning to use that weapon aside from keeping the art alive and perhaps working on your coordination? I live in California, so working with something like a cane, kubotan, or folding knife that I can actually carry with me seems the more practical choice. In addition, improvised weapons like brooms, umbrellas, rolled up magazines, flashlights, pens, etc. seem to fall more into the stick category than the "two sticks tied together with a chain or rope" category, so even if you are not carrying a weapon you would be more proficient in a pinch with one of these other things.
Just one man's opinion. The nunchakus are very powerful and I am in no way attempting to downplay their effectiveness as a weapon.
This would all depend on what you plan on doing with the weapon.
And your training with the weapon. For someone not so advanced I would recommend bo staff.
It's easier to start with and your less likely to hit yourself with it.Source(s): Train with both nunchaku and a bo staff.

I like the bo better but that is an opinion based on my experience and training

Depends, in close range nunchucks have the upper hand, in long range the bo staff has the upper hand, medium range either can have the upper hand

First you need the original weapon, a human brain. Then you can attach upgrades.

a weapon is only an extension of your body
until you learn to use it as part of your body and understand how it works both could be equally useless or usefulSource(s): 30yrs ma
I would say bo staff
