Nunchaku is a forbidden weapon?
I see it at some martial arts shops & seen people practising chinese martial arts with it before leh?
under SG law, there is a whole list of prohibited weapons: nanchuks, blades (above 3"), guns, pepper sprays, belt knife etc, the list goes on. if the items is concelable and deem dangerous, it will be confiscated.
unless u have a license for it in which case u probably have a purpose for it as well.
i am a blade collector and for every one i have to register my name with the SPF, the shop does it for me actually.
1. Any knife, sometimes known as a flick knife, which has a blade which opens automatically by hand pressure applied to a button, spring or other device in or attached to the handle of the knife.
2. Any knife, sometimes known as a gravity knife, which has a blade which is released from the handle or sheath thereof by the force of gravity or the application of centrifugal force and which, when released, is locked in place by means of a button, spring, lever or other device.
3. Any whip manufactured from bicycle or motor cycle chains or from any similar kind of chainwork.
4. All kinds of knuckledusters.
5. Any blade or other instrument attached to or forming part of a bicycle pump, metal-pipe or stick, and concealed therein, which is capable of being used for cutting or stabbing.
6. Any sword, machete or parang, axe, sickle, bearing scraper, spear, bayonet, iron rod, and the nancha-ku (segments of wood or metal joined by a chain, leather strap or cord).
I remembered bringing in a 6 feet blow-pipe through customs and was invited for coffee by the authorities.
My time was wearing those awful flat black china kung fu shoes for running now they wear way cool runners. What brand this time around I am wondering?
Getting back to topic. At the end of the day it is really about what you were caught using the nunchaku or whatever is deem usuable as a weapon. Having them on you at the wrong time, place or reason when you get spot check will land you in big trouble that is for sure. heheh.
