Regulations set the framework for the fair and safe practice of nunchaku-do. Within the WNA, there are four sets of regulations, governing the black belt promotions, the competitive practice of nunchaku on the kumite, freestyle and kata disciplines, as well as behaviour at competitions in general.

The kumite rule book sets out the regulations for fighting.

The specifics for the grading of the competition kata’s and freestyle are described in the Kata Freestyle rulebook. These also contain the mandatory components to a freestyle.

The third rulebook refers to the black belt regulations. We recommend careful examination of this document before taking the exam.

Disciplinary actions are outlined in the disciplinary rulebook, which will be available in English shortly.
