PRESENT

 

 

The FNWC is an online video tournament, organized by the Freechaku Federation through freestyleforum.net

 

 

Nunchaku artists from around the world create three minute videos demonstrating their style, ability and artistry. The entries are seeded and then randomly drawn into the groups*. Members of the freestyleforum nunchaku community vote for their favorite videos, which progress into a video play-off to find our 2010 World Champion.

(*Number of groups will depend on the number of entries)

2010 will be the third year the Freestyle Nunchaku World Cup has taken place. With every tournament the bar has been raised, so please be ready to shows us at least your 110% in this competition!

The winner of each group progresses through.
