Book (written in Dutch):
Bruce Lee’s fighting movies, in the beginning of the seventies caused a new rage. Gyms were overwhelmed with requests for eastern martial arts. Kung-fu became a household name next to more well-known sports like Judo, Karate and Taekwondo.
De Nunchaku vechtstokjes
For over ten years it was relatively quiet around the ‘fighting sticks of Bruce Lee’. Until in 1984 the foundation for a new martial art was created. The Dutchman Milco Lambrecht developed a special Nunchaku made out of a synthetic material and created an independent sport around it. The sport was called ‘Nunchaku-do’.
Milco Lamrecht has been promoting this dynamic martial art for over 25 years now. In 1987 he founded the Stichting Nunchaku Nederland (SNN) and in 1996 the World Nunchaku Association (WNA). IN the Netherlands the sport is affiliated with, and recognized by the NOC*NSF. Milco Lambrecht published a book about ‘Nunchaku-do’ in 1998. This book gives a clear picture of a sport that is made on eastern basis, but is a Dutch invention. The title of the book is: ‘Van een verboden wapen tot een erkende sport!’. Also available on the website.
