I've been playing around with the monkey fist now almost every day and I love it. The girlfriend loves it... less. Mostly because I keep swinging it around and practicing rope dart techniques in the kitchen... Currently haven't broken anything though so that's good Cheesy

LOL. I cannot be responsible for any romantic or anti-romantic consequences that may result from using a monkey’s fist in the kitchen Grin

I have found there’s just enough slack to launch the ball off an elbow or knee, but it may be a bit on the short side for some rope dart moves. I’m glad you’re enjoying it!

For what it’s worth, my wife says she agrees with your girlfriend  Tongue

I've just about got the hang of the elbow shots now. One shots are far harder. Still haven't broken anything Cheesy

One of the best free resources I’ve found is Phil Elmore’s book on practical nunchaku. The nunchucks motions are very similar to what you need to do with the monkeys fist, and it’s a pretty entertaining read:
