During early 1975, Ed Parker Sr. undertook to complete another masterful work on a specific Martial Arts topic--the Nunchaku. Made famous by the late Bruce Lee in the motion picture "Enter the Dragon" and often referred to as "chucks" or "Karate sticks", Ed shared a history of this man made weapon, for the first time. Acknowledged by the Martial arts weapons expert Tadashi Yamashita, as the "best book on the subject, it should be on the bookshelf of every Karateka." Curtis Wong, publisher of the internationally acclaimed "Inside Kung-Fu" Magazine said it was "a must for all practitioners." After a brief introductory history of the nunchaku, Ed elaborated on the need for modern day adaptations of this ancient agricultural implement. Revealing for the first time, his own dynamic nunchaku techniques, with catches and movements capable of creating one startling impact after another. Fantastic Kenpo innovations were illustrated using extensive charts, diagrams, illustrations and hundreds of step by step photographic sequences. Ed executed practical self defense techniques against a multitude of unarmed and armed attacks. It is interesting to note that on the inside cover of this work, Ed is shown in a drawing by his brother, David Parker, wearing a Ninth Degree Belt. However, on the following page, it is stated that Ed is a Tenth Degree Black Belt. The reason is, that at the time of writing this innovative book, Ed was a Ninth Degree Black Belt. As a result of this masterfully exhaustive, inclusive treatise, Ed saw fit to take the recommendations of his senior Black Belts and accepted the honor and status of Senior Grandmaster of Kenpo. It seemed an almost fitting tribute that the February 1975 issue of Black Belt magazine wrote, "Many Kenpo stylists refer to Ed Parker as the last word on the proper way to do their techniques."
