Default nunchucks

I want to animate a character using nunchucks... how would I set up the nunchucks? is there a dynamics set I need to use so that the nunchucks swing and move correctly? or is this going to be a piece-by-piece keyframe nightmare?

A chain melscript might work... but nunchucks need to be able to swing from both handles... so a join chain would have to work both ways.

Scott, you need to post the animation you're doing in class.

Nunchukas, originally a Chinese rice flair, are a martial arts weapon. They are two wooden cylinders held together with string or chain. There used to kick ass
