Anyway, I used them, and mostly the padded ones for the simple fact I was a kung fu, ninja, Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris and many others fanatic. I was all about 5pm Kung Fu theatre on Satrudays and still miss it.
Anyway, the point is I didn't do them for protection, coordination, I just did them for I found them cool. Lucky for me the ones I owned (rope and chain) were padded for I can't tell you how many times I whacked my head and nuts. I actually got pretty good at it, but never good enough to take them to a fight.
In short, I would do it for pure enjoyment, and not do it thinking it will develop coordination and reasons such as that. Also, I can't express enough GET THE PADDED ONES!!!
