About This Item
Chin Na (Qin Na) is the art of seizing and controlling an opponent. It is a fast, effective way to subdue an attacker using joint locks, cavity press, bone misplacement, muscle grabbing, and artery sealing. Taijiquan is a traditional martial art, and Chin Na is an important part of your complete Taiji (Tai Chi) training. Taiji Chin Na are smooth, flowing techniques that are simple to execute and difficult to escape.
Dr. Yang discusses, demonstrates, and teaches you his Chin Na techniques up-close and in detail. All these techniques are hidden inside the Yang style postures, but can be applied to all Taiji styles.
