Chin Na (Qin Na) is one of the four major fighting categories in all Chinese martial styles. The four categories are: kicking (Ti), Striking (Da), Wrestling (Shuai), and Seize-Controlling (Na).

Joint lock Chin Na techniques can be effectively used against an opponents grabbing attacks as well as against wrestling. Pressing and striking Chin Na can be used to seal the opponents breathing, vein/artery, or Qi circulation, which can cause severe pain, numbness, unconsciousness, or even death.

Most of Chin Na can be learned easily and be adopted into any martial style. Chin Na has been known as the root of the Japanese arts of Jujitsu and Aikido, and practitioners can use the study of Chin Na to increase their understanding of the theory and principles of their own arts.

5 starsGood Foundational Work for Chin-Na, Paula Schultz (Amazon reviewer) March 2012

This book does a really good job of demonstrating different applications of force in locks and grappling. Good pictures and explanations make it easy enough to understand for beginners, while yielding unexpected insights to more advanced practitioners of any style. Highly recommended!

5 starsPerfection in an Instructor's guide, B. Zaman (Amazon reviewer) June 2008
I have been an instructor of kung fu for many years and this is one of the most valuable books I think any martial artist can own. It claims that it is an instructors guide, but it is sooo much more than that. All of my students are exposed to this book on a regular basis. The descriptions are flawless.
