Chin Na In Depth—Advanced Practical
Refine your Chin Na arsenal
In the Advanced Practical Chin Na DVD, Dr. Yang explains that for your Chin Na (Qin Na) to work in a real situation, you must master the technique so that it becomes an immediate natural reflex. In a self-defense or sparring situation, there is no time to think before you react, and your opponent will not cooperate with you. By choosing a small number of practical techniques and understanding their application completely, you will respond to an opponent with an effective Chin Na when the time comes.
In his extensive previous Chin Na DVD series, Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming has demonstrated Chin Na speed and power training, instructed over 150 techniques, and shown several hundred applications for every kind of situation. This program focuses on interception, trapping and sealing the opponent, and keeping a sense of distance to avoid a counterattack, while successfully executing the most practical Chin Na. Dr. Yang instructs each technique and shows corrections of common mistakes as students demonstrate.

Great techniques for the Advanced Student, John J. Romano "Mr. Rock" (Amazon reviewer) May, 2011
This dvd contains hours and hours of chin na techniques truly meant for those who have some prior knowledge of chin na. I found a lot of the techniques to be eye opening and challenging. If you can focus on this dvd and master the techniques contained then you will have a very solid chin na background. I highly recommend this dvd for any true martial arts student.All the Perks of Attending a Great Seminar--Right from Your Own Home!, Momotaro (Amazon reviewer) January, 2011
In my opinion, the best part of this video is that you get all the benefits of going to a Dr. Yang seminar without having to foot the travel bill. What's more, the DVD format allows you to go back and review whenever you require reference or clarification. In practice, I use this video as a reference for specific technique-related questions and the DVD copy of Analysis of Shaolin Chin Na as a visual training aid to accompany practice.Secrets Revealled...Finally(Amazon reviewer) November, 2010
As a long-time martial/combat artist, I can say that the only place I have ever had such a thorough course is during my in-person training from my long-time aikido sensei. In other words, it was like attending a course from an old friend and trusted mentor. Dr Yang's teaching method is practical and yet still casual and definitely approachable.
I also wanted to point out that Dr Yang also shows how these techniques can be used on individuals who are differently sized and even how to troubleshoot when things go wrong. This is an absolutely great DVD packed with enough information to take many months, if not years, to absorb and put into practice.
Definitely a "must buy!"
