Learn fast and powerful joint locks to control any opponent.

Chin Na (Qin Na) means Seize and Control. This ancient Shaolin art is the study of controlling an opponent through joint locks and acupuncture cavities. Chin Na is part of almost all Chinese martial styles, and it can be a valuable addition to any other martial system.

This video is the first in Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming's extensive Chin Na video series, and provides an excellent overview to the art of Chin Na, beginning with the essential Chin Na speed and power fundamental training routines.

Dr. Yang and senior student Ramel Rones demonstrate over 125 Chin Na techniques and applications close up, in slow motion and at regular speed, showing subtle variations for these effective techniques, which are introduced in the following categories: Finger, Wrist, Elbow, Shoulder, Neck, Waist, Leg and Takedowns.

Easily integrated into any martial style, Chin Na is the root of the more modern grappling arts of Aikido and Hapkido, and it is often trained by military, security and law-enforcement personnel worldwide.

  • Fundamental Chin Na Speed and Power Training Routines.
  • Learn to control an opponent with a turn of the wrist.
  • Over 125 Chin Na techniques and applications.

Technique numbers in this DVD are the same as in the best-selling book "Analysis of Shaolin Chin Na 1st Edition" - Technique numbers do not match the 2nd Edition of the book.

5 starsAmazing, Tommy (Amazon reviewer) May, 2011

This DVD easily lives up to the high standards set by YMAA's other productions. This DVD coincides with Dr. Yang's book, of the same name, providing a visual demonstration of all the techniques shown in the book. The DVD covers training techniques, along with demonstrating dozens of chin-na for various parts of the body, including: fingers, arms, leg, and waist. It also includes several muscle grabbing techniques. All of the techniques are demonstrated at full speed, slow motion, and are broken down and explained step by step. I would certainly recommend this DVD to any practitioner of martial arts.

5 starsSeize and Control, Richard W. (Amazon reviewer) July, 2010
Chin Na means "seize and control" and is part of most Chinese martial arts. Many of the hidden techniques in the Taiji forms are actually Chin Na techniques.

This DVD is intended to be a companion to the book Analysis of Shaolin Chin NA. It demonstrates most of the techniques in the book. Each technique is shown in 1)slow motion 2)close up and 3)normal speed.

The video demonstration is great when you are reading the book since the techniques need to be seen and experienced to be understood.

You probably should watch the DVD with a remote control in one hand and the book in the other hand. Each technique references the book numberings.

5 stars5 of 5 stars, Great DVD, William Pitts (Amazon reviewer) March, 2007
Very learnable and easy to execute, especially if you have had prior training in joint-locking. I would highly recommend it in police or correctional use where use of force is limited and these locks if applied correctly can end a conflict quickly. I know by experience by using them in a correctional setting. One just has to pick out the techniques that are the easiest to execute and as all moves dictate, have to be in the right position to execute. And they have to be practiced religiously with your colleagues before you will become adept as all boxing or martial arts techniques are if one is honest with himself. There are no shortcuts in being able to execute any techniques. They must become instinctive and second-nature. But these are very good techniques.
