Taiji Chin Na in Depth—The Seizing Art of Taijiquan
Control Any Opponent with Simple, Powerful Joint Locks
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.
DISC ONE: Course One: 19 techniques from the Eight Moving Patterns, and Clockwise Coiling in Crossed Pushing Hands.
Course Two: 16 techniques from the Eight Moving Patterns including Rotating Neutralizing, and Counterclockwise Coiling in Crossed Pushing Hands.
Course Three: 21 techniques from the Eight Moving Patterns, and Parallel Pushing Hands.
DISC TWO: Course Four: 10 techniques specifically for countering an opponent controlling your elbow in Pushing Hands.
Also includes a Bonus Video (with over 200 chapters!) with Dr. Yang demonstrating 80 Taiji Chin Na techniques in slow motion and at full speed, categorized by the Eight Basic Taiji Patterns (Eight Doors) and chin na found in pushing hands. These techniques can be found in the popular book Taiji Chin Na (YMAA).

Masterful Instruction for the Advance Student, D. Bennett (Amazon reviewer) February, 2010
As with all of the Dr. Yang Jwing-Ming's work that I have purchased or had the opportunity to preview, this is an excellent instruction video for the advanced martial arts student. Dr. Yang is able to present a depth of information without wasting words. So many martial arts' videos come across as a version of "Simon Says", but Dr. Yang takes time to explain the joint and body movements involved. I was particularly impressed with Dr. Yang's explanation of typical problems that students face; it made it feel more like actually being in a live class.The Most Practical DVD on the Subject, Gary Smythe (Amazon reviewer) July, 2009
This DVD is a very practical, informative guide to the practice of Chin Na, the grappling aspect of tai chi. The instructor exhaustively goes over each lock, showing many variations of the same lock, some his own. At the same time the viewer can see the concern he has for his students while he teaches. A special training tool for me was his demonstration of what NOT to do when performing the holds. If you have any interest in the subject, THIS is the DVD to get.An Exceptional Martial Arts Classroom on Your TV!, Keith V. Caswell "Darkknight" (Amazon reviewer) June, 2009
Exceptional!!!...Brilliant Instruction!!!...Dr. Yang is a Master Martial Artist and a Master Instructor! His instruction is wonderfully concise. His demonstration: clear and accurate. He conveys to you the perfected motion(the goal you want to achieve), while at the same time he is cognizant that there are students of various levels of experience watching this video.
This is not a polished studio production with fancy lighting and special effects (nor, any of that damnable Chinese guitar twanging away consistently in the back ground). This is a real time classroom atmosphere, and you are drawn in. Your attention captured, your mind focused on the lesson at hand.
