Chin na or Qinna (擒拿) is a set of joint lock techniques used in martial arts to control or lock an opponent’s joints or muscles/tendons so he cannot move, thus neutralizing the opponent’s fighting ability. Chin Na features both standing and ground-based grappling techniques, and almost all martial arts incorporate these types of methods. Learning Chin Na can deepen your understanding of judo and enhance your skills in any martial discipline.
