"3 Reasons Why You Should Learn Chin Na"
When I first started learning martial arts, I was 19 years old and I have to admit I was a little turned off when my instructor started to teach me a Chin Na technique. I was young of course, and I wanted to know how to hit. I wanted to punch and kick, not work on wrist locks.
That is of course until my instructor called me up to demonstrate the technique. He called me to the front, He said "Kevin, grab me, however you want."
So I reached out and grabbed his shirt and pulled as I started to punch him. Before I even realized it he had performed an outside wristlock on me and I was on the floor staring up at the ceiling.
Chin Na Kung Fu or Qin Na joint locking techniques like the one you see in the video are useful for all martial artists. These are grappling techniques similar to Japanese Jujitsu Techniques. What's really great about this type of training is that you do not need to be physically conditioned to apply them, it only requires coordination. When you get good at Chin Na, no one will be able to grab a hold of you without being countered.
A great read on the subject Can be found in Dr. Yang, Jwing Ming's book Shaolin Chin Na
"First, the movements of Chin Na require skill but not brute strength."
Skill can always be developed through practice. Strength is something that is helpful but not required.
These Grappling techniques are used to subdue the enemy with skillful movements and ingenious exertion of power.
The basic idea of Chin Na Kung Fu is to capture and seize the enemy's limbs giving the practitioner total control over of the opponents body.
Chin Na uses the principles of leverage and body alignment to overcome a physically stronger opponent. Chin Na techniques also involve the study and use of pressure points to enhance the efficiency of the leverage techniques applied by the practitioner.
"Second, Chin Na allows for the option of controlling and disabling opponents without causing serious harm."
It is a compassionate martial art. Because of its origin in Buddhism, it allows the possibility of defeating an attacker without seriously harming him or her.
"Third, it provides real-life, usable, legal self-defense."
Almost all of the self defense situation I have ever been in has had a portion where the opponent at some time in the fight has grabbed a hold of me. If I only possessed Chin Na skill back then I could have defended myself a lot more efficiently.
"Chin Na does not take years to learn."
Because the system relies on principles of leverage, all of the techniques can be learned with just a few tries and the practitioner can develop their own techniques based on their own way of applying.
Chin Na or Chinese Grappling can fit into any martial arts system. The act of controlling and outwitting adversaries leads to greater confidence. It encourages you to face adversity with the belief that you can overcome it.
You can enroll now into the Chin Na grappling class, It's is open to all prospective students and you do not need to have any prior experience in order to join. In fact, we specialize in teaching beginners.

Here's the story:
When I was a teenager, I started training in the martial arts. At that time in my life, I was getting into a LOT of trouble. I was hanging out with the wrong crowd.
But wait, it didn't stop there..
I was staying out late without calling. I was basically a juvenile delinquent. I was a parent's worst nightmare.
Astonishing, isn't it?
Suffice to say I owe my parents a BIG apology!
Anyway, I personally wasn't looking for any of the benefits that the martial arts had to offer.
I just thought it was the coolest thing in the world to be able to actually learn this stuff. It wasn't until I started to progress in the martial arts that I became aware of all of the benefits that martial arts classes had to offer.
My name is Kevin Kawada and my wife’s name is Renee Kawada.
The positive impact that martial arts training had on my life was remarkable.
Because of this, we decided to open our own martial arts school in March of 2004, and made a promise to improve the lives of all our students. We want students to get fit and build up their self confidence the life transforming experience that is martial arts.
