3 Reasons Why You Should Learn Chin Na
As I look back, when I first started learning martial arts, I was 19 years old. I have to admit, I was a little turned off when my instructor started to teach me a Chin Na technique.
Back then, I didn't think learning Chin Na was important. As I look back, I was young of course, and I wanted to know how to hit.
Also, I wanted to punch and kick. Therefore, not wanting to work on wrist locks.
However, that is of course until my instructor called me up to demonstrate the technique. Immediately after calling my name, I headed to the front of the class. He said, "Kevin, grab me, however you want." Without thinking, I decided to grab his shirt.
With a firm grip, I reached out and grabbed his shirt. I began pulling and I started to punch him. However, before I even realized it, he had performed an outside wrist lock on me and I was on the floor staring up at the ceiling. At that moment, I couldn't believe I was on the floor. Astonishingly, it caught me by surprise.
Chin Na Kung Fu or Qin Na joint locking techniques like the one you see in the video are useful for all martial artists. Similarily, 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. As a result, 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
One must remember, skill can always be developed through practice. However, strength is something that is helpful but not required.
Also, these Grappling techniques are used to subdue the enemy with skillful movements and ingenious exertion of power.
Basically, the 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.
As a matter of fact, Chin Na uses the principles of leverage and body alignment to overcome a physically stronger opponent. Therefore, 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
Generally speaking, Chin Na 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, Chin Na Kung Fu Provides Real-Life, Usable, Legal Self-Defense
Honestly, 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.
As I think about the past, 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
To sum up, the Chin Na 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.
Therefore, Chin Na or Chinese Grappling can fit into any martial arts system. One must remember, the act of controlling and outwitting adversaries leads to greater confidence. As a result, it encourages you to face adversity with the belief that you can overcome it.
