Product Description

Product Description

Refine your Chin Na arsenal In the Advanced Practical Chin Na DVD, Dr. Yang explains that for your Chin Na (Qin Na) to work in a real situation, you must master the technique so that it becomes an immediate natural reflex. In a self-defense or sparring situation, there is no time to think before you react, and your opponent will not cooperate with you. By choosing a small number of practical techniques and understanding their application completely, you will respond to an opponent with an effective Chin Na when the time comes. In his extensive previous Chin Na DVD series, Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming has demonstrated Chin Na speed and power training, instructed over 150 techniques, and shown several hundred applications for every kind of situation. This program focuses on interception, trapping and sealing the opponent, and keeping a sense of distance to avoid a counterattack, while successfully executing the most practical Chin Na. Dr. Yang instructs each technique and shows corrections of common mistakes as students demonstrate.

Top Customer Reviews

In the last decade, the traditional martial arts have realised the depth of grappling techniques contained in forms and kata, techniques that were, for many years, mistakenly considered to be a strange variety of punches, kicks and strikes.

Dr Yang's Advanced Chin Na gives a taster - albeit a sizeable one - of the depth of seizing, trapping, `sealing,' locking and throwing techniques in Chinese forms. He demonstrates 30 techniques with incredible names like `Butterfly Bores Through the Flowers', `Heavenly King Supports the Pagoda', `Spiritual Dragon Waves its Tail', and `Wild Chicken Breaks its Wing'. The names might sound fanciful, but the techniques are pragmatic and real.

Dr Yang takes us through a series of traps, locks, strangles and throws, but what makes this DVD a cut above the usual is the in-depth explanation that accompanies them. In these, Dr Yang considers the footwork and body-positioning required, the opponent's next attack, and how to maximise body-mechanics to make your technique more powerful.

Two of Dr Yang's students attempt each technique with varying degrees of success, which enables Dr Yang to highlight common mistakes and offer advice to correct them, adding yet another valuable layer of learning to the DVD.

Naturally, the techniques are taken from Chinese forms, notably southern White Crane, however the Chin Na on display also makes fascinating viewing for students of karate, especially those whose style contains a marked Chinese influence.

Beautiful, pragmatic techniques, masterfully shown and explained, Chin Na In Depth is a treasure trove of applications and principles on one DVD. Very highly recommended.
