Sunday, October 12, 2014, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm - Qinna (Chin Na)
Qinna is the Chinese art of “seize and control.” It is used to restrain opponents through techniques for locking joints or muscles and tendons by applying leverage and using pressure points. The techniques require very little force making them especially effective against larger and stronger opponents. In addition, the pressure of many techniques can be adjusted so that they can be used merely to control an opponent or to injure or disable them when necessary. The techniques can be used to defend against grabs, holds and chokes or used to immobilize, subdue, or control assailants. These are important skills for when you are in close contact with an opponent. These techniques are especially useful in law enforcement and other situations when you need to subdue an assailant without injuring them.
These workshops are suitable for all martial arts styles and all levels of experience, including beginners with no previous training. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from one of the best! Be sure to register in advance to reserve a spot as walk-in registrations are not guaranteed.
