chin na

"Bail Moon from Sea Bottom" is a deadly chin-na technique against kicks

Some martial artists say that it is difficult enough to strike a person, applying chin-na techniques, which are more difficult than striking, is impossible. This statement clearly shows that they have no exposure to chin-na. When a chin-na master wants to apply a certain chin-na technique on you, he is almost certain to succeed — unless, of course, you are very skillful in the counters.

In most of the chin-na combat sequences, participants apply the same chin-na attack again and again on an opponent who countered prior similar attacks on him. These successive same attacks also enable the participants learn how to counter them at three different points of time, namely at the end-point of the attack, as the attack is in process, and at the initial point.
