CLOSE-BODY FIGHTING AND RAPID PUNCHES

chin na

Close-Body Tiger Claws can be very formidable if you apply them skillfully

“Close-Body Tiger Claws” is an effective chin-na technique for close-body fighting. It is important that you cover your opponent effective when applying this technique. Of course, there are many counters too.

Many martial artists find it difficult to defend against a series of fast punches. Applying chin-na is an excellent way to counter rapid punches. “Lohan Embraces Buddha” shown here is just one example.
