QinNa (擒拿) or Chin Na is Chinese martial 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.
