There isn't an historical moment in which to trace the birth of the Qin na. It could be traced back to a struggle called Jiao Ti (or Ti Go) dating back to 2000 BC, a struggle based on joint locks and projections. In all probability, the quin na is formed over time by adding some specific techniques of struggle already present in previous martial arts and developing them in a comprehensive and effective style.


It seems that the qin na has influenced the creation of Ju Jitsu, and was known to the creator of the Tai Ji Quan (Chang San Feng). Become an integral part of the training of the imperial guard and police for its effectiveness, and was codified and developed by Master Tung Tsu Nee (1880-1971), which codified 72 basic techniques, divided into three branches (then become 5)


From the twentieth century, it spreads out from china, especially for police and military training, and modernizes.


Qinna (chin Na - Qin Na) means: grab and hold.

The Qin na can be considered one of the many styles of kung fu, but remains a style in itself, very special and with its peculiarities. It is based on combat at short distance, tended to immobilize the opponent and make it harmless (for this reason, many police forces and armies make use of Quinna techniques, in the training with bare hands) The main techniques are therefore grappling techniques and joint control, causing dislocations, joint locks, chokes, holding the muscles and tendons, and the pressure of the vital points.
is an art very interesting especially to integrate the study of other martial arts, especially wing chun and tai chi.


The techniques are divided into 5 branches.


FEN JIN - Divide the muscles
the initial branch studies the techniques of ripping the muscles and tendons of the opponent, or detach the tendons from the bone.


CUO GU - Move bones
the branch that studies the techniques of bone breaking, the disarticulation and locking techniques through joint locks.


BI QI - Press the breath
the branch that includes the techniques that prevent the opponent to breathe, causing fainting.


DIAN MAI - Press the veins and arteries
the branch that studies how to block or disturb the normal opponent's blood circulation, to create numbness of the limbs.


DIAN XUE - Press the cavities
The last branch is studies the alteration of the opponent's energy circulation and pain provocated by the pressure or percussion of some cavities (The acupuncture cavities are about 800, distributed along the eight vases and twelve energy channels of the human body, according to the theory of energy meridians of acupuncture).


The last two branches of Qin Na are better known with the name Dim Mak. Leaving aside legends and magical explanations, Dim mak is the technique of hitting big nerve points and weak points in general, obviously causing great damage without using great force.
