||Qin Na (also Chin Na) is not really a martial art, but a grappling component of many Chinese Martial Arts. It is studied by many martial artists because it has not been watered down like many other grappling arts due to sport competition. Qin Na retains much of its "martial" character. Evident in this is the signature use of finger locks. This technique is not practiced by many of the other grappling arts because it is considered "unfair," a sport concept. But techniques such as these can be a tremendous equalizer for a smaller person. This may account for the growing interest in Qin Na.
