An Introduction to Seizing Techniques in Chen Style Taijiquan

Qinna translates as “seizing and catching” and is an inseparable part of Chen Taijiquan’s curriculum. Chen Taiji’s qinna is based on the principles of taiji and the so-called Thirteen Postures or arts of energy: meet, follow, push, press, pluck, adverse, elbow, lean, advance retreat, rightwards, leftwards, centering. Examples are demonstrated to show how such energies are unified in applications.
