    CLASSIC CHIN NA = (擒拿, pinyin: qn n; Wade-Giles: ch'in2 na2; Cantonese: khm nh) is a Chinese term describing techniques used in the Chinese martial arts that control or lock an opponent's joints or muscles/tendons so he cannot move, thus neutralizing the opponent's fighting ability. Also chin na su, (traditional Chinese: 術; pinyin: sh meaning technique) literally translates as technique of catching and locking in Chinese. Some schools simply use the word na to describe the techniques. The recent understanding that grappling is as important as striking has also caused some Chinese martial arts instructors to focus on their chin na techniques, even expanding the system by incorporating or developing new ones. This is one reason why the chin na of one school may differ from that of another. There are over 700 traditional techniques in the White Crane style of Chin Na alone and even more present in other styles. There are also countless techniques being developed/adopted into these styles, depending on the specific school.


    COMMENTARY: This is where the Japanese got their grappling arts from that formed the basis for Classical Jiu Jitsu that gave birth to Judo and Akido. (NOTE: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu's origin is Classical Judo. A Japanese Judoka went to Brazil. The Gracie, a Brazilian family of Scottish ancestry, showed him kindness. This Japanese gentleman taught this family Judo, and art that includes over 60 throws, chokes, suffocations, and ground fighting techniques. Since that time the Gracie family developed further techniques as counters to or in response to challenges and opportunities presented by opponents when fighting in ****e positions).

    Two New Navy Working Uniforms Announced
    Story Number: NNS100108-10 Release Date: 1/8/2010 4:42:00 PM

    Two new Navy Working Uniforms (NWU) will hit the fleet in fiscal year 2011.

    The first, NWU Type II, a desert digital camouflage uniform of four colors with the anchor, Constitution and eagle (ACE) logo embedded in the print, will be worn by special warfare operators and Sailors who support them during deployment and deployment training exercises.

    "The desert camouflage uniform is not going away," said Capt. Vince Drouillard, branch head within Navy's personnel, plans and policy division. "Sailors, other than Navy special warfare operators and supporting Sailors, will continue to wear the current tricolor desert camouflage utility uniform in desert environments when issued by authorizing commands."

    The second, NWU Type III, is a woodland digital camouflage uniform which also has four colors and the ACE logo embedded in the print. It will be the standard camouflage uniform worn in non-desert environments and stateside.

    Both uniforms, announced in NAVADMIN 374/09, are organizational clothing provided to Sailors by commands authorized to issue them.

    Very similar, but the colors are somewhat different. I have that shirt and seldom wear it because it is polyester and hot as hell.
