Joint lock

By Yossi Sheriff

A Joint lock (関節技 kansetsu-waza), (擒拿 Chin na, Qin na), (בריחים), is a martial arts technique that manipulates an opponent's joint and brings it to the limit of its natural range of motion.

A joint lock is called an arm lock if the affected joint is the fingers, the wrist, the elbow or the shoulder.

The joint lock is a technique that can help use a low level of violence and if need arises, cause devastating results to the joints or surrounding orthopedic anatomy.
