Bow and Beg for Forgiveness
Qinna Techniques - Bow and Beg for Forgiveness Step 1
Step 1. Your opponent grabs a hold of your right wrist from the top with his left hand (Figure 5-62). Circle your right hand counterclockwise, open your hand and press the tiger's mouth on his wrist (Figure 5-63). The tiger's mouth is the space between your thumb and index finger when they are stretched apart.

Step 2. Grab a hold of his wrist with your right hand, grab a hold of his right hand with your left hand, and press your armpit area down on his elbow (Figure 5-64). Pull his wrist and press down on his elbow with your armpit as you lower your body down (Figure 5-65).
A. The pressure is on your opponent's left elbow. By placing your arm pit directly on his elbow, you make his elbow the pivoting point of the arm, and make it bend in an unnatural direction. As you lower your body to exert pressure on his arm, make certain that his elbow continues to be the pivoting point by pulling your hands up and pushing his body down, creating pressure in opposite directions.
B. If you should over rotate his arm, the pressure may not be sufficient to control him. You need to maintain the pull by your hands and the push with your armpit in opposite directions. If you over rotate, you will have to change the direction of the pull and the pressure exerted by your armpit. You will have to exert your armpit pressure slightly back instead of down and pull his hand in the opposite direction to the pressure exerted by your armpit.
