Freaky! Re: Gripping.

Hi Sean,

Although practicing with the ken and jo will help strengthen your grip and develop your forearms, I've recently discovered another MA, that in my mind, complements Aikido well.

Shaolin Chin-Na, a seizing art that deals with controlling your opponent through grabbing. I've learnt some basic exercises, that are based on strengthening the forearms, wrist, grip, and finger manipulation.

hope this helps.
