Crushing in Hands (握り潰し Nigiri Tsubushi) is a strength technique usually used by fighters bigger than their opponents.
The user grabs his opponent in a powerful hand grip and crushes his/her bones.
During the Attack of the Saiyans, Great Ape Vegeta, angry after Goku damages his eye during their fight in Gizard Wasteland, grabs Goku and starts to crush his bones. Goku is saved when Yajirobe cuts Vegeta's tail with his sword.
In Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might, Great Ape Gohan uses this technique on Goku during the battle against Turles after both he and his father had fallen into groundwater and he releases Goku from the hold only when Icarus appears.
In Dragon Ball Z: Wrath of the Dragon, Hirudegarn in his base form uses the technique on Gohan. Later, in his transformed state, he performs a similar technique to this with his tail, also against Gohan.
