Crushing in Hands 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 battle against 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 the movie Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might, Great Ape Gohan uses this technique on Goku with one hand after both had fallen into groundwater. He releases Goku from the hold when Icarus appears. In Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug, Great Namek Lord Slug uses this technique on Goku after catching him with Mystic Attack. He uses it again shortly later, on Piccolo.
In Dragon Ball GT, Luud uses this method of torture against Goku. Later, Golden Great Ape Baby Vegeta uses this technique in an attempt to crush Super Saiyan 4 Goku. The technique is also used by Staff Officer Black controlling his giant Battle Jacket to destroy Android 8 in Dragon Ball: The Path to Power.
