    Hola Barracuda:

    I found two meanings in the dictionary:


    1. loc. adv. Con los brazos solos, sin usar de armas.

    2. loc. adv. A viva fuerza, de poder a poder.

    I hope this helps.

    You meant, of course, the idiom:
    "to fight TOOTH and nail"

    Nail indicates in this context "one's fingernails".

    Best Regards,
    Dinis
