Is there a stalemate in Chinese chess?

"Ideally you would want to get your opponent's general in a position where he has no way out. This is known as a checkmate. Players must also know that they are not allowed to maneuver more than three consecutive checks. If you can't secure a checkmate then the other way of winning is by securing a stalemate. In international chess a stalemate results in a draw. This is not the case with Chinese chess. If you can manage to block your opponent in such a manner that he has no legal move to maneuver then it is known as a stale mate and this is the alternative way to secure a win without having to checkmate your opponent's general." Therefore there is no stalemate for Chinese Chess!
