Make sure the forward-reverse switch is in the forward position. Grasp the outside of the chuck with your hand. Squeeze the trigger to turn on the motor and see the motor torque working against your grasp can break it loose.

You might have to open the case of the saw and pull out the shaft connected to the chuck. Grab the end of the shaft in a vise and then you can put your full body weight on the chuck, without the shaft turning. If the parts won't fit in a vise you could try grabbing them with a pair of visegrips held in a vise. Just make sure that nothing important gets bent or dinged to the point of interfering with use. ie don't grab gears in the vise. It will destroy them.
