Techniques>Blocks

↩ Back

A block is a technique used against an attacking weapon, such as an arm, leg, stick, etc, to deflect or stop the attack. A basic tenet of the martial arts is "no first strike." Martial arts are concerned about defense first and then about offense; therefore, blocks are of primary concern to martial artists.
