Uke Gata- Blocking


Uke Gata is blocking an attack.


When the strike is launched, do a Tai Sabaki (body evasion) by stepping 45 degrees back and to the side with one foot and following with the body. During this Tai Sabaki, you make a circling movement with the forward arm and hand, and right before hitting the arm or leg of the opponent, you make a solid fist right before impact. This is extremely impotant in ninjutsu, since most techniques are taught as counter- attacks that follow this. You hit the arm at the wrist, or right below or above the elbow.

 


1) Jodan Uke: High block, make a down-side-up circle.

-Uchi: Hit the inside of the arm.

-Soto: Hit the outside of the arm.

 


2)Chudan Uke: Middle block, make a down-side-up spiral.

-Uchi: Hit the inside of the arm.

-Soto: Hit the outside of the arm.

 


3)Gedan Uke:Low block, make side-down-side crescent.

-Uchi: Hit the inside of the arm.

-Soto: Hit the outside of the arm.

 


After you block, it is always a good idea to then grab the arm or leg that you just blocked, since this can lead to jutaijutsu techniques or you can simply pull them into your counterattack for more damage.
