How to Do Upper Blocks in Karate

Upper Blocks

Step 1: Proper stance
When in starting formation, squeeze into your center and block up rotating your hip to ready a counterattack.

Step 2: Avoid swinging
Avoid a swinging motion–you want to send your blocking arm up and not around.

Step 3: Parrying on the defensive
Use that same squeezing motion from your center to parry back and forth when on the defensive.
