Karate Blocks

Here is a list of the Karate blocks you will find in traditional Karate. These are from Karate-do, Shotokan, Kyokushin Kai, and Shito Ryu. Every time you execute a block the opposite arm goes into a chamber which is the same as executing a back elbow strike, this is a safety measure in the case an attacker comes from behind.


  • Always keep your back straight
  • You need to have a strong stance to provide you support
  • Use your Kiai to increase power on your blocks
