Mawashi Uke – Wheel Block

This is a very useful block mainly used against punches and pushes. It can also be used against certain kicks but you need to be familiar with it. Make sure your back is straight and your elbow stays in, your elbow has to be aligned to your rib cage. Here you have 2 videos, one which will show you the move and its motion and the second one a training drill you can work with a partner.
