Morote Uke – Reinforced Block

Morote Uke

Morote Uke

This is Morote Uke, the reinforced block in Karate. It can be found in some Katas, this block is used against a middle punch attack.
Picture yourself doing Ude Uke then your opposite fist goes to support the blocking arm by the inner part of your elbow.

It is not recommended to use this block in street self defense techniques because you would be using both of your arms on one block while your neck and face are vulnerable.
