Osae Uke

Osae Uke

This is a block for the middle section, it can be used against a few techniques depending on the angle, those could be a knee, a hook punch to the stomach and similar.

Osae Uke can also be used to stop an attacker to keep the distance, this will allow the defender to make room for a counter technique. It is important not to over extend your arm, but is important to keep all fingers together supporting each other.


  • Always keep your back straight with this block
  • Do not over extend your arm, you don’t want to hurt your elbow
