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 deliver your counterattack.

Step 2: Avoid swinging
Avoid a swinging motion when blocking – you want to send your blocking arm up and not around. You also don’t want to show what you are doing or become predictable with your moves.

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