Inner forearm middle block for all white belts

Hi everyone

The inner forearm middle block is a required technique for white belt. It blocks an attack to the middle section, with the inner forearm.

  • the blocking arm crosses beneath the other arm
  • both palms face downward when crossing
  • cross with the tops of the fist at shoulder height
  • both hands twist during the block
  • the blocking hand finishes with the knuckles at shoulder height
  • the other hand pulls back to the hip
  • the blocking hand finishes in the line of the nipple, “chest line” – don’t block too wide!
