Karate Block Uchi-Uke (or Inside Block)

This page will help you to learn the Karate Uchi-Uke Block (or Inside Block). This Karate block travels from the inside outwards whereas the Sote-Uke Block (or Outside Block) travels from the outside inwards.

The Uchi-Uke block is a very useful block. It can also be used as a strike because the martial artist is striking/hard blocking an opponent’s attacking arm. Karate blocks are used in self-defense, Karate katas, Karate kihon, etc.
