Low Block

Martial Arts Low Block

This page will show you how to do a martial arts low block. This block is also known as a downwards or down block. With a low block, martial arts students bring their arm down to block an opponent’s kick or to block a hand grab by an opponent. If swung hard enough, the block can also act as a strike against the opponent’s attacking leg or arm.
