Karate Self-Defense Tips : Karate Lessons: Block Uppercuts


O.k., we’re going to go ahead and have Sari
hit me with some upper cuts. I’m going to go ahead and block them. Go ahead, Sari. Now,
rule of thumbs here. You can either A, stay where you’re at, take it or B, while you’re
getting hit, step back. There’s pros and cons. If you stay here while she’s hitting you,
you have the positive being that after she hits, you go ahead and get close in to a clinch.
The bad part is, if she’s faster than you are, she’ll hit and then you’ll be open when
you’re going in to a clinch and she will strike at you and do more damage than as if you just
step back, and then from there maybe go for a kick. So, depending on what you want to
risk. You want to go for a clinch, you might risk getting hit. If you step back, you could
go ahead and go for a strike, if she’s open . However, being far and away, also lets
her attack at you too. She can go ahead and strike you in the legs, or maybe bulrush you.
And that’s, bam. And that’s how you block an uppercut.

  1. A guy uses this against Mike Tyson and makes Tyson uppercut himself, so I guess theres efficiency to it xD
