• The Blocking hand folds on the hip opposite of the block.  The first block is always with the left arm.
  • Fold with the blocking hand across the body and with your fist sitting atop your other fist that is in a chambered position.  This is commonly known as a “cup and saucer”.
  • Block by bringing the hands together from across the body.  The previously chambered hand goes into a high block while the other arm goes into a Tosan like block out to the side of the head.  This forms a box around your head.  The fists face out towards the attacker.
  • The vertical arm now goes down to your side with the closed palm facing up.  The hand that was previously in a high block now sits on top of the other hand.
  • Repeat the movements above.
