Hi! I’m Madison Warner and I’ve been teaching for over 10 years in Michael M. Foley system
of Koden Kan Karate-do. Today I’m going to be teaching you scooping block, okay we’re
going to start in the kiba dachi, some styles call this horse stance it’s all the same.
Really low stance, hands up, scooping block again is going to go out, it’s going to
cross your whole body, this is the block now if there was a kick coming in I’d hook it,
hook the foot in my leg and then throw and that’s just going to get the leg out of
your leg and maybe spin the person around and the throw goes to here, you’re going
to have your wrist bent and your fist in front of your shoulders then, okay and you’re
going to bring it out, turn your arm slightly because this is the stronger part of your
arm so you want to make contact with the strong part of your arm and you’re going to hook
your wrist and then throw. Let me show you one from the side…out, across, make sure
it’s away from your body here…you don’t want to bring it back this way because then
you’re not blocking anything, if it’s coming in you’re going to block your body,
hook and throw and that is scooping block.
