Neas;s statement.
You make as much sense as you always do what are you talking about?
Ok.
Perhaps you might like to give another use for soto -uke apart from being taught as a block?
And the money in this country is pound notes pal .

Neas's statement/question

Would you consider a head butt to be part of trad karate?
If so how is that a block?
If not what style of karate have you studied?

Please make your answers legible

Hi. What is wrong with what I have just written?
Perhaps from your extensive training you might like to also answer the given questions?

Or are you perhaps a keyboard warrior?

Karate is a fighting art although apart from some people what I see and read it has turned into a mockery by so called key board warriors. Then a person might ponder on the Karate bashers as they are called. So my friend how about you answer the questions?

The fact of the matter is that you ask others to provide legible answers when half of your posts on this site are so jumbled it is nearly impossible to understand you.

Maybe if you took the same responsibility you ask of others upon yourself you would be more warmly recieved.

No, I have not studied karate, so I cannot answer your questions as pertaining to that particular set of styles.

Be more respectful and you shall recieve the same in return.

PS-The monetary unit in the country phoenixsflame is posting from is dollars, pal.

I don't like that explanation.It makes it sound like a person should just block with force and that's the true meaning. Blocks are much more in my opinion,otherwise why the chamber?



Neasís commentís.
Brian can you explain in a bit more detail?

Neasís answer.


Most of my education(90%) was in Germany. In German. I read and write better German than English.
Although as you can see my English writing skills are improving? What has that got to do with respect.?
Alles Klar.?

Hopefully now we can get back to the question I posted?

Danke.

Neasís Answer.
ďThe pot quoting the kettleĒ
Considering I am meant to be getting a hard time over my written English you could at least get your written English correct.

So do you have anything to say about Karate?

Ok, but you asked for it.

I was purposefully being short in my response, however I will lengthen this response in hopes that you can understand.

Quote:

Give me something harder. Soto-uke is a powerful arm break, its also an attack to the muscle of the bicep, or the neck, or any other side striking body part. You cross yourself with the Soto-Uke, the first hand crossing is the grab to control the initial attack. The "block" is the strike.

All blocks are Strikes.

Neas's statement/question

Head butts are apart of any martial art, its a last means effort. The best example of a "block" with a headbutt is a smother. If someone has you wrapped in their arms, you bress your head into their shoulder to arch your back and provide a small space for movement. If we're talking about blocking an attack with your forehead. A prime example would be if your arms were being held behind you. You can avoid and trap an attack with your jaw, although its not adviseable, its something that can be done.

All attacks are also blocks.



Quote:

So long as you make yours legible as well.

Please try to act with more respect, it doesn't befit martial artists to be unkind to each other. I think of those people here as my equals and betters, they are my peer's of the arts in which I love.

The Dojo-Kun spring to mind here... Something about respecting others? ;P
