Outside Wrist Pressing Block

( 바깥팔목 눌러막기 bakkatpalmok nulleo-makgi )

 

Share:

Difficulty Level:  Intermediate      Technique: Blocks ( 막기 makgi )

A closed fist may be brought down in a pressing motion to block the trunk and groin area. Using the outer wrist area to block the attack is called bakkat palmok ( 바깥팔목 ). The fist is raised up to shoulder height and thrust directly down to meet the attackers strike. The outer wrist to outer forearm area makes contact with the attacker’s forearm in case of a punch. This block will not damage the bones of the hands as there is no compression of the knuckles or metacarpals, and there is no leverage to bend the wrist.

Although simple, it requires a lot of partner training to get the timing of this Taekwondo block correct. Breath control is also important to relax the body when blocking; novice practitioners often waste significant energy because they are tense at inappropriate times.

Taekwondo Blocks ( 막기 makgi )

In martial arts, blocking is the act of stopping or deflecting an opponent's attack for the purpose of preventing injurious contact with the body. A block usually consists of placing a limb across the line of the attack. Blocks are considered by some to be the most direct and least subtle of defensive techniques. Other ways of avoiding attack include evasion, trapping, slipping and deflection of the oncoming attack; this approach is often referred to as the application of 'soft' techniques.
