Let's get some chatter going on the site
There are no blocks in Karate... so what do you use Morote-uke for?
Myself... 2 particular waza/techniques. A) The primarily: as a parrying technique setting up an attack with the inner hand (example gyaku-zuki) or where applicable: after the parry.... using the lead hand (example: Oi-zuki)
B) Secondary : as a nage-waza (throwing technique) e.g. maneuvering the lead leg behind the opponent while parrying, then applying the block against the opponent's center/body thus toppling the opponent over my leg (i.e.breaking the opponent's root)
any other applications anyone would like to share?
