Gedan Ude Uke

Lower Area Forearm Block:
In Yohon, this move is performed from Yoko Kiba Dachi. The move is simply to block the kicking leg with the forearm by keeping the arm straight and thrusting it far enough out to make contact with the leg before the leg contacts your body. Tate Ude Uke from Nihon Kumite Kata is a variation in understanding of this technique. Ude Uke always blocks with the forearm.
