Mawashi Uke

Roundhouse Block:
Both hands are used in this block. The first hand actually blocks the attack by coming straight across the body from the outside in and striking the attacking arm teisho. The other hand then comes under the blocking hand also in teisho. While the blocking hand returns slightly to the body, the other hand raises and clears the attacking arm. Both hand turn back so that the palms face the blocker, and then turn forward and straight up and down.
