What he said. And an 'Ute Uke' is an outward block at about the same level. They can be used in combinations very effectively together.

ok! in your experience is that block functional, from what i picture i dont think it would work in a sparring scenario

Then I'm not explaining it well. Its a very basic block, and it works very well in sparring.

In boxing, when you have your guard up and a guy tries for a strike to the stomach, if you were "blocking" with your right arm, you would block/parry the strike by shifting your left hip back and thrusting your right inner forearm to make the block.
You waist would twist towars the left.
That is similar to the soto uke block.

I never gave Krav a bad review because it has a funny idea about how fighting works in alot of drills and concepts they give you. Repetition and perfecting technique would not be something I would give a bad score to. Krav has alot of it, though its usually against bags and hand pads. I think, with the amount of time I've spent doing martial arts, that I could judge how a style prepares you within 6 months. If you recall, I also broke the assesment into sections. Fitness, fight ability, self defense, mind set, whatever. If in six months you are not getting any results except a better LOOKING technique, then theres a problem.

BTW, I really DID like how you broke down your review. It was easy to read and covered a lot of ground. I was not criticizing your abilities or your ability to write. I was just pointing out that a nOOb at our place wouldn't really be able to appreciate the finer points of what we do, so a critique after six months wouldn't be conclusive.

If he is a casual, hobbist kind of practitioner (letīs say 3 two hours workouts), then a more focused style will yield better results, since, by doing a single kind of range, the practitioner will get better quicker, and he wonīt be as confused in a fight (heīll always try to take things to his preffered range).
However, for a serious, competing fighter, itīs vital to crosstrain. Bear in mind that a fighter will have to match up with other people who also crosstrain, so the lack of a range will result in a defeat. But the people who train to fight this way devote most of their time to train, something a casual practitioner will not do.Canuckyokushin:

THAT'S NOTHING, I USED TO KNOW SOME 12 YEAR-OLDS WHO COULD FIT INSIDE A SUITCASE AND STAY ALIVE FOR 7 OR WAS IT 6 HOURS
