    I once managed ye olde "kick knife out of hand"-TKD-knife defense on a mugger. The follow-up reverse punch even dropped him. I left when the bystanders decided it was time for the traditional soccerfest.

        Also. Who were you fighting? rising block is a defence from an axe kick and/or a weapon attack.

          Must... resist... urge... to... [snap] for crying out fucking loud!!!! Neither of the two things you mentioned should ever be blocked with a rising forearm block. A weapon what the hell are you thinking! Blade, your about to bleed to death, blunt instrument, say hello to your newly broken limb.
          Please, please, tell me your being sarcastic.

            This is par for the course for him.

              With the "rising block", aka "high block, you should step inside and block the arm, not the weapon for blunt instruments.

              I suppose if your head is about to get cracked opened, taking it in the arm is better than taking it in the head if you can't move in time....but still....

                Still risky as hell, with a commited strike, chances are the weapon will simply wrap over and smack in you in the skull anyway.

                  The blocks are supposed to damage your opponent as well as stop the strike. So when you do the "rising block", or any block, your goal should be to hit the joints. The wrist should be what is hit with the block, or at least the upper forearm to stop the strike. From there you can attempt to control the weapon hand or do what ever.

                  In any case, "blunting" the force of the strike (hee hee) if it does wrap around is better than taking a full force strike.

                    I could be wrong, But I think even ATA TKD allows you to step out of the path of blunt objects.

                    I think only Shotokan requires you to get hit in the head by an overhand strike.

                      Not being in the path of the strike is best, but shit happens. I onced used a knifehand high block, "rising" block, against a guy grabbing at my hair when I was on my knees. Better to have the tool and not need it...

                          If it was anything like what you are thinking (you sick, dirty man), I simply would've bit it off instead using a block.

                              I was distracted one day walking through the tunnels of the local university, my sister came up to slap me in the face in a "sneak attack" . Did one of those Aikido one-hand up-the-chin-across the nose "unbalancing" things while the other hand grabbed the wrist, spun her about, did a kotegeishi (sp?), dropped her to the ground. All in reflex -- didn't have time to think about it. I can't recall who was more surprised at the time, me for doing at that by pure reflex, or her by being on the receiving end.

                              It's wasn't actually learned from a McDojo, but it was Aikido .... (does that count?)

                              Two years later, some guy tried to jump me in a bar -- actually he did something really stooopid, trying to catch me by surprise with a jumping haymaker (I guess he was trying to look cool). The hand-up-on-the-chin-tilting-head-back worked again (by reflex) especially when the other guy already has both feet off the ground. Dropped the weasel, and pinned him to the ground (with another Aikido move, can't recall the name, I haven't done aikido for many years) until the bouncer came over and ejected him.
