Kosho Uke Waza: The Art of Blocking

* Kosho Uke Waza

Kosho Uke Waza: The Art of Blocking. Welcome to part 6 of the Kosho Core Concepts Series. In this video course I will be addressing one of the most misunderstood foundation of the martial arts. The Art of Uke or Blocking. So, what do I mean "misunderstood?" Most students learn some basic blocks, the up block, the down block, the inside and outside block. And of course the middle block.

This is all fine.

However they are also taught to step back or forward and deliver a hard block to the attackers arm. And usually around the wrist area  because bloc is delivered LATE due to it being a reaction. And this method relies on speed and power.

Most of all the mass of the attacker is taken on! Plus a second strike is coming, because no one punches ONCE. Critically there is no time for this planned counter. Everything has gone wrong.

So what is the solution? What needs to be taught first is WHEN to block. This is called TIMING and many people confuse timing with speed. But they are not mutually inclusive. Speed without timing is a death sentence on the street. Timing without speed is not so sever. But is non the less important. 

And not only is when important but also WHERE to move to deliver the block without taking on body mass and helping the attacker setup his next strike. Tradition methods because they were not taught completely aid the attacker in his next strike. However Kosho Uke Waza: The Art of Blocking will evolve the teaching your have received and fix this issue for you.

What is inKosho Uke Waza: The Art of Blocking?
  • Cloaking your blocks so the attacker does not see them happen
  • Movement in the Octagon to prevent or delay the second attack
  • Turning a block into a knockout strike or even a throw

  • And so much more!

Kosho Uke Waza: The Art of Blocking

Martial Arts training should not be looked at as an activity. It is rather a study. And a study that lasts for a lifetime. The world is in the trouble it is in today because people are not educated, they are indoctrinated. Therefore they regurgitate information that is not truth, but part of a narrative.

And the martial arts world has been affected by this also. Thus the believe that ring fighting and feats of physical prowess are the only way. There is no truth to this idea. These things have value, but are only a fraction of the entire picture.

Learning is for a lifetime.

How often have you heard someone say that they are "too old for" something? There is not truth to this as age is a state of mind. Anyone can do the Kosho Uke Waza: The Art of Blocking. Age is a state of mind.

Too many martial artists my age have relegated themselves to talking about their glory days at a coffee shop, or worse social media platforms. Remember to "Never say Never" or "Niciodată să nu spui niciodată" in Romanian. You are never to old to learn, and as an example I am learning a language to the point of certifying as a speaker in my 60's. And I consider this to be part of my martial arts training!

Kosho Ryu is the study of natural laws, and language is who we communicate and teach those laws. Age is a state of mind. But if you are trapped in the idea that martial arts is ONLY physical, a victory at a tournament then you grow old. Relegated to talking about the glory days at a Pizza Hut as Hanshi Juchnik states it. And this course on the Kosho Uke Waza: The Art of Blocking is an important part of learning and study.

My Journey in Kosho

Some believe that I am new to the study of Kosho Ryu and am trying to build a name for myself in this art. That is furthest thing from the truth. I began my Kosho Ryu journey in 2000 with Shidoshi Richard Buchan and continued after we parted ways. 

Kosho Ryu became a major part of everything we did in our art of Hon Sang Mu Sa Hapkido. And even the name Hon San Mu Sa is a Kosho reference. Old Pine Tree, where a monk was enlightened under a pine tree about Natural Laws.  For years I referred to the study as Octagon training until I recently realized I needed to honour the history of the art by remaining true to the linage. 

Kosho Ryu, in truth is now my root art, as I have been training in it longer than anything else including Hapkido. I do not study Kosho for the purpose of rank. I have enough rank. I study it for personal development and growth withing the arts. And to share that knowledge with all those interested in learning. 

Kosho Ryu has done for me exactly what I was seeking when I left my first teacher. The answer to the question of waht was missing in Hapkido. And how that learning translated to the streets. It is what makes Kyusho Jitsu, the science of pressure points street worthy. But to learn we must truly let go of the things we think we know and learn.

I hope you will join me on this journey. All knowledge is self knowledge, and Kosho Ryu is a true study of Natural Laws and therefore the self. Kosho Uke Waza: The Art of Blocking is part of this journey.

Thank you for your time and have a wonderful day! Keep Learning!
