Shuto Uke

It´s a knife/sword hand block. This block makes contact with the edge of the hand and is used against blows to the abdomen, chest or face. The edge of the hand (from the arm that performs the block) is initially brandished on a tilting motion. During the blocking, the elbow of the arm seeks to form a right angle.
