Seiken Jodan Uke

Seiken Jodan Uke is a blocking technique used in Kyokushin karate. It translates to 'Upper-Level Block.' In this technique, the practitioner raises the forearm vertically to block or intercept incoming attacks aimed at the upper region (jodan) of the body. Seiken Jodan Uke is typically used to defend against strikes directed at the head, face, or neck. The forearm is positioned in front of the body, with the hand open or closed into a fist, depending on the specific variation of the technique. The blocking motion is executed with speed and precision to deflect or absorb the force of the opponent's attack while minimizing the risk of injury. Seiken Jodan Uke is an essential defensive technique in Kyokushin karate, providing protection against high-level strikes and creating opportunities for counterattacks.
