Gedan Shuto Juji Uke is a technique in Kyokushin karate. It translates to 'Lower-Level Knife-Hand Cross Block.' This technique involves using a knife-hand block in a cross formation to defend against lower-level attacks. The term 'Gedan' refers to the lower level, 'Shuto' indicates the knife-hand, 'Juji' means cross, and 'Uke' refers to the block. It is commonly employed to intercept kicks or low strikes and redirect them away from the body.
