U-Shaped Block (digutja makgi)
The sole purpose of this technique is to block either a pole or bayonet with a reverse knifehand. This is performed mainly with fixed and L-stances, though occasionally walking, rear foot or X-stances are used. Keep both hands in a vertical line at the moment of the block. The lower elbow should be flush with the hip while leaning the body slightly towards the target at the moment of the block.
