View Full Version : Names of moves.
Can anyone tell me the names of the most common used karate moves/ blocks. Example : Age Uke .
Also if you could give the description of the move aswell it will help out alot.
Hey, You need to buy a book. This isn't an online encyclopedia and I, for one, am not going to do your work for you. There are plenty of books out there with the terms listed along with illustrations: "Karate Do: The Art of Empty Hand Fighting," by Nishiyama and Brown; "The Essence of Okinawan Karate," by Nagamine; "Dynamic Karate," by Nakayama. Try those for starters.
I agree with Gene. Do a little reading and research, especially books that is about your style or one that you may be interested in.
I see by your profile that you're not training yet. No worries, when you do start training in a style you'll learn the names as you learn the tehniques.
Hey Gene Williams, I think I worded my question wrongly. I did not realize that I put karate moves in my question it was only meant to be basic blocks. So am sorry for the wording and by reading your response there probably is a whole book on karate blocks aswell didn't realize so sorry again.
One thing though when you said this is not an online encyclopedia I know that so there was no need to put such a remark. I just hope you remember you was once a beginner without knowledge.
Thanks for the names of the books though. There goes an old saying even the oldest prickliest cactus can still give water, in your case it's true.
:cry: Poor baby! Did I hurt its itsy bitsy feelings? :laugh:
Lol well glad to see you have a sense of humour. When I said old cactus I didn't mean you was old so take no notice of that please.
No worries Tim. We consider Gene and old cactus.
Damn, Tony. I wanted to be a rose or a lily or something :(
