HOW TO: Morote uke – simply explained | Shotokan Karate technique

December 10, 2019


Hello today we have the topic Morote uke, the defense technique with both arms. The front arm repels like Uchi Uke – the same movement covers the Chudan area. The back arm gets out from behind, as the front arm also. Back of the hand is best up, because when we arrive, front, the back of the hand are turned forward. This gives us the maximum rotation to develop a great force. The hip goes with it. In the same direction, where the defense technique is, there is also the hip. The forward movement is ellyptic, but should not be so wide, but rather close to the body. Also important is the horizontal movement of the elbow to actually cover the Chudan area. The back arm touches the front forearmin the area below. Morote uke is usually performed in Kokutsu dachi, but of course there are also in Zenkutsu dachi. That’s all for today. Thank you and see you next time.
