    Default Blocking Set #1 (aka Star Block)

    By Ed Parker Sr.


    A. Contains:

    Sequence of blocks that are as follows: (up, in, extended outward,
    down, re-cock, pushdown)

    1. Right upward block for a left overhead club attack or chop.
    2. Right inward block for a right punch to the body.
    3. Right extended outward block for a left punch to the face.
    4. Right outside downward block for a left kick to the groin.
    5. Right hand re-cocks (a right back elbow block) to your right hip
    for a left roundhouse kick to your right kidney.
    6. Right push©down block for a right knee kick to the groin.

    B. Teaches:

    1. Five (5) major blocks in addition to one (1) hidden block.
    2. Sequence of blocks that promote Continuity of Motion and preserve Economy of Motion.
    3. Correct manner in which to use your major blocks.
    4. Blocks that protect all three (3) "Zones of Protection".
    5. The execution of these major blocks while in a stationary position.
    6. Maximum cover of head and upper body areas.
