    I'm taking a stab and saying 63, but that's a quick count including cover blocks.

    I may be off though.

    I am gonna say 71 but I may be wrong--








    (Waiver: I know nothing about the form in question, just guessing..)
    The above is just my opinion.

    Hmmm. Then maybe I'm not counting blocks the same way.

    Let's start with short 1 then. I'm thinking 14.

    Then double it for the first part of long one and add the extra inward block.

    Two sets of 3 inward blocks with a transitory block between them. +7

    Transitory block to the outwards +1

    Two sets of 3 outward blocks with inward transitions. +12

    Same for the upwards +12

    Same for the downwards +12

    9 different blocks from the square horse.

    So that's 82.

    Where'd I miss the other 2?

    Two inward blocks.

    Two inward and outward blocks.

    Two inward and uptward blocks.

    Two reverse hand blocks and two downward blocks (technically, this is two kick blocks in our system, which would make it 12).

    Where are the other two? Do you do a transitory block after the first inward? Even then, that's 15.

    What am I not counting?

    Yes the Transitionary block make 15, but on your first step back the left hand crosses the center line making a minor movement block before the right hand blocks, for a total of 16.

    Okay. I get that. I don't usually do that block with the left hand, but I'm going to play with it. I also don't do the transitory block after the first inward. I don't know why I don't, because I probably should, so again, I'll play with it.

    Dang, that's a lot of blocks in that one little kata.

    Oh wait, then it would be 83 because I counted the transitory block between the first two blocks. Still, a lot of blocks.

    I'm guessing 4: Inward, Outward, Upward, & Downward?

    every block is a strike. so is every strike also a block?? i have counted 124 in long form 1.. when you do the set of 3, take the vertical outward blocks.. add double cicular blocks, (inward then outward).. same with the down out ward blocks...you can also exicute an in downward blocks palm up..

    use a uneversal block in the transition between doing the outward verticals moving to the upwards.. when you step to 6 with your right foot in the transition i use a universal block before going into the upward blocks to 3 oclock..

    play with it a little.. (no not that you sick'o's)

    Wow I was really off, I only counted 66 blocks unless you count everything else.
