Sections of the Body

When blocking, the reference to the body indicates which section you are protecting: low, middle (trunk), or high (face).

  • Block | Mak-ki | 막기
  • Low block | Ah-rae mak-ki | 아래 막기
  • Inside block, literally, trunk block | Moem-tong mak-ki | 몸통 막기
  • Outside block, literally, trunk outward block | Moem-tong ba-kat mak-ki | 몸통 바깥 막기
  • High block, literally, face block | Ul-guel mak-ki | 얼굴 막기

Challenge: How do these 4 blocks use the sections of the body in their names?
