    For TKD when performing in back stance, is there a rule of thumb for what to do with the back hand while blocking with the front hand. Is it a chigi vs. makki thing? Sometimes the back hand is closed and at the hip while other times the back hand is open and in front of the solar plexus. I am unaware of ever being taught a rule other than how it is performed in a particular form. Thanks for your help.

    The only time there is a rule is when you're performing a specific poomsae.
