What terms do you use for each version of the outside block? Taegeuk style - starts from the shoulder, crossing motion, ends with the palm facing out. Usually used to protect your chest or face. Seen in Taegeuks 4 & 6. Palgwe style - starts at the hip or under the arm, scooping motion, ends with the palm facing in. Protects the gut or chest. Seen in the double outside blocks in Koryo and at the start of Keumgang. At my school, we teach the Taegeuk style with an open hand, and call it "knife hand block." This gets confusing later on when teaching the Taegeuks, because now it's a "closed-hand knife-hand block". All of the other blocks are taught to our white belts with a closed fist. I would like to find a good term that doesn't lead to this future confusion. However, since both blocks travel in the same general direction (inside to outside), I need to find a different name for "outside block" for at least one of them. Things I'm considering: call the Taegeuk style a "forearm block", or call the Palgwe style the "scoop block." Both of these seem to fit what I want, but they just don't sound quite right to me. Maybe there's a better term. This is in line with a few of my other vocabulary related threads. I'm trying to use a "keywords" system (similar to board games and video games) to give me clear, concise, comprehensive terminology for most common commands. How do you differentiate between outside blocks?
