Kakiwake Uke

A block in which both hands cross slightly and move along the center line (rising or falling) then turn outward in the form of dual outward extended blocks. This block might also be referred to as Morote Outward Extended Blocks, but Kakiwake Uke sounds so much better. It is commonly used at the Chudan level, but can also be used at the Gedan level.
