Morote Tate Yoko Uke

A block in which a weapon is held with both hands and positioned vertically off to the side. For example, a Hidari Morote Tate Yoko Uke would position the weapon vertically just outside of the left hip such that the weapon protects the left side of the body from an attack on that side. The weapon ideally should not lean in any direction but should be positioned absolutely vertically.
