There are numerous variations on how the arms should chamber for a block or strike. For example, for an inside-to-outside inner forearm middle block, some chamber with the blocking arm crossed above the non-blocking arm, some chamber under the non blocking arm.
- Block with boney sides of forearm.
- Block with meaty top and bottom of forearm.
- Block with follow-through motion.
- Block with snapping motion.
There are many variations in the chambering, techniques, stances, and movements within the standard traditional patterns. It is similar to a virus. An instructor forgets and slips a change into a pattern, or purposely introduces a change, which then gets replicated and spread by his/her students until it becomes a part of the pattern.
