Kshep or Rodh = blocks (i.e. blocking the opponents strike)
There are three basic Ksheps in Niyuddha depending on the area of the Kshep.
Uth-kshep (Top block): Push the opponent strike that was targeted on your face to up, away from your body at a flick. Make sure you cover the whole body as you move your hand up and flick at the end ensuring that the blocking arm is from the inside. Soft part of arm facing out.
Parshwa-kshep (Side block): push the opponent strike that was targeted on your upper body to the side, away from your body at a flick.
Adho-kshep (lower block): Push the strike that was targeted on your part . Make sure you cover the whole body on your way down and keep the ‘wall’ there so your arm doesn’t end up too far away from your body in the final position.
Rodh agna includes all 3 ksheps alternately. Total 6 ksheps (each kshep 2 times)
