Soto-Uke (outisde inside block) or as it was taught in Shukokai Uchi-Uke (inside block) does not appear in the Pinan / Heian Kata's unless i am mistaken. Has anyone noticed this before? and has it been a past topic in the past, if so my apologies.
I find it rather odd as it is one of the five basic blocks, it does of course appear in Bassai-Dai. Does anyone have a credible answer to why it is missing?
In Shukokai's Pinan Shodan it does seem to be appear at the beginning however in Shotokan's Heian Nidan it is referred to as a punch.
