Pow Choi (拋錘 lit. up-throwing hammar) is an upward block or strike that is used in the Hop Gar System of Kung Fu. Some of the main uses for this technique are to block long range strikes such as the straight punch. This strike can also be used as a "fishing" technique. For instance if one opponent was to strike another using a straight punch toward the stomach, he would purposefully use an upward block in order to make the side of their body open for their opponent to strike, hence the term "fishing". If their opponent decides to take the bait and strike the side of their body, all they would have to do is drop the arm and Chie Sahn (turn the body on the balls of the feet). From that point they can then use any technique that they would want to in order to manipulate their opponent.
