Rick, Jim, I've noticed this in many demonstrations and training. I've also noticed for many techniques in karate they have to be applied before the strike is locked out. The demonstration has become the technique. Too much punching air.If you are blocking a strike, you are responding usually at the “end” of the strike.
Why not do both at the same time?If you can move your arm to block you can move it to strike.

Heck Jim, I see that as the best way to get the job done. Everything else is just playing around.I am not comfortable read advanced enough yet to trust this fancy crap, so I prefer to go for the inside line stop hit or outside line attack clash and if they get in the way so much the better.
I don’t think of this as blocking but closing and jamming so maybe it is just a terminology thing.
