Chambering for hand techniques usually involves crossing the arms. Depending on the technique used, the attacking arm may cross over or under the other arm. The arms are tightly crossed one over the other with one elbow over the other. From this position, if either arm is grabbed, the other is free to react. If the arms are crossed with one in front of the other, if the leading arm is grabbed and pushed backward, it will trap the other arm and prevent any reaction with the arms.
If chambering is always used in training sessions, it will led to quick techniques that also have maximum power. Like everything else, it takes extensive training to chamber quick enough to make blocks ineffective.
