‎6.4.3 The elbow must be bent while blocking with that arm.

The third in the list of rules in the Use of Elbows section, this rule forbids straight-arm blocking. Oddly, this rule would help prevent a skater from committing an illegal Forearms action, yet is included in the Elbows section. Regardless, any block made by a skater with their arm must be made with the elbow bent.
