On the circular block, as performed in Won Hyo for example, how deep should you dip your knee while performing this block. I've seen it done with a slight dip all the way to a deeeeeep dip.
Taekwon!!

In my opinion if you want to block with your inner forearm a attack to najunde, what is not possible if you don't dip your knee, you have to go down only a few centimeters.
The best is to test it. Place a foot in front of your najunde target area and go down as much as you need to block with the inner forearm.

Best wishes
