The block and hold chip technique is a very simple movement of the body. The arms are going to do very little, but they are not frozen. The biggest difference in the feel of the swing will be the interaction with the ground. In the block and hold technique, you will be using the leading edge (dig side) of the club head. Depending on the firmness of the ground, this will cause the club to dig into the ground. You have to make sure that you hit the ball first or else this shot will be a disaster. To ensure that you hit the ball first, make sure your upper body shifts toward the target in the backswing and keeps going that direction during the downswing. That piece is universal to all good finesse strokes.
