2) I don't think he implies uke being motionless in front of you is a barrier or is preventing you from doing anything. No different to a lamp post really.
A lamp post can block you from going somewhere if it's in the right position. That was my point - this theory is invalidated that by the fact that there are many times when you will have to deal with someone who is not moving.

Best,
