I would image he blocked the crowbar by blocking the bad guys' forearm that was holding the crowbar, not the actual crowbar itself, but who knows?
A funny aside, I took karate as a young kid and we were taught how to block a knife, with like a karate kid "wax on" movement, and I didn't understand that we weren't blocking the knife, just the other guys' arm. At the time, I thought to myself, "but the knife would go right through my hand!" Man was I dumb back then, and truthfully, haven't gotten much smarter through the years.
