like in boxing to receive a blow
so a Fighter blocks
a Brute "encaisse"
an Acrobat dodges
Well you said "block" for fighter so if it's not "block" (also "parry"),
encaisse sounds a bit like encase which would be a "grab" of a a weapon
or arm, or perhaps "bear hug" in the case of full body.
Google translate is no help.
