How do you block or counter punches in Uncharted 4?


I went through the tutorial at the prison that shows you how to fight with your fists. It told me at one point that you can press circle to evade but it never went into much detail about how to counter a punch or how to even block an enemy attack. It can be quite annoying sometimes when an enemy can just punch you like that and there is nothing you can to stop them. Or least it seems that way, I cant figure out how to block incoming enemy attacks or counter them. Anyone know what to do?

The combat system is a bit strange. I think you have to take the punch and you can only counter the grapple by pressing triangle when an enemy grabs you or the game slows down a bit before they try to attack you more seriously.

I played around with this for a while for the same reason and the game control information, nor pressing a range of buttons would make Nate dodge or block an attack effectively.
