Let (X, L) be a polarized Kahler manifold that admits an extremal metric in c(1) (L). We show that on a nearby polarized deformation (X', L') that preserves the symmetry induced by the extremal vector field of (X, L), the modified K-energy is bounded from below. This generalizes a result of Chen, Szekelyhidi and Tosatti {[}8,35,38] to external metrics. Our proof also extends a convexity inequality on the space of Kahler potentials due to X.X. Chen {[}7] to the extremal metric setup. As an application, we compute explicit polarized 4-points blow-ups of CP1 x CP1 that carry no extremal metric but with modified K-energy bounded from below.
