Written Instructions for the ITF Taekwondo Fixed Stance

  • One foot in front of the other foot.
  • Length of this stance is one and a half shoulder widths.
  • There is almost no "width" to this stance because a student's heels should be almost in line.
  • Feet should form a L shape (with one foot facing forward and one facing to the side).
  • According to the ITF Switzerland Taekwon-Do Federation, a student should bend "the rear leg until the knee is aligned with the big toe, bending the front leg proportionally".
  • Body weight is split 50% on rear leg and 50% on front leg. Unlike the L-stance, the fixed stance is more balanced in its weight distribution.
