Written Instructions for Stance

  • Your feet should be in a L-shape (your front foot points forward and your back foot points 90 degrees to the side).
  • The "length" between your two feet is about two shoulder widths apart.
  • The "width" between your two feet is minimally as your legs should almost be in a single line facing towards your opponent.
  • You will place most of your weight on your back leg. Your rear knee will be partially bent.
  • Your body will be facing to the side and thus you are offering a smaller target to your opponent in the front.
