Written Kata Instructions

First of all, I have to mention that there is a particularity that must be understood for the kihon kata.
If you watch the video, you should notice a transition stance on most move followed with zenkutsu dachi,
gyaku tsuki. Therefore, this transition stance I will use in my description is similar to han kiba dashi at 45°
with the front leg standing on the ball of the foot.
