Re: Outlet Stances
Nice explanation and discussion re: ratioanles for the stance. Coming from a more boxer and traditonal background I'm always being told my stancing is too deep and too low , although I've adopted the krav stance, just sometimes a bit lower ( ie bent legs). One question/comment.. I understand all the reasons you discussed, most of which i've heard before, for the front facing stance as opposed to a more bladed stance. My concenr has always been the body exposire to a front kick in particular when squared off with an opponent. I will note that when sparring "krav guys" ( those without other martial arts training) the front thrust kick gets them almost everytime due to that front facing , body exposed positioning. I just view it as a trade off for some of the other beneifts, but whenever im told not to blade at all and to not be low(as stable) , I always hear that little voice inside saying you are losing power and some covering.. Thoughts from you or any other readers...?
