Basic Kung Fu Moves : The Horse Riding Stance in Kung Fu


This is Yun Yang Wang from Wang’s Martial
Art and on behalf of the Expert Village and this is Ms. Esmeralda Sanchez and we’re
demonstrating this clip, Horse Riding Stance. This is a strong stance to build up the leg
strength and the upper part of the leg is almost leveled and this is a strong stance
in facing your opponent and the side part of the body, so you keep the important part
of the vital body away from your opponent. Then notice the back part needs to be arched
in a little bit and the knees bent, both feet are parallel. And from another angle to see
the arch of the back. And the upper part of the legs is almost horizontal and the hand
position, this arm is almost high block position to protect the head and the upper cut on the
side. Thank you.

  1. 1) What's the practicality of this stance? How is it superior to just standing normally with your guard up? Again, I've never seen this used in any martial arts competitions where two people were actually fighting each other, and can only imagine how bad this idea would be in a street fight.

    2) with the legs positioned that far apart, whats to stop me from sweeping the front leg and sending you to the floor?

  2. in kung fu the first thing to learn are the basic position (horse stance is one), after you learn how to move (walk),how to use your hands and how to kick, when somebody is practicing a form of kung fu (in chinese taolu), he's doing a mix of the thing that I said before, forms are made to teach the

  3. could throw dust in your eyes or other dirty tricks like that, so remember: form is one thing, technical aptechniques of the style (ps: nord eagle claw) that you're learning, but actual application of the technique, could be a bit different to the one used in the form, street fight is although very different, and most of what you're learning

  4. need to be modified a lot to be usefull in a real street fight, on the street the rules are different, somebody plication of the form is another thing, and street fight is completly different!

    hope to have explained well!

  8. darioferrini,
    what makes you think that street fighting is something special? street fighting has no rules and kung fu was developed in a time when martial arts was the primary form of self-defense. there were no rules in combat that involved kung fu, so there is nothing wrong with these styles. it's all a matter of whom you train with and what you are training for.

  9. is it really necessary to make a tutorial about it ? there are hundreds of detailled pictures on the internet…

  10. it mean that this is a stance… not a whole style… lots of fight styles use this stance… what I mean is you cant say its defensive style when they are just showing a stance… explaining it just that… you made a comment with no basis

  11. Unless you're training to fight from horseback, the only value of this stance is to build some leg strength.

  12. my trainer told me not to do the horse stance because some one could kick you right in the "you know what"!!!!

  13. @Ozymandius666 yeah, except, you can't really move quickly enough in this stance, unless you're fighting someone who's wearing 50 lbs of armor.
    Study the history of combat, dude.

  14. @PeiKwa17 Yes indeed. not to forget the feet should be turned straight not 45 degrees or more.. + the but. pull ur butt in for the qi.
