How are you doing? My name is Qaeem and on
behalf of Expert Village, I’m going to be demonstrating Shorin-Ryu Karate. In Shorin-Ryu
Karate, we’re going to be having many different stances. One of the stances I am going to
be demonstrating right now is the horse stance. The horse stance is a stance that you are
going to be fighting opponents that are going to be on your either side. They could be in
front of you; however, generally with the horse stance you are going to be guarding
yourself from the sides. The horse stance, you are going to start out with a ready position.
Your feet are going to be together and you are going to come up. You’re going to X-block
and you are going to step out and down. This right here is to guard your groin; to guard
yourself in front of you. Once again, you are going to start off in a ready position.
Ready. You’re going to step out with your left foot, always step out with your left
foot. Come up X and down. Now the horse stance, once you are in that position you’re going
to bend your knees and you are going to stay centered. You don’t want to be bouncing
up and down. You do not want to get too low where it is hard for you to move. You want
to be comfortable; however, you want your gravity to be centered okay. So generally,
like I said, this is for people that are fighting you from both sides. It’s going to be here
or here, and you’re going to be in center. This is horse stance and on behalf of Expert
Village, my name is Qaeem, thank you for watching.
