  1. guys, if really want to know Kung Fu, Martial Arts, MMA
    Go to google Bruce Lee's interview
    He explained it very well
    Using no way as the way, using No limitation as the limitation—-Jeet Kune Do's concept

  2. yeah there are variations but they are teaching basic horse stance in shaolin which means it should be lower

  3. exactly the monks do a horse stance for 2 hours parralel to the ground balancing bowls of water on there legs, arms shoulders, and head.

  4. actually, to even become a monk, they were required to hold this stance for 24 hours- it was to weed out the weak ones, and determine who really wanted to become a monk

  5. Doing the horse stance means you're a wall blocking a path. People saying a kick to the nuts is the most opening spot and the most vulnerable way to take out a horse stanced person. It is true BUT there's actually a way to train getting kicked to the nuts and not feel any pain. Some martial artists use that intensive training for almost 5 years of getting kicked in the nuts. Once they're comfortable of getting kicked in the nuts, meaning NO PAIN of nut kicking, you completed your ultimate defensive wall. So horse stance + no pain from kick to the nuts = ultimate defensive wall

  6. kung fu channel..do you actually have any knowledge of the Chinese arts or do you just watch kung fu movies and post vids on YouTube!!?? from what you say and how you speak I somehow doubt you have any actual training….

  7. Horse stance is supposed to be same as riding a horse. Ride a horse, then remember how wide it is, then copy it on an imaginary one. You'll notice your feet are really supposed to be slightly planted on the outside of of your shoulder width. That wide stuff is after the cultural revolution where they erased the combat portion of it.
