Martial Arts Warrior Training : Martial Arts Warrior Training: Fighting Position
In this clip we’re going to talk about the
warrior training fighting position. In every martial art you need a position from or what
we call the fighting position. Now I’m going to go over the mechanics to adjusting your
fighting position. Initially you want to start with your feet approximately shoulder width,
o.k. Your arms are at your side. Now make a note, this is based on if you’re right handed.
If you’re a southpaw or left handed it would just be the opposite. You’re going to start
with your feet shoulder width, take a big step back with your right foot. Very important
your right foot’s going to track out at forty five degree angle, with the heel slightly
elevated, about half an inch off the floor. That’s to aid your mobility. The next part
is you’re going to bend your front knee. I bend my front knee so I can’t be hyper extended
with a kick so my opponent can’t break my knee with a kick. So this is very important.
Your weight distribution on both sides is fifty fifty. We make our tight fists, elbows
in, fists at your chin, elbows in to protect your ribs and that’s it.
