Shorin-Ryu Karate Tips & Techniques : Back Stance in Shorin-Ryu Karate


How are you doing? My name is Qaeem, on behalf
of Expert Village. I’m going to be demonstrating Shorin-Ryu karate. In Shorin-Ryu karate, one
of the stances that I’m going to be demonstrating is the back stance. Now the back stance is
similar to the cat stance, however the differences are is that you’re not going to be switching
your feet. You’re simply going to get into your back stance, which is generally called
the fighting stance. Both of your feet are going to be planted flat on the ground. You’re
going to have the weight of your body on your back leg. So therefore, you have to lift your
front leg up. You can lift it up easily and kick from your front leg so that you have
the weight on the back leg. Your height is going to stay the same, even when you are
kicking. Now with the back stance, you’re going to be just sliding forward and sliding
back. That’s how you’re going to get around. The back stance moving forward, just come
up on the heel of your foot, plant it down, slide your back leg up. Just as though if
you are attacking the target in front. Same thing when moving backwards except your back
leg is going to move first. Just slide your front leg back, and moving forward. That is
the back stance. On behalf of the Expert Village, my name is Qaeem. Thank you for watching.
