Walking stance (Gunnun sogi)

This is a strong stance for front and rear, both in attack and defence.
  • Move one foot to either front or rear at a distance of one and a half shoulder width between the big toes and a shoulder width from one centre of the instep to the other. Over one and a half shoulder width in distance makes the movement slow and weak against an attack from the side, and weak against an attack from the front or rear.
  • Bend the front leg until the knee cap forms a vertical line with the heel, extending the opposite leg fully.
  • Distribute the body weight evenly on both feat.
  • Keep the toes of the front foot pointing forward, the opposite foot 25 degrees outward. Over 25 degrees weakens the leg joint against an attack from the rear.
  • Tense the muscles of the feet wrth the feeling of pulling them toward each other.
When the right leg is bent, the stance is called a right walking stance and vice-versa. It can be either full facing or half facing both in attack and defence.
