The Importance of a Proper Stance

Did You Know A proper stance is the foundation for effective offense, defense, and overall performance in these combat sports?


The stance serves as a starting point for generating power, maintaining balance, and facilitating quick and efficient movement.

A solid stance provides a stable base which allows you to maintain balance and stability during exchanges with your opponent. It enables you to absorb and defensively react against incoming strikes while remaining in control of your movements by keeping your weight evenly distributed.

A proper and balance stance optimizes your ability to generate power, facilitates smooth weight transfers and pivoting. This enables efficient agile movement to evade attacks, create angles, and launch effective counterattacks. .


By positioning your feet, hips, and shoulders correctly, you can transfer your body weight efficiently and generate maximum force in your punches, kicks, and other offensive techniques. 

A correct stance helps distribute the impact of strikes throughout your body, reducing the risk of injury. It promotes proper alignment of joints and muscles, minimizing the strain on vulnerable areas such as the knees, hips, and spine.
