    Thank you for this lesson.

    Wow…what a clear description of the tactical value of the welcoming position!

      Ben, how is the weight distributed in this stance? What is the foot position? Thanks

      • If you’re doing this mostly stationary then the feet should be close together and the feet should be equal. Neither foot should be in front of the other.

        If you position the feet too wide or put one foot forward this will limit your mobility as well as decrease the effectiveness of the positioning.

        However, ideally you are never standing still so this should be done while walking or running.
