Pinewood Karate Back Stance
The Back Stance is a defensive stance that shifts 80 percent of the weight to the back foot. This allows the fighter to block or pull away from an attack. The shift of balance from the Forward Stance to the Back Stance assists the warrior by enabling him or her to more efficiently defend against incoming attacks. Mastering this stance is an important step for the Pinewood Karate Yellow Belt student.
