Pinewood Karate Horse Stance

The Horse Stance is the first basic stance you will learn as a Pinewood Karate student. Many martial arts around the world make use of this ubiquitous stance but Pinewood has its own minor variations. Make special note of the distance between the feet, and the height of the stance. The feet must be parallel to each other. This stance can not only be used when fighting but can also be integrated into exercise form.
