Leslie Griesdorf: 3 Basic Stances of Karate

Formerly a karate student at the Northern Karate School, Leslie Griesdorf is grateful for the opportunity he had to receive and benefit from the school’s comprehensive karate training. As a dedicated student, Leslie Griesdorf received and absorbed lessons on not only various fighting moves, but also the discipline and self-control that is required to achieve any sort of success in the martial art.
Reaching the level of Brown Belt, Leslie Griesdorf received thorough instruction on the many aspects of karate; lessons he values to this day.
As Griesdorf has learned, Karate is more-or-less built on the foundation of three basic stances. These include:
1. Shizentai-Dachi
Considered the “natural” or walking stance, Shizentai-Dachi is when your feet are spread apart at a natural width, your front foot is pointing forward and your back foot, which is located at a 45-degree angle, is directed behind you.
2. Zenkutsu-Dachi
Zenkutsu-Dachi (front stance) is much like the Shizentai-Dachi stance, only your feet are spread further apart and most of your weight is planted on your front leg.
3. Nekoashi-Dachi

Referred to as the back stance, or “Cat stance,” Nekoashi-Dachi consists of your foot positioned much like it is in the walking stance, with your weight primarily hoisted upon your back leg.
