Kenpo Karate Stances

Kenpo Karate Stances

These are the American Kenpo Karate Stances you will find regardless of the style or school these basics are the same. All of them are found and required for the proper execution of the Kenpo Forms, no matter what rank you are; you still need to do them properly and know where to use them. The first four stances are mostly used in training but they are also found everywhere.

Things to consider on proper stances:

  • Your back has to be straight.
  • You are always looking forward.
  • If you are not comfortable doing the stance, then you’re doing it wrong.
  • If you feel pain in your knees or ankles and if you don’t have any injury then ask your instructor to make sure you are not doing something wrong.
