Wide kneel Stance
A wide kneel is defined as a “collapsed neutral bow” that maintains the same weight distribution as it does in its not collapsed form, Its weight distribution is 50/50. This stance is used to accentuate the Marriage of Gravity.
Just like executing a Neutral Bow, but in this case, your back foot sits on the ball preparing that leg to move into a Close kneel at any time.
You will find this stance in many Kenpo forms, sets, and self-defense techniques.
