Parallel Stance  (Narani Sogi)

 

The stance is one shoulder-width wide, measured from the footswords. The feet are even and parallel and therefore the stance has no length. The weight is distributed evenly on both feet (50/50) with the legs straight. This stance is performed full or side facing.

This stance serves primarily as preparatory actions though occasionally used for attack or defense.

The ready posture for this stance is: Parallel Ready Stance  (Narani Junbi Sogi)
