8 Basic Stances
The 8 Basic Stances of Shaolin comprise the fundamentals for all systems of Chinese Martial Arts. Here you will learn 8 forms which represent each stance. The purpose of the form is to train you in the STANCE even though there are hand movements to accompany the stance. Without proper stance training, your forms and self defense will suffer and be deficient. However, with proper stance training, you will build a strong root which will lead to power, speed, and coordination.
The 8 Basic Stances of Shaolin are:
Each Stance does have variation of the stance, but the root of the stance is in the orginal form of the stance.
The beginning or starting position for all Shaolin is Ready
