This stance is performed
standing on one leg and therefore has no length or width. The weight is all distributed
on the stationary leg, which is straight with either the reverse footsword of the non-supporting foot (flat and parallel to
the floor with the toes pulled back) placed on the side of the knee joint of the supporting leg, or with the instep of the
non-supporting foot placed in the hollow at the rear of the knee of the supporting leg.
This stance is named for the stationary leg and is performed full or side facing.
