(Na-ran-hi Jun-bi Seo-gi)

The stance is one (1) 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 with the legs straight.  The fists are clenched slightly and 5 centimeters (2 inches) apart.  There should be approximately 7 centimeters (2.9 inches) between the fists and the abdomen and 10 centimeters (4.1 inches) between the elbows and the floating ribs.  The upper arms are forward at 30 degrees while the lower arms are bent upward at 40 degrees.  This stance is performed full or side facing.
