(Na-ran-hi Seo Gyo-cha Son-deung)

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 forearms are crossed at shoulder level, with the fingertips of the knifehands at philtrum level.  The thumbs are approximately 10 centimeters (4.1 inches) in front of the chin.  This stance is only performed full facing.
