The stance is performed with both feet together and parallel,
and therefore has no length or
width. The weight is distributed evenly on both feet with the legs straight. The left knifehand overlaps on top of the right knifehand, and the middle fingertips and the foreknuckles are on top
of each other. The knifehands are held 10 centimeters (4.1 inches) overlapping each other in front of the lower abdomen, with the right hand closest
to the body. This stance is performed either full or side facing.
