Tae Kwon Do - Natural Guard

The Sparring Stance (also called the Fighting Stance, Guard Stance, or gyeorugi junbi - literally, sparring ready position) varies somewhat with the practitioner. Essentially, this is the position in which you feel most comfortable sparring. Common features across the arts include turning the body to the side to present a smaller target, slightly bent knees for balance and agility, feet about two shoulder widths apart, and hands up, protecting the head. In an art relying heavily on kicks, the body's mass is usually shifted slightly to the back leg, making the front leg easier to lift and increasing the speed of kicks.
