Different stances in kendo
by Russian kendoguide user
I would like to ask you about the stances in kendo. What stances are used in kendo and what is the main difference between them?
I'm new in kendo. Actually I am going to start practicing next month. Now I am reading about the kendo. Answer:
thank you for your question. In kendō
we have two stances; chūdan
. They're the only stances we use in kendō
In kendō kata
, five stances are introduced; chūdan
The reason why we don't use any other stances is because kendō
has changed. Gedan
and any other stances seen in old kendō
schools are not very practical in kendō
Hope this helps.
