Difficulty Level: Intermediate Technique: Stance ( 서기 sogi )
Stance is performed in an upright standing position with the legs side by side, heels touching, toes slightly apart. Cover the right fist with the left hand and lift them up from the solar plexus to the target area. Put all of your strength into the right hand since that is the attacking hand. The left hand is used to cover and protect the right hand. Note the left hand should not cover the right fist too tightly. This is a form of Ready Posture ( junbi-jase 준비자세 ).
