    My point was a generalisation about range and the styles given as an example. I'm not talking about a square on horse stance, more about approximate hip position. While your students are keeping a foot forward stance, most of the time their hips are much more square on than a TKD fighter or fencer. Yes they all may switch positions as the fight goes but generally their default hip position is different. A boxer will take a more side on stance if they're going in and out using their jab (a bit like a fencer) but once they close and start throwing combo's their hips become square on.

    Basically if you want to use both hands and have better side to side movement a more square on stance is better. If you want faster in / out movement and present a smaller target a more side on stance is better.

    I love to watch Sumo.
    It is often very technical, and a fascinating precursor sport to modern Judo.
    In fact, I am generally a fan of all forms of belt wrestling.

    I appreciate Sumo because it gives morbidly obese children a sense of belonging. It gives them something to aspire to. I really wouldn't want to have one of those guys strike or latch onto me though.

    I think thereīs actually a tad more to professional sumo than being obese (and strong)

    I dont even bother to link anything, but in case you havent watched i.e sumo competition (pro) highlights you maybe should?

    And in the case you dont see some quite serious technique taking place there well maybe we live in different installations of the Matrix of something

    I've watched it, I enjoyed watching it and I wouldn't want to tangle with even a small Sumo. Conversely, I am terrified of obese people, not their imposing presence, but the fear of seeing a really fat chick without adequate clothing.
