    Many of the one-legged low-stance positions are considered a form of chi gung, and taught as such, if you subscribe to such things. Either way, it is a nice "poor man's squat" for those who dont have a handy squat rack.

    As far as the one-legged stance with the ying/yang hand positions, some styles (like Mizong Quan) have elements/positions of Tai Chi in "external" forms. I have yet to fire any chi balls but as with all training and all physical movement, comfort comes from what is familiar and repetitive. Some people find the expansion of the chest and stretching of the arms very stimulating.

    I know you could take some cheap shots and Google "Wushu" and find pics like this:



    Then say "OMG, that stance sucks. You would get killed in a fight." But as the first post shows, there are quotes from the source that indicate that the school teaches self defence. Ergo, there really are people out there who believe that standing on one leg with your arms in the air has some relation to real fighting. How many teachers of monkey style Kung-fu state that learning thier system will not teach you how to fight, and is really a form of exercise?

    By the way, this wouldn't work in a fight :)

    That's "Chinglish" for "prostrating" ie. "to bow in front of".

    A better English translation for the post name would be something like, "crouching fish prays to Buddha". The character they translated as "protating" is "wo". It's the "crouching" in "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon". I'm not sure how a fish can crouch though..."lurking fish prays to Buddha"?

    um...you mean like the pic I just posted?



    Note: I am standing on one foot with my arms in the air. The main difference is that my right hand is not extended out to the rear but rather in front of my face just in case. Other than that and a few postural details, it is essentially the same stance.

    No...as much as it looks like I am in the pic, I am not getting kicked in the nuts. I am blocking the kick with my shin just about my foot while counterpunching.

    And yes, I do believe that this is the stance that that bastardized wushu version is derived from.

    Actually I've been thinking for a long time that many of the stances are done to make fun of their opponents. Or something.




    And it's a really slow news day:

    I found a use for Zenkutsu-Dachi, I use it as a starting point for showing people how to do learn a Butterfly kick in a very short time. It always makes me laugh that I'm using a traditional Karate stance (that people think works in fighting) to teach a Wushu move (that people think wotks in fighting) that I make clear is just an acrobatic trick. It's also helps me feel that all those years of Karate weren't a complete waste of my time.
