    Although our Kali stance is a lot more mobile.

    How does this differ from basic boxing stance and does it affect your punch power?

    Well, the Kali stance that we use looks a little like the boxing stance, but with wider steps. We also tend to bend the knees a little more when stepping towards diagonals for level switches. In general, our arms are less "set" into a guard (I mean orthodox guard, not philly shell) and even when not punching, they´re moving a lot. Remember that we use the forearms to punch.

    Thanks. I am very much intrigued and puzzled by FMA´s. I try to take a Kali intro seminar later in year
