Legs straight or bent?

When executing the stance, your legs can be setup in 3 different ways:

  • Both legs straight - both left and right legs are in a locked position. (Figure 1)
  • Both legs bent - both left and right legs are bent. (Figure 2)
  • Front leg bent and back leg straight. (Figure 3)

What is important to note here is that your body is in a stable position. How do you know if you are stable enough? Try this: Have a friend push you slightly while you are in your stance position. If you feel off-balanced with a slight push, then your stance is not stable enough.

Depending on the players height, the legs are positioned in one of the 3 ways mentioned above. Taller players tend to have both legs bent so that they can get down lower while shorter player generally have both legs straight. The illustrations above show both legs straight, both legs bent and front leg bent and back leg straight.
