Well, typically... I would say they always use hanmi and hitoemi and kengagoshi. But then maybe it's just the group I happened to train with. Someone from Iwama could be of greater help here, but certainly not "always" and not "typically", IMHO.

Ah! I see. Although I haven't heard those terms (except hanmi) before or at least not enough to have them in mind but after looking them up you are absolutely right. All those stances(?) are used at different points. So my "always" was the very broad over generalization of a beginner. Perhaps I am just refering to variations of hanmi. Anyways, thanks for the clarification and correction. Always learning.
