How far back does the Yoshinkan basic stance go and exactly what is it supposed to instill.
Hi PeterR!
Hi Mike K!

It's like old home week here.

I would say the Yoshinkan basic stance goes back at least a few hundred years. Both Kashima Shinryu and Maniwa Nen Ryu use the stance (Kashima Shinryu probably incorporated it from Nen Ryu during Kuni Zen'ya's lifetime).
