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).

Kashima Shinryu

Maniwa Nen Ryu

There is nothing new under the sun.
