That looks suspiciously like Yoshinkan based on the hands but those feet ... hmmmm. Where is Michael Kimeda when you need him.
just a few months late to this thread, but here i am.

That does very much look like a Yoshinkan kamae, not bad, but not great. The foot angle is bad as you have suspected. The front foot should be turned out slightly, but his are on too much of an angle. also the front knee looks to be turned out a bit, which is also dangerous. Generally i turn my front foot out at about 30 degrees. (Yoshinkan juniors are encouraged to bring a protractor for a few years, I used to have a special pocket built into my dogi pants.)

There are some Yoshinkan groups that turn the foot out like this, but i have never liked it or done it.


In case anyone was confused, the protractor thing was a joke.
