      Also known as forward leaning stance, zenkutsu dachi is marked by 60% of the weight on the front foot, with 40% on the back. The back leg is straight, bracing the practitioner from energetic rebound or push back that would interfere with the projection of force in a strong technique.

      Shoulders remain square to the front. Eyes stay level on movement, first shifting the front foot 45 degrees away then stepping through with back leg, first bringing the knees together and then out to the new stance.
