So when I was at the Nago dojo, Uechi Kansei's son (whose name escapes me at the moment) was showing us some basics. So make the uechi elbow strike stance he stood with his feet together at a 90 degree angle (like when you bow) and then stepped forward three times the length of his foot.
His stance wasn't very low at all. And, in fact, he said that his understanding was that you shouldn't go lower in the stance than you can easily come up from (except for young men who should train longer stances for strength).
This more upright stance is very strong and table as a base.
Did you show compassion today?
