How to learn the 5 basic Kung Fu stances
After understanding what stances are and what is their meaning in the context of Kung Fu (read Lesson 9.1), let's see the main ones (inherent to our style).

A note by Master Kongling - In term of training, all the other Kung Fu stances can be related to these ones (that are fundamentally from Shaolin). If you are able to correctly perform these, you will be easily capable to implement the others (from other styles, etc.). There are several versions and ways of execution, each of which (as you saw in the previous lesson) has its own meaning (to know, explore and experience). As far as we are concerned, these are the ones that have proved to be the most functional (I personally did several tests).

The 5 core stances of Kung Fu:

Ma Bu (horse stance) - It is the most famous and important of all the Kung Fu positions (read The correct position of the rider (ma bu))
Gong Bu (bow-arrow stance) - A stable position to push, punch, resist and more (read The correct position of the bow / arrow (gong bu))
Shi Bu (cat stance) - Front leg empty, ready to kick ([to be added])
Pu bu (crouch stance) - Down to the ground but ready to act ([to be added])
Zuo Bu (crossed leg stance) - This stance can be used to exploit the spiral force ([to be added])
HELP US - If you want to read the stances explanations more quickly, help us with a monthly donation, it takes little to give us great help (read how).

How to train the fundamental stances
To know how to position your body is (relatively) simple and it does not mean to be able to use them correctly. The theoretical knowledge is only the first step, the second is training: let's see how.

Standing stamina:

For a beginner, the first goal is to arrive to maintain each stance for 1 minute
It is not simple as it may appear, initially, it is likely that you experience pain / discomfort (it is quite normal)
We must remain completely motionless (if we can do it in front of a mirror it is perfect)
Try to understand the meaning of each stance, you have to seek for absolute balance, effectivity, symmetry and stability
Each position should be maintained within a combat (this means that you must be solid as rocks and not fall to the first wind chill)
Lower is better (read Kung Fu rooting: the pyramid concept) but don't ask yourself too much right away or you risk damaging your body (take care especially of your knees)
You must build the right standing stamina step by step, increasing the time and lowering the height
Once acquired a certain ability, the stances should become "comfortable", solid and ready to express explosive power (to reach this goal faster you can gradually implement weights)
Needless to say, training only positions strengthens you but is totally useless without the rest of the technical baggage
Explosive power:

Jump from a normal fighting guard position (read Lesson 5.2) to the specific stance you are training
Try to arrive precisely in the stance, without adjusting anything (no vibrations, corrections, unbalance, etc.)
Use your breath correctly, when you open or go down, breathe out, when you close or go up, breathe in (use the warrior's breath, read Meditation method 4)
If the stance is not symmetric (like Ma Bu), jump on the position to the left, return to the initial one with a jump and with another jump execute it to the right (repeat the cycle)
Another useful option for the asymmetric stances is the full body rotation (from one side to the other)
Each session can be of 5-10 minutes (mixing various stances or focusing on each one)
Try not to lose focus on the increase of precision and quality of each stance (read 7 principles to become a better fighter)
If the stance allows it you can also add single or multiple punches to insert a variation (read Same exercises, different execution)
A note by Master Kongling - Normally it is very hard to be able to move a Shaolin monk when he is rooted in a fundamental fighting stance (eg. Ma Bu) and for a not practitioner is almost impossible: this is the type of standing stamina you should search for.

In the next article we will talk about balance / stability.
