Well done SOL!

I notice your kata stances were quite short, is that just how you are taught or your own preference?
It's Shotokan not Shoto-can't!!!

my stances are a little higher then my instructors, so i guess its just a preference. i've seen lots of shotokan guys, both in the itkf and in other groups that use lower and higher than mine. i can go lower if i have to, but i find it easier, faster and stronger the way i do it now. always room for improvement though.
its not supposed to make sense
