Hanging Leg Stance:
This stance is often held for a short period of time in preparation for many kicks as the first and last positions in the kick movement besides the resting position. There is one foot on the floor for this stance. The foot is facing approximately 45 degrees out from the body. The other foot is raised so that the top portion of the leg is held straight out in front of the body. The toes of the raised leg are pointed up so as to remove them from potential breakage during many of the kicks.
