I have been practicing Wushu for almost a year now. I love it. I feel that I am doing well in most areas (as my coach tells me). However, one thing I always get critiqued on is my horse stance, which is in-fact a fundamental thing.
When taking the horse stance, your feet should be straight. They should point forward. My feet naturally point outwards. It takes a conscious effort to straighten them out, and even then it’s hard. I don’t know why this is. In any other position I have no trouble keeping my feet straight.
Is this a common beginner mistake? If so, any recommendations on how to work toward a solution.
I’m actually testing for advancement in 2 weeks. If I can work toward improvements before then it would be nice.
