Anyone have a good explaination for why the Korean styles have such a different back stance? My style has a 90%/10% from back to front leg weight distrobution with the heel raised on the front foot and only the toes and ball of the foot touching the ground. The explaination I was always given was that the weight distrobution is so drastic because it is a stance that you are meant to be able to kick quickly from. Fair enough, but as I've done more application work I've found that I always use a 'natural posture' more akin to the Shotokan 70%/30% weight distrobution.
