The Crane Stance (hakdari seogi) is performed on just one foot.
- The foot on the floor: the foot is flat on the floor with the knee slightly bent
- The foot in the air: the foot is lifted to touch the opposite calf, with the knee bent.
If the standing leg was held with the knee straight, this would be called a Single Leg Stance.
Naming the Stance
This stance is named by the foot that's on the floor. So for example if you're standing on your left foot, it's a Left Crane Stance.
