A stance too narrow provides you speed,
but leaves you imbalance which you don't need.
A stance too wide gives you power
but you'll learn you're a bit slower.
There must be a stance that you can use
To keep you in balance and to refine
The perfect stance that will not confuse
Is the on-guard position which does not confine,
You must maneuver with ease of motion
As you are free from any motion.
