Neko Ashi Dachi

Neko Ashi Dachi is a stance in Kyokushin karate. It translates to 'Cat Foot Stance.' In this stance, all the weight rests on the back leg, which is bent at the knee. The rear foot is turned at about 20-30 degrees outward, and the knee sits at the same angle. Only the toes of the front foot rest on the ground, positioned in front of the back heel at about the same distance as the front foot of moto-dachi. There is no weight on the front foot, and there is no bent in the ankle joint - front knee, front shin, and the rise of the foot (but not the toes) form a single line.
