Ready Stance / Junbi Sogi
Reproduced from Encyclopedia Of Taekwon-Do, General Choi Hong Hi
Though there are many ready stances; Parallel Ready Stance, Open Ready Stance, Close Ready Stance and Bending Ready stance, they are exclusively used in the fundamental and pattern exercises.
The ready stance is not a direct part of any action. It merely positions a student before they begins their motions or allows time for concentration of spriit.
