(Side Facing Cat Leg Stance)

Mahamni Neko Ashi Dachi Karate Stance

There is 2.5 foots distance between your heels, lengthwise, and your heels meet at the same line width-wise (there is no width). The back foot is turned 112.5 degrees and flat, while the front foot is straight with the heel raised slightly. Both knees are pressing outward, and the body is turned 90 degrees toward the back leg. Your hips are shifted back so the body is closer to the back foot than the front (40/60) and the weight on the back leg is greater than it is on the front leg (60/40). The back knee is bent so the knee is over the toes and the front leg is relaxed straight. The body is turned 90 degrees.
