There are two poses in Sanda: Left and Right Pose. For the left pose, one of your feet stands out, the other, behind. The distance between the heel of the forward foot and the tiptoe of backward foot is the same width as the shoulders. The sole of your left foot completely touches the ground, while the heel of your right foot rises up a little. Your knees naturally bend a little. The center of gravity of your body moves to the right, the chest moves up and your stomach folds inwards. The left arm twists inside about 90 degrees, while the center of the left fist moves parallel to the tip of your nose. Your right arm twists inwards about 45 degrees, and your two fists come in front of your neck. The elbows keep naturally vertical or a little inwards, and your chin stays is a little lower. All the time, your eyes focus on the upper body of your adversary.

Defending movements:Defending movements can protect yourself, control and reduce the attacking strength of your enemy. In so doing, you can situate yourself in a more dominant position. The ultimate aim is to be able to effectively combine both defending and attacking. The purpose of exact and skillful defending is to help protect yourself, and create better positioning for the next assault.

Constant attack:requires a succession of coordinated movements at a fast pace. When employing these movements, a fighter will also make use of faking attacks to throw their opponent. With this, an adversary will suffer assaults from all directions and will have difficulty in defending. Every movement must flow from the other.

Sanda is a very practical sport, applicable to real combat. Practicing Sanda will cultivate a distinctive character; one of intelligence, strength, courage, strong-mindedness, flexibility and decisiveness.
