The Street-Fighting Stance

The first thing is turn your head left or right, bring rear fist up to the side of your jaw with other in front of your jaw and coming from the side of your shoulder.  The fist in front should be moving back and forward a little to be ready to strike.  Bring head down a little so it can be covered by your fist.

The next thing is your legs, they should be slightly bent with one foot in front of the other.  The front foot should be somewhere under your front arm and other somewhere under your rear.  The rear foot is pointing sideways and front is forward, both of them hopping a little off the floor one foot at a time so that you won't be flat footed and you'll be ready to move on them.

This is the position you want to be in when you practice striking or footwork.  This form is the truth, it does not come from any style and any or all techniques can work easily from there.
