About a couple of years ago I thought of how cool it would be to make a martial art. So I decided to think of a MA that fits to me perfect, and I thought it should fit well to everyone elses style as well. While I was thinking about how the stance is going to be I thought of fencing's stance and footwork. It is one of the best in my opinion. It really takes advantage of the human legs to its fullest extent. It is very flexible even if you don't have a rapier in your hands. Just using the fencing stance as a boxing/kickboxing or even a fighting stance I wondered why no other martial art has the killer footwork of fencing. Then some time later I found that Bruce Lee stole my idea before me for his Jeet Kune Do. :shrug: I thought to myself "Damn, my idea has already been taken." and gave up making a martial art for a while. Does anyone else know about the fencing stance and footwork and does it fit your body well? Bruce Lee thought is was great so that must mean something comsidering Bruce Lee practiced Asian martial arts and therefore would be more closed at times to Western Martial Arts.
