Now, we’ve done the weaver and we’ve done
the isosceles. What we’re going to do is the modified weaver, which can be done right leg
or left leg, whichever. If you’re right handed or left-handed it doesn’t matter. This is
really not different than the actual weaver. It’s just a little bit more exaggerated where
you’re going instead of bringing the foot only slightly, you’re bringing it back a tad
bit more and you may be spreading your base just a hair outside of your shoulders. You’re
not over exaggerating out to here, but yet you’re just within the realm of shoulder width
apart but slightly on the outside. You bring your strong foot back a little bit further.
Almost as if you’re getting ready to run type of position. From this position, I have stability
not as stable if I had my foot brought in a little bit more because my center of gravity
is below my hips so it kind of throws that out of kilter. Depending upon the situation
that I’m in or what I’m using this stance for, it may be conducive to what I’m doing.
From this position here, I would draw my firearm into a modified weaver and I’m bladed a little
bit more. I’m actually turning my upper body to almost make myself a little bit smaller
as I engage my target, all while leaning into it. This is the modified weaver where I’m
punching out and turning my body at the same time. My weight is on this foot, where as
before it’s pretty much distributed a little bit evenly. A little bit more on this leg
than probably I would like to have but again, this stance may be conducive to what type
of training you’re doing or what you’re doing. Whether it’s recreational training or some
type of training, it may work for whatever you’re into. Those are the 3 types of stances.
The weaver, the isosceles, and the modified weaver.
