    I ask this question because I come from football, and when I bent my knees, I would stay in a half-squat position, low to the ground. In a boxing stance,is this the same? Should my knees be bent to the point where I’m lowered, similar to a half squat, or should I just have them bent very slightly and keep my body neutral and upright? I’m talking about a basic on guard stance, I know they bend more when you duck, slip, etc.
