From Shizentai, the foot that will be the back foot turns 90 degrees then the front foot steps out and is almost 90 degrees too. But the front leg is straight and the feet are 45 degrees off of one another.
You can also get into if from being in the front stance (Zenkutsu dachi and then just twist 90 degrees).
The wt is spread equally.
Good for side strike, back fist, blocking techniques.
Prevents being pulled over in a direction.
