    General rule: try not to let the fans at ringside see the bottom of your shoes for longer than 10 seconds

    One smart ass post doesn't take the value out of the other ones. Lighten up.

    And I keep my feet shoulder width, at about a 45 degree angle (firmly on the ground).

    Ideally your front foot is at a 2 oclock angle and the back foot is pointing at a 1 oclock angle. Your feet are spread wider than your shoulders (whatever feels comfortable for you) and your knees are slightly bent. Also your up on your toes on the back foot.

    Changes from opponent to opponent.

    Toes facing away from your opponent in a running stance is always effective.

    Unless you're the genius known as Julius Francis and you're facing Mike Tyson. In which case you know you're going down... so you sell advertising space on the soles of your feet...
