Saifa: Stance after arm grab & break

During the first section of kata Saifa, the grab break move has various views on what the feet positioning should be. The attached picture shows Shihan Higoanna in musubi dachi, however GKI have adapted this to be as close to hachiji dachi as possible. Somewhere between hachiji dachi and heiko dachi is probably realistic from a balance perspective
