In any case, you should, if you perform all positions perfectly, end up exactly at the same position where you put the the word began. That position is represented in the drawing with the small feet. So look before you start with the exercise where you stand and check your position after finishing the exercise the word. PAY ATTENTION: the descriptions are a HELP resource. They are by no means intended to teach someone a kata from scratch. You do that best in one dojo, in a karate teacher's class.
The starting position is always Heisoku-dachi. Sometimes this is done first to the starting position Heiko-dachi passed, before the the word begins (in that case, that foot is moved to Heiko-dachi, which will be moved first in the kata), but sometimes also directly from Heisoku-dachi started.
