Chamber

A hand positioning method whereby one or both hands are pulled in relatively tightly against the torso, often just above the waist. It is common to see one hand chambered while the other hand performs some action. If both hands are chambered then they may be positioned such that one hand is on each side of the body, or both hands may be placed on a single side of the body. The latter case is more commonly considered chambering, while the earlier forms are more commonly referred to as set position.
