Hi.
I thought i would post this here as Kali apparently has excellent footwork.

What is the best way to move diagonaly back and to my left( south west if im facing north) if i am in a left foot at the front fighting stance and also diagonaly forward to my right (north east) if i am in a left foot forward fighting stance?

As i see it one way means changing stance and the other way means crossing the right foot behind the left.A no no right?

Thanks.

Depends on a few things. Where is your weight set? Is the opponent attacking your front leg? Etc.

Generally, if you mean to leave the same foot out in front after your move, then you want to move the back foot around and behind the front foot. They will not cross. The front foot is a pivot that the back foot "spins around".

If you mean to change sides as you move, then you would move the front foot around and behind the back foot (which will become the new front foot). After the front foot has slid back to just behind behind the back foot, the back foot becomes the "pivot", and the the other foot completes the spin as above.

Hope that makes sense.

This is similar to the male and female triangle drills we do in JKD, the video link MattJ posted is very helpful. It's interesting to see the triangles actually drawn out, but you can train without them too.

There are so many variables...
1 stick or 2, his strengths (good techniques), your strengths, ability to neutralize/timing, available counters, etc.
