Weight shifting in stepping

by Chen Zhonghua on 2012/10/11

In stepping, the weight must remain in the center. This ensures balance of the body. Move the body weight to one leg. This does not mean shifting weight as in physical shape. Press the body weight onto that leg until you feel that the weight is solidly on that leg. At the same time, the other leg is empty and is pushed out by the pressing leg. Anchor the leg that steps out. Pull your original leg close to the newly anchored leg.

For me, the video did play well today.
Thanks for that Master Chen, it’s always very useful to watch your original instructions on video again and again.
