Re: VERY Basic Footwork Question

The way I have learned to turn in Korindo Tai-Sabaki, is on the heals.

If one learns to turn correctly (Korindo way), this way is more stable, since it is easier to bend the knees and keep a lower center of balance while turning on the heals. Going to the hills should be done without shifting the center of weight backwards. And at the higher level, the turn should be performed while all the foot slides on the ground.
