Re: VERY Basic Footwork Question

Nichola Corduan,
if for medical reasons, you find hard to turn on the balls under the big toes, is one thing. But the correct anatomical way tu turn is on these balls not the heels, for a person who has no physical limitations or problems.
If one has any physical limitation or problem that forces him/her to modify the correct way is ok, but realice that is for your especific situation.
I know that there are many different ways to do thing right, but taht doesn't mean everything is right. There are also ways to do thing wrong.
If possible practice pivoting on the balls under the big toes. That's the right way
