Re: Footwork differences between styles

What Lynn said...plus often the stance reflects an integrated stylistic set of things that adds up to a logical grouping of differences - in other words, a specific stance may reflect optimal line of movement of entry as specified within one dojo, where the line of movement is different in another dojo...whether one falls in "inside" or "outside" leg, with toes "live" or "tucked" may be very logical based on the normal and expected trajectory of throws in a given dojo...etc.
