Re: Footwork differences between styles

Thanks! That gives me a lot to think about and play with on the mat. Both with adjustment and places to focus for a straight foot stance and potential places to mix a toe out stance into my own aikido.

@Peter-Oddly I find myself settling backwards more with the foot turned out. By taking more weight on to my back foot it seems to relieve the pressure on my knees and hips. But I think I'll play with getting more forward and playing around with it a bit. I'll also take a look at NIshio and his students.

@Aejandro-Sorry, does more often than not work better than always in scare quotes. How about typically? If not can you help me understand the issue?
