Re: The Only Things I Really Teach Are How to Breath And How To Walk

Chris, I'm trying to figure out a clear way to describe what I do when I walk. It is really difficult. We do move from the hips but we have to push with that back foot. Janet is on the right track. When I talk about hips I'm really talking about "koshi" 腰、which is a whole region, and it all has to be tied together and working for you. When you push with that back foot it is driving the koshi and the koshi is what moves. Which, as an explanation, is clear as mud. I'll keep working on it.
