The basic movement fundamental in Jiyushinkai is to drop weight at an angle as you do suriashi. When you get proficient at this and are sensitive, if your foot encounters an obstruction it raises up and over the obstacle in a natural way. If going over the obstacle isn't possible, you then change direction. The foot is a "feeler" as much as something that supports you and pushes against the earth.
