Re: How to Turn

I like the idea of turns as best suits, turning on heels or toes changes the ma-ai and suits entering/drawing movements in each situation.
Re: lifting feet/ unweighting I remember Yoshigasaki sensei teaching for something like the tenkan movement one foot moves (so you end uo in a kind of horse stance) then the other foot moves - to regain Hanmi. Its a great may to avoid knee twisting forces
