The “step and slide” technique we teach for footwork is relatively simple to learn and use.
When you move forward, you simply step forward with your front foot and follow by sliding the back foot
forward across the ground. When moving back from the target, we start by stepping back with the rear foot and
sliding the front foot back. When we move left, we step with the left and slide with the right foot. Move right, we
step with the right and slide with the left foot.
The “step” in the “step and slide” begins with a spring in the other foot. That spring propels the other foot
forward. For instance, when moving forward a spring in the back foot sends the front foot forward. When
moving left, a spring in the right foot propels the left foot to the side.
The basic stance should remain intact as you continue. Foot movement takes place symmetrically. If you step
forward 6 inches with your front foot, slide the back foot 6 inches up. If you go right with a 6 inch step, follow
with a 6 inch slide of the left foot. Your goal is to keep your feet at a consistent shoulder width.
