    I have an instructional video that displays this type of footwork. I don't have access to any video editing software so that I can cut out just a clip of it, though. I will try use Windows Movie Maker on it.

    This clip kinda shows it although it's not discussed. Watch how he steps when demonstrating.

    I don't think the footworks from either of these are what the kids are supposed to be doing. Still working on clipping mine.

    Ok, I somewhat tamed the beast that is Movie Maker and got this:

    Sorry about the quality; the source video is uber-awful.

    I'm no FMA person, so I don't know if what is being shown here is good,
    but I have a reasonable idea that this is what the kids were trying to do.

    I took one class of Arnis and that is the same stuff we were doing and these kids are doing it for a black belt evaluation? That's amazing.

    Thanks for the Footwork clip! Now I at least understand what they were implying.

    What exactly is the purpose of the footwork?

    As far as I know, it's to provide rotational balance so you can put more torque into your strikes. If you play a little tennis, you would know something similar to this footwork. But some FMA person might give a more/correct answer.
