Or at least, thats how it appears in the video. Doing it towards the camera would have been a little better to actually see.

Woah....and all in a flash I discover that she's looking at a totally different part of the video than I thought.
That pic there is not crossing the legs.
Just for the record...that is towards the camera. That's as perfectly framed for the camera as you could ask for. First reread Mantis' post. Second it's too late for me to post what I thought she was talking about but I'll put up another vid cap in the morning of what I thought she meant and the only part of the step that's really vulnerable. The pic that's up there is key to landing heavy shots. That right there is a huge source of power. Thanks for posting that key transition.
In text, since I am too tired to produce another vidcap, "crossing the legs" in the way I was talking about it being hazardous before, would be when/if I step out to the right with my left leg or vice-versa. I'll do it ocasionally to cover distance quickly when flanking someone but it is a danger spot that I recognize. That step pictured above...is not.
I'll explain more tommorow.

Also, what were you referring to in your post?

Just to throw this out there - when I have to move in the ring and I'm not anywhere in range to be attacked, I move and walk normally. When we start to close the distance that's when the boxer stance comes out.
Commenting on how you'd sprint is a strawman for both "sides" here.You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

Will you post some video of using this footwork against an opponent?
I get the concept but it still seems like a rut when it comes to having to (suddenly) change direction.

I'll give it a shot tommorow. Last time I went in I tried to tape some kicking drills and my partners shins got to beat up to be good for anything afterwards. Of course it'll be opened up from what's in the clip. Looser and a lot of it done in reverse. I just find that you really need to ingrain it and make the opening and closing of the hips as extreme as possible if you want to get the most out of it.
I almost forgot this is what I thought Anna meant by "crossing your feet" and is kind of a gimme for a sweep if you can catch me in this transition:

Footwork question. To me, you appear to keep you feet too close as you move. This is bad in boxing as you can be pushed off balance. Big :eusa_naug where I train.
Have you had any problems with being pressured while moving? If so, is your opinion that the increased mobility of your footwork make the unstable stance worth it?You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.
