First off apologies for wrong forum.
The reason I didn't post the vids of you walking with kettelbells or breaking was because even I understood those.
As for being ignorant, yes that is correct that is why I posted because I don't get the reasons for practising in that way. To my eyes the whole crossing of the feet thing is a no-no, especially as a fundamental.
Are there any vids online of the techniques being applied in sparring or somesuch?
It would make it easier for me to understand if I can see how it's applied, because to be honest even with your explanation I'm still finding it hard to see how it relates to fighting.
Don't ever tuck your shirt in, in front of this guy. What is the weight limit for shirt tuckedinness?

Its a baguazhang method of turning. They are not crossing the feet, and wonder where you are seeing this. They are bringing one foot up close to the other foot and then changing directions. This is taught to change your angle when someone is coming at you and you want to enter in to throw, strike or hit them.
And what is your background? How long have you been studying and have you ever had use it for real?
I will try and get some more vids up this week with a big friend of mine. Ill try not to tuck my shirt in less I upset that little mouthboxer who thinks he has a clue.

Darn, it's going to be in the morning but I'll be in the area from Thurs-Sunday. Possibly lunch? It'll be in Allston.
Story of my life: I see some guy with his shirt tucked in and call him a fat dork. Then the guy picks up 200 pounds of iron and walks around like he just got a stay of execution from the governor. "WHUT YOU CALL ME?" "oh, nothing, i was just admiring your viking prison tats..."
Here's the shirt-tucked-in-rule: You can tuck your shirt in as long as you can lift your arms and it creates enough room or 'puffiness' to hide your gut. then you must let it hang out (but only down to the top of your pockets, of course). If you are wearing a suit, go with braces (suspender), not clip-ons, and not with a belt. They should match your shoes, not your tie.
See, Mr. Dugas, I think we both learned something today.
