    You generally use lateral movements to set up "forward" or "male" triangle approaches.

    lateral movements are not triangular.

    that is a different diagram.

    Lateral movements are side-to-side. In any given triangle, there will be one lateral step if you complete the triangle.

    A possible reason why feet might come together is for a lunge from standing position. Similarly when pressed in heavy sparring your feet may come together and you want to be able to take a big step to get some range. However, doing it with the feet together is really the basic way of showing and drilling the concept. Generally after that you might get yelled at for not being in a decent fighting stance.

    Triangular footwork is good because you can step back and forward while evading attacks or to get flanking position. A close range example of this is circular footwork (eg. avoid a jab) and on the other side of the spectrum almost linear (to assist with attacking defending at long range). You can change the angle as much as you need to avoid or set something up, and of course theres the reverse triangle which is great for attacking while moving backward.

    hmmm...i think we have a different definitons of what is a triangle step.

    there are quite a few different ways of viewing pantjar/langkah.

    a triangular movement is at '45' degrees relative to his direction of movement. to move laterally is a ninety.

    people who dont train in the neutral/void most always have a half beat delay from a cold start.

    If it was only the 45 degree angles, it wouldn't be a triangle, it woudl be a "v". Triangles have three lines.

    But because semantic arguements about what some guys randomly decided for terminology earlier last century(especially nonstandardized terminology) is dumb, let me put it more simply this way.

    Angular footwork is often set up by lateral footwork. Moving laterally offline will often give you the angle for an inward 45 degree penetration.

    okay, i understand what you are saying. semantically, to me, that is a square.

    and it is slower than a triangle, due to the larger fanning angle.

    which silatz do you do?

    IndoChinese, I think you and he may be missing something in translation

    and

    /\
    is a female and male triangle. There is one line that is lateral that connects the 2 45 degree angles.
    It is neither
    /\ or \/

    nor is it
