I'm just willing to give up on that and think there's many different ways to do "squats"... I don't think that any one way is the answer for everyone.
I'm pretty sure I know why I don't do squats with my toes pointed outwards and I've never had any knee pain. But, right now, my stance work is of minimal importance.

His recommendations here for how to move under load are very much in line with correct body mechanics as understood by every system of physical culture I've ever practiced.

I think one problem is many people can't even tell the difference between spinal and hip flexion/extension, from a proprioceptive standpoint.
Just go watch an average ab class.
The "Cook hip lift" can help in this regard, imo.

My only issue with MaBu is the knee adduction that some schools advocate.
