2 triangles or one ?

Look take the 2 shapes below and add them in for a footwork matrix !? Good stuff eh.

Look there is no north south line. One of the things I regret is learnining to step forwards and backwards in a line mechanically. No doubt it has its place but the 'V' and '^' angles of stepping are really useful and worth in-graining early on in someone. Backwards steps are a bad habit to rely on to get out of 100% pressure. In a confrontation in public if someone is blocking your path a step diagonally forward or away would move you around - or away - from their colleague who may be behind you unbeknown to you.

The is a place for forwards and backwards lines but maybe their practice should not be moving me away from these other angles.

Nice picture!
Thats write... the balance is very important to keep in mind: (even if we dont think we use it, we use!)

Just one typo:
I would dive both together with a line in the middle, also.

That makes a cross.
The Cross.
Jesus. Its time to think on our Master. Reflection.
