how is it when the foot fingers are used… the tiger step

When walking the circle, the back leg comes up but the front is not moving forward, keep stable. To reach this keep the 襠(dang), pull back the front leg sole on the ground and this way the back leg has a very stable movement. And more in the video.. (01)
