20200613 arm swing step basics

The side step arm swing step, use the dang ..

The step is from the dang, the two thighs are used. The lower leg keep horizontal. frequent mistake that the lower legs are not vertical they are doing the step. Also note that the stable leg is not helping with pushing/jumping.

The structure is not changing, see the legs. Small or wide step all the same. Use the dang, keep the tension there.
