Stance and footwork.
Your feet should be shoulder width apart. Center dropped but not forced. Imagine standing behind your lawn mower and that is the right stance. Now when you step, imagine pushing your lawn mower. If you can master pushing the lawn mower (arms stay fixed, it is your center that moves the mower!) then you have attained the first level of stance and footwork understanding. Of course, when facing a master like me, your stance may crumble at first. Do not be discouraged because I too experienced this my first two classes.

Only now am I begening to understand what they mean by walking in the foot steps of a master. Thanks to Howard's "lawn mower" analogy I for the first time have a true understanding of center line theory and footwork thank you Howard the Only True Drunken Master
