lol. Dudes coming to train decked out in 18k gold chains. Over here the poser are the guys who gauze up and get someone to help lace them up. It is more natural against SP's because you move outside with your lead foot and its the anchor while you pivot around with the rear like a compass, the other way not so much. You can try to look at it like a game, where you do what you can to face your opponent's side or back. How you do it is up to you. One of my favorites is (both of us are orthodox): You throw a 1,2 partner/opponent retaliates with a jab You move to the outside (as they throw teh jab), and throw a cross immediately AFTER you are planted so you can get power behind it This one is kinda of a "dash" step. You do your best to stay just outside the jab (same principles as slipping). Footwork here would be: your lead leg pushes you right as you keep the right leg "light", almost float like in that instance. At the end you should face your opponent almost at a 45 - 60 degree angle.
