Back to School, Back to Basics

"It is, therefore, essential to preserve the balance and poise of the fighting turret carrying your artillery. No matter in what direction or at what speed you move, your aim is to retain the fundamental stance..." 

-Bruce Lee, Tao of Jeet Kun Do

Those with ring experience can tell you, there is nothing nearly as valuable as a strong basic stance when you're under severe pressure. Good footwork isn't about shuffling or even angling necessarily. It's about efficiency and stability: Can you be mobile without unnecessary motion? Can you absorb and return at a moment's notice?
