    @eggnoy Im trying to put good info out there when I can. Setting up my seminar tour right now for the U.S. Ive been involved for a long time and I see alot of very unqualified individuals teaching FMA. No fault on their part, its just really hard to find the right info from the right person. Most credible sources on FMA are either hiding, selfish, or have made it very difficult to find and train with them.

    I'm finally picking up on the footwork. Had a training with Tim Waid recently. Was pretty awesome. There were about 10 people at the seminar, so very personal. Hope you're doing well

    Larger Triangles are used for having a "base" and increased balance. The smaller Triangles are used for turning more quickly, and more short term torque for the upper body, or being in a tight space. This one will rattle you though: Someone in a wide stance covers three inches in the same amount of time as someone with a smaller stance. But only one can TURN quicker. The smaller one! Knowing the purpose makes it easier to properly apply footwork in the right place-at the right time.

    YES! Very Good! Triangle footwork is triangle footwork, reguardless of its origin or backround. The only thing that separates ANY of them is PURPOSE. What your intended purpose is will dictate your footwork, and at the higher levels, it will dictate your opponents. Now we are getting into the strategy of things, you see? What happens between you and your opponent is a matter of "Degree of seperation" and range. The difference between a truly damaging strike or completely missing can be inches.

    So far it seems the pattern on the left is used more for forms. I'm almost certain that in the 64 attacks in PTK (I only know the first 12) that footwork is more common
    Where as in PTK technical sparring more of the footwork on the right is used. I could be totally wrong about all of this but from your demonstration thats the first thing that came to mind
