    Seeking advice on triangular footwork.

    ====================

    Hello!

    I very recently began FMA classes, and triangular footwork has me stuck. I spent upwards of an hour with an instructor working on footwork alone, and continue to have the same problems.

    I'm a reckless hopper, and tend to do a combination jump/Ali shuffle kind of thing every time I speed up. I can never maintain an equilateral triangle, I'm always drifting or going...well, isosceles. I always bring my feet together, and I'm totally lacking in fluidity.

    So yes, I know that practice will eventually make perfect. But do you have any tips, tricks, advice, drills, anything at all to help with my home practice? I've tried putting post-its on the floor to represent the "points" of my triangle, but then I'm always looking at my feet!

    Thanks for your time and consideration...this forum rocks. :)
