In most of the asian hoplologic arts, footwork forms the core of basic work for the first few years. The objective is to get the novice to unconsciously transfer his weight and blend it with his forward momentum when emmitting knock-out power.

Classic case in hand is the Indonesian martial art called ‘Silat’ which uses triangular footwork to advance, sidestep, enter into the opponents space from a diagonal angle and retreat. At higher levels, the use of leverage on the opponents ankle/knee/hip come into play, thereby destroying his base even without the use of hands.
