pardon me, i have read somewhere that walking is a good taijutsu training. due to that, i have the following questions:

1. how do you walk? i mean, where in the foot you center your weight? at the heel, at the ball or at the center of the foot(also known as K-1 or yongquan)? could you give a reason for it?

2. when you stand, where do you focus your weight? is it different when you walk? why there?

3. lastly, when you walk dogs, do you allow them to dictate the walk? if they chase someone/something, do you restrain them?

For dog walking, and dog training in general, check out Matthew Margolis aka Uncle Matty.

I like his compassion for our canine friends.

Ok, back to training.

I think you should use all of your feet but don't put too much weight on the heel. Keep the knees slightly bent, smaller steps and essentially use the leg muscles to support the body rather than the bone structure (locking the knees etc).

I usually focus my left foot on the floor and the right on the metal pipe that runs around the bottom of the bar. Left elbow on top of the bar and the right hand holding a counterweight (such as a pint of liquid).

I think it's best to let the dogs dictate the walk but I wouldn't go as far as to let them chase something as this is a very bad habit for a dog. I think understanding animal training and handling is also a good skill to have.

Look up Ghost walking in a book printed for the UK Army called "The Volunteers Pocket Handbook", it explains in there how it is done along with fieldcraft ETC.

I make awareness part of my walking training. Watching how other people are flowing around me as I move through a crowd is alot of fun. Kind of like frogger...but without the alligators!

Some martial arts don't walk! Take Kendo for instance. Their footwork tends to slide/step without ever walking. It's importand to keep in mind that taking what Musashui calls "In/Yo(Yin/Yang)" stepping is important. Basically right-left-right-left...is the way to gain position to win.

Every step should have meaning or purpose. Also, have stablity and flexiblity when walking.

Taihenjutsu training will develope nimbleness in your footwork. This is very important!

"Shizen Tai" means natural body. Walk Naturally so that your movement isn't contrived.
