Getting out of Corners

Have you found yourself with your back to a wall? The Left Turn is an ideal maneuver for getting out of just such difficult situations. Keep in mind the pendulum principle. Your leg is just like a pendulum. If you halt it, your momentum will swing back the other way. If you let it keep swinging, it will carry you forward. Men, when you execute a Left Turn, donít let your leg keep swinging. Rather, let your right foot gently kiss the back of your left foot. This will halt your forward motion and automatically change you and your partnerís momentum in the backward direction.
