comment Does Krav Maga have any roots of Aikido?
Can you expand on the particular techniques rather than linking to a video? It would help to have that descriptive text here in case that video is ever removed or if people can't access YouTube (and for whatever other reasons).

comment “Rules” for weight distribution per FOOT (not leg, foot) for any given stance/intent?
@Campbeln No worries. I think you asked a great question, and I'm glad to see the update. And welcome to the site!

I think you misunderstood what I was saying. I never said to rewrite it to ask for what is "best" but to remove the "what do you do in your martial art" portion. Your comment highlights what your question is - the differences and effects of weight distribution on your foot (and I would narrow this context down even more) - but all I merely was trying to get at was that the original main question you posed was in a format that doesn't fit the Stack Exchange Q&A model.

You are polling for various answers given the way your question is written which does not fit the model of Stack Exchange and would be closed as "not constructive." Please see the faq and this meta discussion for more information about this site. I suggest removing this and rewriting your question and making it a bit more specific and focused. Figure out what it is you want to know and then ask that.
