One of the general rules of movement in #pekititirsiakali is: when going left, lead with your left foot; when going right, lead with your right foot. There are, of course, exceptions to this rule, but they are just that: exceptions. The "lead with the same side foot" rule is a good habit to be in, from which you can learn to deviate.
For example: in this picture, #gurostas is avoiding a stick swing by simultaneously dodging it and stepping forward and off the line. If he had gone to his left with his right foot, what would happen? First, he would be "giving his back" to his opponent, which is a weak position to be avoided. Secondly, if he wanted to turn and attack his opponent but his right leg was forward, how could he do it? "Not smoothly" is the answer.
Good footwork habits will serve you well in every aspect of the #warriorarts.
