Thanks for the reply. Everything this site has to offer is where I stand. But you are absolutely right about pitch location. Certain pictures can be deceving because it does look at times as if the foot comes completly off the ground. So therefore you have coaches teaching to slide your back foot forward and the back foot comes completly up just like the photos. How do you explain that?
