In English / The Explanation
First stand up straight and relax. It'll look funny if you're all
tense. Now, spread your feet about 3 inches apart. If you are right
handed, start with your right foot, if you are left handed start with
your left foot. Okay first, you make a baby step hop on that certain
foot. That foot should end up at a 45 degree angle and your toes
should be up with your heel on the ground. Then you slightly bend your
knees and put your foot down. Then you repeat that same pattern with
your other foot. It sounds very confusing, but it's not. It just takes
time and effort.
