    which leg do you move to front when you hit a 1HBH for a rightie?

    move to front = ????
    does it mean which leg you move first? (for me, left)
    or does it mean which leg do you step with before finally swinging? (for me, right)

    edit: nevermind, you probably mean the last step before hitting, so your right leg would be the one; unless of course you enjoy hitting a really weak shot, i cant imagine any righty having their left leg in front to hit a 1hbh

    thanks. my question was not clear, as I didn't know how to phrase it.
    i actually meant the second.

    so step in the right leg and move the left during swinging.

    Your last step should be to the left and forward with your right foot. Your weight should be shifting from your back left foot forward as you swing.
