when the pro's execute the walking step and hopping step they do it very quickly and smoothly and it's used in conjunction w/ other footwork patterns so it's easy to overlook, but they do use it. Yan breaks it down very deliberately for instructional purposes so it's easy to follow. Yann covers quite of bit in that video so there's other good stuff to take away from it like the "cross step", the "pivot step", the "inside step", and the "karaoke step" which pros use all the time. i see the "pivot step" being applicable to you. you could benefit from it since it helps you recover quickly after you hit your stroke. but that's cool if you find Bailey's more relevant for you. whatever works and helps.
