Response to Quick question
Despite all the symbolic mumbo-jumbo that people will like to attribute to this practice, the explanation is actually a practical one. Most people are right-handed, and stronger on their right side. That means if they need to balance on one leg, they will probably do better on their right leg than on their left. Stepping with the left foot at the beginningor ending of a form simply allows the student to keep his weight over his strong side, thereby making it easier to maintain balance and stability.
