coming straight on or even going slightly left to right makes it easier to pivot.
I'm going so far as to say that my current understanding based on personal long term experimentation is that each point above works just like described.
So what did you hmmm to Bradley?
I played with Hwicha for two days this weekend and he asked me about how to face the target with the words how to utilize the hips. He was missing to the left often due to leg/hip lock which occurs because of moving the thigh as much as it can twist against the hip bones. Rain didn't help with the aim.
It's literally painful to see someone lock up right thigh to hip joint due to placement of the legs. Painful because I've had severely locked thigh and an abrupt stop that's twisted joints and muscles badly. Ouch! Don't do that people please. I think based on earlier vids of Aaron_D he could second the need to not lock the thigh against the hip.
