For a wilderness-bred barbarian, from a thousand generations of barbarians, ordinary walking – stealthy without thinking about it – is one “gait”, or mode of walking.

On the other hand, when you’re trying to sneak up to some mountain beast that you intend to carve into your dinner, or some monstrosity from the outer void that has some juicy wench in its clutches…

Where were we? Sneaking up on something with utmost quiet and care.

As you move forward, lift one foot off of the ground. Move it forward to the place where you intend to set it down. Now, slowly lower it until your heel begins to make contact with the ground. Your weight is STILL on one foot.

Gradually roll your foot forward until the whole sole of your foot is in contact with the ground.

NOW slowly transfer your weight onto that foot.

It’s a good exercise, even if your need for stealth is not that extreme.

Now, I had learned this technique last year from Tom Brown Jr., but my technique was rusty and I needed a tune-up.

What’s up, you guys?

If you don’t have a blog, then YOU DON’T REALLY EXIST!

True fact.
