How old is Recon now? I know Bailey struggled with footwork as a youngster but as her body started to figure itself out, her weaves improved as well. Some of it may be physical maturity?

I don't think you need it. Recon is keeping his head low as it is. I'd work on channels or WAM first- I think that will solidify his footwork even more so.

He is 21 months - And I was sort of thinking the same thing. He's just a little awkward with his body still. We were tugging in class last night and as I was swinging him around, he let go and went flying, doing tumbles across the room.

Really? I thought his head seemed pretty high... and when she mentioned jumping in with the shoulders at the beginning, that sounded familiar. He just kind of plows into everything. Idk. This crap is hard.

His head is below his ass. I'd say that's keeping his head down! He weaves like a BC.

He's butt high!

I think it could be lower.

I do too actually, but I still don't think it should be your focus. Use that set of WAM in your yard! I would almost bet you money that if you get swimming footwork (single stepping) that his head will naturally drop to where you want it.
