Suomy. Our problem was a combination moving the body to quickly and reaching with the free leg in the mistaken believe that we had flight. The point is that the legs need enough time to work properly for example, in the third step of the fox RT to allow the foot to swing back from the knee rather than just trying to swing the whole leg as one unit from the hip. The secret of soft knees "I think" is to allow the lower leg to move the way it does when we walk? Obviously we can't slow the body down to the point where we have no flight and there are also obviouly times when the whole leg totaly relaxed(dangly) will swing from the hip as one unit.
