Kamae et Hito E MI

In Aikido Figure 1 is the basic posture. In this posture, movement to front and rear, or right and left are possible.  
The photographs under this text show two possible movements toward the front and the right and left side. 

The rotation of the hips determines the movement of both feet. 
The movement of the head determines the movement of both hands. 

However, the hips move before the feet. Do not be aware of only moving the feet. It is good practice to rotate the hips to evade an opponent's thrust.
