    there is no exact place or rule for that
    but try standing staight with your feet under your shoulders
    (dunno how what stance is called in english)
    now keep your heel of your left on the ground and twist your foot to the outside. now put your toes back on the ground and twist your heel,so your foot is straight again.
    now do this 1 more time.
    now twis your body so your feet are as far from eatch other as your shoulder
    they are not under your shouler
    1 is back other is in front.
    now that should be somewhere they should be.
    just find the best place for the best balance
    and rememder to keep the opening
    and it may never close, when you walk or any move you make. you keep the opening

    hope this helps
    hope you understand what i say LOL

    personally I feel that following traditional methods of standing are overated. but I do believe that your jabbing arm should always be in front to give you better reach to keep distance between you and your partner. but as far as your feet - as long as you are conformtable with your balance to the point where you feel that you can absorb a punch with your whole body you should be alright. but its going to take time to really fall into position without thought.

    It's all down to what your doing at the time.

    Keeping someone at bay witha jab then your in a front stance.

    Usually feet are slightly wider than shoulder width.

    IF your fighting nose to nose ,then you are in a netural stance where it brings your shoulders square where you can reach the opponent with two fists.
    This is where subtle moves and shifts in footwork can put ommph into your shots and get you slightly out of reach of the opponent at the same time.
    This is what needs to be understood and studied in detail so it comes second nature to you.
    Read fighting art on front page for more.

    Skipping mate, just do things like jump twice on one foot then change and try running on the spot while skipping, this will help you develop some footwork.

    Never cross your feet.

    Try and get your head around why you are stepping into a certain position as you practice all of what the other fellas said.
    IF you dont know why your stepping in and out of a stance or position then you will get read by the opponent.

    Aside from generally staying on your toes for faster movments back and forth and around the opponent ;
    You can also practice stuff like heal to toe steps off the front foot ,sliding the back foot into position while shuffeling along punching at the same time ;for when you get to go low and really sit on a punch, to get movment and weight in behind it.

    Slight shifts can move your centre line out of your opponents attacking range and at the same time put one of your arms further into punch range!
    so think about the small stuff too, its more important than many average fighters know about.

    Practice moving the front foot around to avoid an imaginary punch and allow your back foot to self adjust into a balanced stance so you are set to reply etc.

    EG: moving your front foot around the opponents front foot etc! (takes your head out and in in a u shape around their lead arm ,Try it out on your own or with a mate and see where you end up and whether it helps or not.
    Moving the front in and out to avoid,duck and reengage on the outside of his punching arm etc.
    Moving from the inside of someones arms to the outside of a lead arm is real handy to know how.
    Ducking while moving ,heel lifts when striking, foot turns etc etc are all in the game too (when the time is right).

    Some stuff in here may help a bit. http://www.saddoboxing.com/andre.html

    This advice Im about to give is when you get more advanced. When your skipping move your head side to side and try to stay in the same spot. This will alter your spine and make your body want to move with your head.
