The difficulty in learning sacadas from a video, is that a sacada is
mostly an illusion, and many different things can go wrong. A lesson in
turns with displacements from someone like Pablo Pugliese is a lot more
useful than watching a video.
To the extent there is a trick it is as follows:
You must get the woman to follow a grapevine without any sacada. She is
stepping front, side, back, side in a circle around you. To execute the
sacada, you step into the space that she vacates, stepping immediately in
front of her back foot -- that is the one that she is shifting her weight
away from. Neither the leader's foot or leg kicks the follower's foot or
leg out of position.
