Tips on fighting (for future reference):
Try to distribute your weight evenly onto both feet. It may not look as elegant, but you can get some stronger poses this way, which is always a good option to have. And you don't want your sailor to fall over too easily when she's hit.
Also turn your toes outward. In a real fighting situation, this would allow you to step easily in either direction. Plus it looks cool.
That's not to be too critical. It looks good. These are just some things to try. They're good for fighting with weapons, too.
