The goose-step is a special form of military step which is usually demonstrated in solemn military parades and passes in review of closed units. The marching troops swing their legs from a vertical leg to a nearly horizontally-extending one, bringing it down with a loud simultaneous stepping noise and continuing the cycle in unison. It emerged from Prussian drilling regulation during the early 19th century, where it was known as Stechschritt (literally, '"piercing step") and Stechmarsch.
