Default Facing / Speed tripping rules

Is there a higher chance to stumble if moving to rear hex or moving two steps a second instead of one? Cannot remember where to find rules.

The Trip technique on Martial Arts, p. 81, doesn't suggest that an opponent is more vulnerable to a trip because of his speed or direction, but I agree it makes sense for the GM to apply a spot modifier. -GEF

Had not even thought of the technique, that makes sense too. I should have said "stumble" I guess. Like catching your shoe on a sidewalk or a chair leg or dropped cup or something.

Or maybe stuff like climbing or descending stairs in combat. Facing would be much more relevant than normal there.
