Left radical is 'foot/leg' (足). Right radical is a doubling of a pictograph of a 'halberd', which here acts phonetically to express 'tread'. Originally this character meant, 'to take a step'; now it means 'to take action' in a more general sense. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Foot steps on two halberds, leading to action.'
