Good call Kolems! In Danny's defense, with King on the sixth, pawn on the fifth, you can sidestep with your king in either direction EXCEPT WHEN YOU ARE ON THE KNIGHT FILE. As you correctly point out if you move Kg6f6, and black responds Kg8h7, you can not make any progress without running into a stalemate. Your first move must be Kg6h6 !!
Danny, Incredibly after watching this video about 10 times, I noticed a small mistake @4mins 28secs. You say that the white king can move to either side but in fact only the move 1.Kg6h6 forces the win. If white plays 1.Kg6f6 then after 1...Kg8h7 the best that white can acheive is going back to where he started since pushing the pawn is a stalemate. This is explained in 1 of the chess mentor courses.

By starting with these basic King and Pawn positions, you will be able to work your way toward understanding and solving much more complicated puzzles.
