Advanced Figure Skating Moves : Forward Stokes in Ice Skating


Hi my name is Dmitri Olympiev and I teach
at Pines Ice Arena in Pembroke, Florida. You can reach us on the web at www.www.pinesicearena.com.
Now the next advanced exercise is called “Forward-Stroking.” This is one of the most important exercises
that skater practices everyday. We’re going to keep the arms straight as always, head
up and now we’re going to sit down on both knees we’re going to push, extend our free
leg in the back and keep the skating leg bended. And hold, and hold. Now this exercise is very
important because it teaches us the balance of skating on one foot. It teaches us how
to hold the free leg position up too, which is very important after we’ve completed
the jump and spin, which is going to be called “Landing Position.” We’ll be right back.
