So I’ve been ice skating since I moved to Canada but not very regularly to be completely honest. The main reason is that I wasn’t feeling any improvements throughout my sessions. Every time I was just getting bored turning around the arena (or they call it Ice rink here).
So I looked on the Internet and I found a series of videos that really helped me a lot.
The guy is visibly from somewhere in Eastern Europe but he’s got perfect English imho.
Before your perform any of this you need to know how to skate at least barely without holding to the side wall.
As I said above it really helped me a lot, especially the one where he teaches how to stop.
The videos are here
A few bruises later you should be able to master the thing!
PS: There are some videos on YouTube as well but I find them to be “not” complete.
