Improver Skating Lesson
August 5, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm BST£45
Start at Improver level if you have taught yourself to skate (on either inlines or quads) and can get around on your wheels but your heel brake stopping isn’t working well and you don’t feel secure on slopes or in emergency situations. Or, you’ve completed our Beginner class and want to take things to the next level.
The focus point of Improver is to increase your confidence by learning (and mastering) to stop correctly. No hill, slope or high speed stopping situation should ever be a problem again once you have attended this class. You will also learn how to increase your general speed and skating technique and gain fitness from your skating, while also learning the essential Parallel turn (in both directions). You will start to learn one legged gliding techniques to improve your agility and balance. If you are self taught and need some structure, then this class will inform your practice in a way that ensures continued progress.
Going on a street skate will seem much more doable after this class as your confidence will have improved along with your actual skating.
The prerequisite skills for this class are:
We strongly recommend you complete a Beginner Class or Private Lesson(s) before booking this class. Or you are self-taught and need to revise the basics. If you can skate but can’t stop” then this is the class for you.
