The Most important of ALL skate skills is how to stop and every skater should have several high functioning Stopping methods in their tool kit. We begin with the easier stops (excluding heel brake) and work through to the more complex ones.
The majority of skaters do not fully realise that by neglecting their stopping methods they not only increase their risks but also impede their learning of other skills such as fitness and speed skating.
This workshop is NOT suitable for beginners (who should focus 100% on mastering the Heel Brake Stop before any other methods).
Stepping Plough Stop
T-Stop (so that it actually stops you)
Powerslide (forwards entry)
Combining Stops into functional sequences (eg, T-Stop into Plough or Turn Slalom into T-
Stop into Powerslide).
